Why do so many young teens get involved in sex, smoking, drugs, etc.. nowadays? is it normal?
well, that's the negative effects of media.
I don't think it's normal, but then again, the value of decency has been degraded as time goes by...
There are many factors involved in this case, but the most important one is the media of information.
In our era, like 1970's to 1990's, it was not that easy to get information and people lived in harmony because they respected what their parents had taught them. Nowadays, we are bombarded with information and if someone isn't wise enough to choose between Good and bad, they will fall prey to bad information that will make them not-so-good person. Please, be careful.
