Parents see it as their teenís friends
, the professional term is peer group
, but the media is now giving a teens being together another term: pack mentality. Perhaps they felt the need because of the image of a pack of wolves, which fits in the news story about the two boys who killed Daniel Sorensen, a Detroit man. According to the article
on Freep.com, it was a hideous crime that would have probably not been committed had the boys not been together. It cites national statistics, Ďteens ages 14-17 are more likely to commit crimes with accomplices than people in other age groups.í
Still, there has to be something else going on there, like drug use. While Iíll agree that teens do crazier things when they are with their peers, there are other problems at play when a pair of teen boys murder. Do you agree? Let me know what you think in the comments section.
