According to Gallacher W. (2001) when they fell
inlove, she was barely into her teens, and he wasn’t much older.. Some saw a
star-crossed couple who found understanding, joy and maturity in each other’s
arms. Others saw impulsive kids whose reckless passion cut them off from
family, friends and more appropriate with drugs, and ended in tragedy.
Based on J Fam Psychol (2016) Emotional Over
Involvement (EOI) parents five minute speech sample is thought to measure over
concern and enmeshment with one’s child. Although related to maladaptive
outcomes in studies with young children. These mixed findings may indicate that
certain FMSS-EOI criteria reflect inappropriate and excessive involvement with
adult children, but do not indicate maladaptive processes when parenting
younger children. Thus, this study evaluated relations of each FMSS-EOI
criterion with changes in child behavior problems from preschool to first grade
in community sample of 223 child-mother dyads (47.98%;female;mage_w1=49.08
months; 56.50% Hispanic/Latina).
Based on J Health Soc Behav. (2011) this study used
longitudinal data from 909 young adults to examine associations between
substance used and romantic relationship status and quality. Heavy alcohol use,
marijuana use, and cigarette smoking, as well as relationship status,
relationship quality, partner substance use and other salient life
circumstances were assessed at four time points in two years after high school.
Canizares M. (2017) whether you’re as cool as a
cucumber in the first stages of romance, ignore your date’s follow-up once you
realize you like the person, or sit by
the phone anxiously awaiting a call no
matter how interested you actually are, your attachment style is always at
play. Formed as a child, it often surfaces early in relationships when
expectations are high and miscommunication shows up in abundance.
Heather R. (2015) Different relationships affects
teenagers in various ways. Friends impact teenager almost the same amount as
their parents. Teenagers go to their friends for help or to ask questions that
they could not ask their parents about. Most of the time their friends give them good advice but then there is the
down side when they put pressure on their friends to do something like to
smoke, drink and do drugs. In most cases they tell their friends how to dress
and act when around certain people. Love relationships just make it even harder
for a teenager to get a good education. Some start to fail in school because
they are hanging out with their boyfriend or girlfriend instead of doing their
work. Throughout adolescence, teenagers are positively and negatively impacted
by several relationships such as friends, family and love relationships.
Kilpatrick J. (2017) Puppy Love and childhood crushes
turn on teenage dating activities for atleast half of all high school students.
With the onset of adolescence, teens spend less time with family and more time
with peers. In the early teen years, mixed-gender groups predominate. By
mid-teens, up to two-thirds of high School students report they have dated or
are in a romantic relationship. Having a boyfriend or girlfriend in high school
can have significant effects on a teenager’s social development and personal
Chapple S. (2014) as you can walk through the hallways
every day, it is probably easy to notice happy couples hand-in-hand. In fact,
it is nearly impossible not to notice them. While it can be difficult to see
the drawbacks of teenage relationships, studies prove that they are not nearly
as close to perfection as young people often perceive them to be. The Centers
for disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that based on as study
conducted in 2011 on high schools in the United States, 476.4% of high have had
sexual intercourse, 15.3% of those reporting to have sex with four or more
people during their life.
Ireland K. (2001) Any American high School is teeming
with hormones, unrequited love, pressure and relationships. The teenage years
can be confusing to many, parents included. Some teens fall in love young and
curtain themselves off from other social experieces, whereas some are still
immature, young and still exploring their own development. When teens are participants
in a relationship, a variety of problems can arise that make teens feel
pressured, stressed out and even neglectful of other responsibilities. Talk to
your teen about appropriate relationships and what to watch for when committed
SocSci Res. (2011) Studies of teen dating violence
have focused heavily on family and peer influences, but little research has
been conducted on the relationship contexts within which violence occurs. The
present study explores specific features of adolescent romantic relationships
associated with the perpetration of physical violence.
Mack S. (2015) Teenagers experience pressures every
day. Not only are they undergoing unnerving biological changes, but they also
are transmitting from childhood to adulthood. Dating teenagers experience even
more pressure as they focus on building a relationship in the midst of all
these changes. Learn the potential problems facing teenagers who date. If a
teen manage on your own, ask family therapist for advice dating problem seems
too difficult too.
Sorenson S. (2007) Young people spend a great deal of
time thinking about, talking about, and being in romantic relationships
(Furman,2002), yet adults typically dismiss adolescent dating relationships as
superficial. Young people do not agree, half of all teens report having been in
a dating relationship and nearly one –third of all teens said they have been in
a serious relationships last for only a few weeks or months, these early
relationships play a pivotal role in the
lives of adolescents and are important to developing the capacity for long
term, committed relationships in adulthood.
Grey S. (2013 Oct. 19) Dating has many positive
benefits for teens, even if they easily get carried away with romantic
feelings. Appropriate teen relationships lead to maturity in teenagers and a
better understanding of adult relationships. Getting this practice in early
allows teens to discover what they want and need out of romantic relationships.
Through dating, teens gain essential tools in navigating the world and are
better able to develop meaningful intimate relationships as adults. One
positive aspect of teenage dating is that it facilitates maturity in teens.
Because of dating, teens have a better understanding of how affection and
intimacy function within a relationship, according to gateway, a publication
from the University of IIIinois at Urbana-Campaign that is dedicated to teen
issues. In turn, they are better able to interact with others, distinguishing
intimate feelings from companionate ones. Thus, teens grasp the power and
weight of romantic feelings and gain a sense of control over them. By pursuing
dating relationships, teens grow in their ability to discern lust from
Orthospsychiatry Am J. (2006) Reseach has
traditionally focused on the development of symptoms in those who experienced
trauma directly but has overlooked the impact of trauma on victim’s families.
In recent years, researchers and clinicians have begun to examine how
individual exposure to traumatic events affects the spouses or partners,
children and professional helpers of trauma survivors. The current study
examines qualitative interview data from 17 individuals: analyzed using a
reproductive methodology to identify how intimate relationships are affected when
there is a history of trauma exposure. The ff. primary themes were identified:
increased communication, decreased communication, increased
cohesion/connection, decreased cohesion/connection, increased understanding,
decreased understanding, sexual intimacy problems, symptoms of relationship
distress, support from partner, and relationship resources. Areas for future
research and clinical implications are identified.
Moore (2015) Many people who find themselves in an
abusive relationship do not realize how damaging it can be. Abuse typically
occurring in a partnership or marriage can be physical, psychological or
sexual. The effects of suffering any type of intimate partner violence can
influence quality of life and general well-being for you, your partner and any
other family members directly involved with the relationship. Understanding the
potential consequences of abuse may help you acknowledge the importance of
changing or leaving the situation. Physical abuse can result in temporary pain,
long term injuries and even death.
Reid M. (2001) people often construct emotional
barriers out of fear of intimacy. These barriers can have a variety of
consequences for your relationships. For example, your relationships might
start off intensely and then come to abrupt halts, suggests couples therapist
Alec Wilson, in his article ,” Fear of intimacy/Commitment”. In other cases,
you barriers might cause you to stir up emotional turmoil whenever the
relationship seems to be at peace, he warns. Learn the causes of these
emotional barriers to enjoy a successful, intimate relationship.
Based on the New Dir Child adolesc dev. (2008)
Compared to middle and upper class youth, lower class youth have a higher
prevalence of sexual activity and are more likely to cohabit or to marry early,
but they are less likely to every marry. Lower-class women have strong desires
for marriage but difficulty in achieving common pre-requisites for marriage.
Social Class also shapes the relationships of special class graded groups of
youth such as sexual minorities, military service personnel, and prisoners.
More research is needed on how the state and its laws and institutions
constrain even the most intimate features of young lives.
Dev Psychol. ( 2013) The delayed entry into marriage
that characterizes modern society raises questions about young adults romantic
relationship trajectories and whether patterns found to characterize adolescent
romantic relationships persist into young adulthood. The current study traced
development transitions into and out of romantic relationships from age 18
through age 25 in a sample of 511 young adults. The developmental antecedents
of these different romantic relationship experiences in both distal and
proximal family and peer domains were also examined. Analyses included both
person-oriented and variable-oriented approaches.
