Example text

108 In general, according to W. “110 Personal devotion among adolescents is associated with reduced risk-taking behavior. 115 For this reason, we believe that our society as a whole, and youth advocates and youth service professionals in particular, should pay greater attention to this aspect of youth development. This task will not be easy. Because we are a philosophically diverse and religiously plural society, many of our youth-serving programs and social environments for young people will need to find ways respectfully to reflect that diversity and pluralism.

Ignoring or denying this challenge will not make it go away. Indeed, when adults choose largely to neglect the critical task of sexually enculturating the young, they are left essentially on their own—perhaps with some help from Hollywood and Madison Avenue—to discover the social meaning of their sexuality. The resulting, largely adolescent-created rituals of transition are far less likely to be prosocial in their meaning and outcomes. Young people have an inherent need to experience the advent of fertility, physical prowess, and sexual maturing within an affirming system of meaning.

This conclusion highlights the importance of the social environments that we create, or fail to create, for our adolescents. As stressed throughout this report, the interplay between environment and biology is profound, and its consequences run deep. Social context can alter genetic expression and impact neurocircuitry itself. We as a society are doing a remarkably poor job of addressing our adolescents’ partly hardwired needs for risk, novelty, excitement, and peer affiliation. Wishing that teenagers were different won’t make them so.
