Positive Attitude Quotations for YouthThe youth of today will decide the future of tomorrow and this is the reason why we have always emphasized upon youth development and this compilation of positive attitude quotations is no exception.

Being assertive does not mean attacking or ignoring others feelings. It means that you are willing to hold up for yourself fairly-without attacking others. – Albert Ellis, Michael Abrams, Lidia Dengelegi, The Art & Science of Rational Eating, 1992

Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd. – Edith Sitwell (1887 – 1964), Taken Care Of ,1965

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. – Herm Albright (1876 – 1944)

I happen to feel that the degree of a person’s intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic. – Lisa Alther, Kinflicks, 1975

Complaining is good for you as long as you’re not complaining to the person you’re complaining about.Lynn Johnston (1947 – ), For Better or For Worse, 11-06-03

I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances. – Martha Washington (1732 – 1802)

A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug. – Patricia Neal

Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. – William James (1842 – 1910)

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind. – William James (1842 – 1910)

Losing Virginity at Early Age-A Concern

Posted by Kelley Halter On September - 6 - 2010

LOSING VIRGINITY AT EARLY AGE- A CONCERNDay by day in this very increasing modern world new studies are revealed and the statistics are being revised. Experts now say that increased sex education and callous attitude of parents has eventually helped in bringing down the average of losing virginity among the youth at early age. There are many reasons for it such as declining puberty age i.e. for girls it is 9-10 years and for boys 10-11 years.

Television, magazines and internet, social networking sites further creates curiosity among the teenagers and make them feel like to experience the concept he/she has gathered about the past years about sex. The parents’ uninterested attitude forces a child to find support and look for alternatives such as sex for stress. Attraction among the opposite sex is natural, but nowadays teenagers take all in the stride of fun. It is also seen that that intake of alcohol and peer pressure group is another major reason in teenagers which lowers down the average of losing virginity to 17 years.


Studies have revealed that children, these days, are losing their virginity at a very young age. Experts say that with the average age of puberty going down to 9-10 years for girls and 10-11 years for boys, the average age for losing virginity too is going down. And the deadly paring with this is — awareness about sex is more these days and information (not always from the right sources) is freely available. Television, movies and most prominently the Internet is loaded with extremely easily accessible information and graphic details. This, most of the time, helps to entice the youngsters to experiment, who already have hormones raging through them.

To tackle with all the complications, lower maturity level of children and its consequences should be dealt by regular counseling actions along with parents. The teenagers should be taken seriously and must be made aware of the good and the bad consequences. Children need to know that sex is just not a physical attribute but a gift in a relationship which should be taken seriously and mere not a fun.

Also, teenagers need to understand that saying no to losing virginity at young age is not a sin. It must be taken seriously and one should know the limits.

Youth Radio received an award over the weekend for investigative journalism at the annual Investigative Reporters and Editors Inc. conference in Las Vegas. The award was for a series aired on NPR’s “All Things Considered” titled, “In the Kennel: Uncovering a Navy Unit’s Culture of Abuse.”

The Youth Radio team told the story of an American sailor’s abuse by his chief. The sailor had been hogtied in a chair, left in a kennel spread with feces and forced to simulate sex acts on videotape. They revealed more than 90 incidents of hazing, sex solicitation and embezzlement, uncovering widespread psychological, sexual and physical abuses across the unit, a pattern which had been investigated but dropped.

Their report resulted in a thorough examination of the conduct of commissioned officers in the Bahrain chain of command, the forced retirement of the unit’s chief and a review of the Navy’s response to complaints.

The supervising team responsible for this project was Youth Radio producers Ellin O’Leary, Charlie Foster, Rachel Krantz, Nishat Kurwa and Lissa Soep along with NPR reporters Tom Bowman, Graham Smith and Chris Turpin.
