Many teenagers are troubled and have problems from a very young age, while others are able to pull through these problems and continue on their way. I have always wondered why it is that children can come through the same family, with what looks like the same circumstances and one child will do very well, while the other child gets into trouble. Many researchers have studied this process and found that the way that children are parented may be one of the reasons. Smith (2010) suggests that the mother’s personality may be one reason that children behave in certain ways. Smith suggests that good parenting happens when a mother is high on the extraversion scale and low on the narcissistic one. This may be true for some children and this can be one of the reasons that they act out. Also, in this researcher’s opinion, some parents attach themselves to some children and not others. As an example, I have seen some parents who pay a lot of attention to one of their children and the other one or two seem to be neglected. I am not sure why this happens, but it seems to make the children work hard for their mother’s attention. Before I took this course of study, I do not think that I paid as close attention to people and their habits as I do now. I would say that this course of study makes a person look at everything in a different way. I have grown as an individual and in my church. I have looked at my life through this coursework and decided where I really wanted to be. I have many teenagers in my church that are troubled and I have done my best to reach to them and their families in order to help them flourish in whatever they are attempting to do. My faith has become stronger and I have been able to go out into my community to help others. Sometimes I have worked at shelters to pass out food or to help in just talking with people. My children have learned to help in these ways also. I think it is very important for children to begin doing volunteer work early in their lives so they understand the circumstances that other people go through. I believe this is very healthy for children to understand. I have learned that everyone needs to be heard and to be understood. The vast majority of society seems to move through life without really paying attention to each other. Whether we know someone or not, it is up to us to help all people be heard and understood. One of the reasons this is so important is because we have many people experiencing trauma in our communities. Trauma can come because of terrorist attacks or it can be from losing a home or losing a loved one. In an article by Altmaier (2011) I learned about how counseling has not created a strong definition of grief and what it does to people. Without a good definition, they cannot create grief measures that really work. Altmaier outlines 10 grief domains that she suggests that counselors should be aware of as they work with clients. Some of these domains include: physical symptoms, cognitive problems, uncertainty over the future, injustice at loss and so forth. I believe that as counselors, we really do need to understand that people move through grief differently and we need to be aware of the signs that someone is grieving. In terms of my being a social change agent, I see myself as someone who is going to do my best work in communities where teens are failing.
