Episode 2.0 Teen Violence “YOU CAN SEE A LOT BY JUST LOOKING”

Episode 2.0 Teen Violence  “YOU CAN SEE A LOT BY JUST LOOKING”
TALKBACK for Teens is a show where teens can discuss the topics that are important to them. A discussion by teens for teens. We are coming to you from New York, Public Access Television, television that means something. So much of what we see is just (what passes for) entertainment, often offensive to anyone with sensibilities, or just stupid. If you are a teen who wants to be part of the discussion, start a thread, join a thread, suggest a topic. We filmed this episode the day after a seventeen year old stabbed his girlfriend in the face in a local grocery store. Have you witnessed violence among your peers? Ever been involved in it? Do you have something to say about it? We hope you will watch and consider; perhaps you will encounter issues like the topic you see being discussed; we hope you will join the discussion; if confronted with a problem, we hope you will act proactively and rationally rather than reacting emotionally. If you are a parent or teacher or school administrator, watch, consider, and learn from teens; you may also use our shows in your health curriculum by topic, with permission.

We are a show and website dedicated to youth: the issues we face and the goals youth have accomplished. The show is all about their obstacles; how commonplace they are, and how other teens have overcome them. The counterpart site/Twitter/Facebook is all about uplifting youth. We offer a blog that will focus on one topic every week and offer advice through it. We also hope to soon incorporate youth work on it. We would love to showcase your work: your writings, art, and anything else you're proud of! Our twitter is all about motivating you; so that you end everyday the best possible you!
