My Teen Listens to Music About Sex, Drugs and Violence: Why Am I Not Worrying About It?


My Teen Listens to Music About Sex, Drugs and Violence: Why Am I Not Worrying About It?Many teenagers listen to music that talks about sex, drugs, and violence. Many parents may worry about this initially. More and more music these days exemplifies negative behavior, and teenagers are often very impressionable during adolescence. The last thing parents want is for their students to be taking part in these sorts of behaviors. 

Red Rock Canyon School is a residential treatment center that is very much able to help troubled teens who are dealing with problems like drug abuse. If you are a parent that wants to learn more about Red Rock Canyon School, please call one of our Family Advocates for more information today at 866-452-8121.

Music and Troubled Teens

When it comes to music and entertainment, the fact of the matter is that most teenagers who listen to this sort of music ultimately don’t take part in these sorts of behaviors. Parents should teach students the difference between these lyrics and how they should live their lives. Many parents may be apprehensive when it comes to allowing their student to listen to music that glorifies sex, drugs, and violence, but discretion is a powerful tool in these sorts of situations.

There is a major difference between artistic expression and real life. This is a distinction that can be difficult to make for teenagers. Many adolescents idolize famous musicians and want to be like them. If parents can teach their students early on how to distinguish between artistic expression and real life, they’ll be able to live more positively in the future. Take part in your kid’s lives, and be there for them as they need it.
