Teens must be controlled -- that's the prevailing picture of youth presented in the media and by government officials. In this whirlwind tour of 10 common myths, Mike Males shows you the statistics -- about drugs, alcohol, sex, crime and curfews -- to reveal what teens are really like, and what they really need.Among the lies you will learn about in Framing: - Lies 101: What's at issue here: bad behavior -- or bad press? As Males shows, teens are far more civil than what the poverty and abusive conditions endured by millions of them would predict.- The Dawn of the Super-predator: government and law enforcement officials incessantly misrepresent "youth crime" and predict "adolescent super-predators" despite a general decline in juvenile crime. They ignore the even worse adult trends. But serious teenage crime is rarer today than 20 years ago. Instead of challenging the false assumptions of the conservative anti-crime onslaught, liberal interests have embraced them -- at great cost to reasoned policy.- Curfews -- Putting the Truth to Bed: curfews stop crime, right? Wrong. Analysis of curfew and other "get tough" measures show they discriminate against minorities and are associated with higher, not lower, youth crime rates.- Pot Boilers, Coke Hoaxes, and Smack Scares: what can we do about a generation lost to drugs? It's a question often asked -- without realizing that teen drug abuse is falling while adult abuse is high and rising. Worse, Clinton-era policy mindlessly punishes youth while evading the real hard-drug crisis among adults.- Conception Deception: the biggest issues in "teenage pregnancy" and motherhood are finally getting an airing -- intractable poverty,violent and abusive families, the role of older men, the surprising new findings that earl… (més)

To read the mainstream media, a person would think that America's teenagers are reckless maniacs, getting drunk, stoned, pregnant or murdered by the thousands. Males, who has spent years writing about, and actually talking to, youth, gives a very different answer.
A teen's home situation is a much more reliable indicator of whether or not they will smoke, drink or abuse drugs than peer pressure or pop culture. In 1996, when teens were supposed to be abusing drugs in record numbers, about 100,000 adults were taken to hospital emergency rooms for heroin or cocaine emergencies; in the same year, only 1,000 teens made such a trip. Little-discussed aspects of the teen pregnancy "epidemic" are past sexual abuse of the girl, usually by a family member, and the large number of fathers that are over 20 years old. The media would seemingly rather reprint law enforcement press releases than actually analyze crime statistics. They also tend to lie about crime trends, even when they are going in the proper direction; not stretching the truth, or differing interpretations, but it is closer to saying that black is white and up is down.
This is an eloquent and fascinating look at how badly young people are treated by their elders, filled to overflowing with numbers, graphs and statistics. It is highly recommended. ( )
