Is it just me or watch the movie "Juno" care of any other responsible adult?
I mean, the critics raved about tome.Los Angeles Times said: "Juno" is hilarious and sweet-tempered, perceptive and surprisingly ...". based Perceptive? Grounded? How many 16-year-old girls have the communication skills, control over emotions the total acceptance and support "Hippy-Go-Lucky," a parent who Juno. i found the movie to be cute and work well, but also a very laissez-faire in the sense that it represented the best possible circumstances in which any pregnant teen could find. No, it's fair that thousands of young women looking for answers at a time in our society, when we try to discourage teenagers from engaging in sex more reasons than just pregnancy?
As I watched the film with her husband, stepson, and his 16-year-old girl, I could not help but wonder if, as she watched Juno autonomously drive itself around town organizes her life, she thought, "it's not such a big deal. If I get pregnant, I will look at Pennysaver, find some rich people who want a child, and in nine short months it will be over. "And how many other teens out there thinking the same thing? Is it possible that in our "tight" part of the country, we managed to have the same resources for teen mothers-to-be as, say, in the west or the southern states? And he crowded center of drug and alcohol problems are more complex question than it should be? Maybe not.
It seems that the simplicity of pregnancy meaning Juno 17 girls from high school in Gloucester, Massachusetts, which has been reported, all were pregnant, and not by accident. Although details are still sketchy, it appears that the pregnancy was planned, and even celebrates youth. Whether their parents are cool enough to make them the support they need? I hope so.
News that "Mayor Christopher Farmer said the girls are generally" girls who have self-confidence and lack of love in his life. "Although the inspectors first reported that the girls made a pact to have babies together, the mayor said when asked how he knew the inspector of memory failed. They could have made such a story? I doubt it. Older youths from the same area have commented that they feel the girls did as they were looking for "unconditional love" and acceptance - a clear symptom of low self-esteem.
and so, unlike the fairy-tale ending in Juno, I believe that now we are left to deal with that as a society - schools, parents and teens alike. It is unfortunate that the Gloucester girls could not see the right and far-reaching consequences of their actions. But I think the only thing left to do is to try and prevent this from happening on such a large scale again. But how?
I think we need more and better sex education, birth control information available, and most importantly, self-help programs for young women everywhere to figure out how to live independently and to take responsibility for their actions, that is their choice not to be limited, and that does not have to follow the crowd. Life is interesting and difficult, but it holds endless possibilities and they should know that.
I know, I know, Juno was the only film - creative expression, artistic interpretation written by someone who never intended to hurt or even affect anyone. I also understand that not all movies have a duty to go and responsible way to paint both good and bad sides of every issue - some movies are just for entertainment purposes. I just want to explain to young girls at Gloucester High School.
For those of you who think I am that our mountain of molehill let me just admit that I am one of those people who care about the messages being received by our young people, and not really interested in prosecuting those who send them . Hey! Maybe DVD might include a disclaimer that says, "WARNING: This is not real life"? Oh yea, select -. Nobody liked it when Tipper Gore has proposed, or
My wish is that Juno and events in Gloucester spark discussions between kids and parents everywhere about the seriousness of pregnancy and all its possibilities and effects. These days young women did not avoid as the year when parents are expected to send their daughters "away" for a time so that they can deliver their babies - but the reality is what happens isto.Potpuno new person comes into the world and must be cared for and loved and financially supported and learned all about the world and how movies are just movies and not in any way have an impact on fashion trends, life choices, or who lives and dies.
