However, from exploring various topics on the concepts of adolescents in the modern society, drives an understanding of the factors that result in origin of these issues. These issues lie because of various patterns of culture in society (Laser et. al, 2011). Discussion
From the overall study of essays discussed in this course it is outlined that; the external social and environmental factors, that spoiled children, are the main reasons of all the issues created by adolescents in society (Strauman et. al, 2011). Various aspects of this course aimed in conceptualizing a range of development concepts of adolescence and consider the individuals and groups who work with these children in various sectors. There is a detailed analysis conducted over the major factors that affect adolescents and their influences over society. The actions that adolescents take in affect of those external factors like suicide attempts and unwed pregnancy and abortions. Also there exists an immense issue in employment of adolescents which even has positive and negative impacts on American society (Head, 2002).

Overlooking at all the factors and concepts on adolescence it has been analyzed that these factors are even relating to our current careers. The key role of adolescents in any society is to prepare for the adulthood and become future leader of society. However, adolescents are normally given to wander between their childhood and adulthood, this responsibility is transferred slowly and the young adult will get ready in accepting tasks which are associated with their new position in society. The initial study of public and private schools has identified the essential problems of high school, these identified problems highlights that adolescents in today’s society are completely cut off from adult society than before (Malekoff et. al, 1997).
The research has shown that secondary education is most essential in our complex industrial society. Our independent “society of adolescents” and the adolescent culture has no interest in education and focuses more over the attention of teenagers on cars, sports, music, dates and other matters which are totally not related to studies and future building of themselves (Strauman et. al, 2011).

The learning from this course is to understand the reasons for which issues with adolescents develop. This understanding is developed when we must learn the ways through which we can cater adolescents’ negative responses (Head, 2002). One of the major reasons of negative behavior of adolescents towards society is negligence over what the adult says. This is because of the parental inability in upbringing their children. The relationships that develop between parent and child have been extensively researched during the past two decades Patterns of parent-child relations have been shown to; significantly influence a child's emotional, behavioral, and cognitive development. This influence may last entire lifespan and cross generational boundaries. The parent-child relationship contains many aspects and subtleties. Theorists have tended to focus on areas such as affection, child-centeredness, involvement, love, and the amount of conflict in the parent-child relationship. Because this association is so fundamental, it is critical to examine the factors which may change or influence parent-child relations (Abidin, 1983).
The age distance from independence profoundly affects the attitude of adolescents
