Ask any average student what is essential for his or hers survival during exam season and its most likely the first answer will be coffee.

Children of divorce are often overlooked regardless of the situation. This study uses the data from Leuvens Adolescents and Families Project (LAGO) for their case that there is a relationship between children of joint physical custody and their general well-being and feelings of depression.

Hollywood is one of the few industries where there is little to no discrimination between men and women. However, it was not always like this.

This emphasis is often due to self-esteem issues teen girls have when comparing themselves to impossibly skinny supermodels that embody our society’s image of an attractive woman.

I choose to focus more on what makes teen boys depressed because I feel that it is important to take both genders in account when studying an illness.
