What are the top 10 problems or worries that Teens face Today???

If you are a teen, what are some things you are worried about or have problems with?? Things like, family, faith, high school, love, cutting, drinking, drugs, porn etc. etc. I'm just wondering, so if you could give me an idea, that would be great!!! =]

Update:

I notice that none of you put in depression/self harm

I think that is a big problem today.

But over all, most of the answers have been pretty good =]

Update 2:

To Tayena GG:: I guess it does depend on where you live, as it is a big problem where I'm from. But perhaps life for you is a breeze?? But I would not call those people stupid or anything like that. It is like a disease, how would you feel if someone you knew had cancer (lets say from smoking) and you were very close to that person. I called that person stupid for having cancer..yahh, I think that would be very rude and insensitve

    1. Pregnancy

    2. Peer Pressure

    3. Drugs

    4. Alcohol

    5. School

    6. Family Problems

    7. Body Image

    8. Virginity

    9. Gossip

    10. Violence

    Self-harm is a problem but I don't think its that common amongst teenagers, at least not where I live. I think I have only met one person that had a habit of cutting themselves, but I guess it all depends on where your from. Where I live, cutting yourself/ going through depression (where you feel the need to commit suicide) is thought of as stupid, no one ever does it.

    Sorry I think I worded it wrong, I didn't mean it in an offensive way. I didn't mean that the people that cut themselves are stupid, I meant the whole concept/idea is thought of as stupid. Calling people who do harm themselves stupid would be ignorant, we just don't understand the whole "idea" of it, but we don't think any less of them (definitely not stupid). We just think the whole idea of releasing pain by self-harm is quite ironic.
