Teen Girls

The Crisis Years
The challenges teen girls face are tougher than those faced by boys; no parental relationship, in and of itself, is strong enough to see a daughter through these years. If you want your daughter to emerge from the crisis years as a healthy, well-adjusted adult, consider involving your daughter with a mentoring program.

A Difficult Transition

What is happening — both within girls’ own bodies and within our society — to make the challenges they face more dangerous and complex than for any previous generation? Because puberty happens earlier and is more apparent in girls than boys, it can be a very difficult transition.

Today’s changing society makes it even tougher for girls to adjust to their own changing bodies. Girls are struggling with media manipulation, uncertain moral standards, self-loathing arising from impossible standards of physical beauty, heavy peer pressure concerning sexuality and substance abuse, and a host of sobering academic and career dilemmas.

    Have you heard of the pantyhose killings? Our society is really becoming more violent all the time and women need to know how to protect themselves. I’m a student of Psychology and this information was given me.

    The information given me was that this occured in the early 1970?s. The victims were all university girls. The victims were all wearing micro mini-skirts and pantyhose.

    The killer would hide inside their apartment. As soon as the girl would step inside the door, he would grab them and place them on the bed. He would put a pillow over their face and began suffocating them. He would revive them and smother them three or four times over.

    After smothering the life out of his victims he would remove their pantyhose and keep them for a sick trophy. The girls were not raped. They were found fully clothed with the exception of their missing pantyhose. The pantyhose were never removed until after he killed his victim.

    A classmate of mine emailed me this video that shows how depraved many are within our culture. We are studying the dark element within the human mind.
