There’s no doubt that being a teenager is not easy, yet being a teenager’s parent can be even more challenging. The need to push boundaries and to experiment extreme situations is at it’s peak in our teenage years, and sometimes it may lead to reckless and dangerous behaviors that can even be life-threatening. Weather you are a teen or a parent, you should probably know these bizarre and extreme trends, and what their consequences might be.
Snapchat resembles other social networks, with one major difference: all the photos, videos, texts and drawings are viewed and then deleted after a limited time span (1 to 10 seconds). Teens use this app for sexting, cyberbullying, cyberstalking etc. Recently, a 16-year-old fatally shot his peer in the face before taking a “selfie” photo with his body. He sent the image to a friend via Snapchat, who saved it on his phone before it was deleted, showed the photo to his mother and she turned the image over to police.
