  • The Social Scene In São Paulo

    1. 1. Social Scenes in São Paulo
    2. 2. Autonomy contours Painful process in many ways, rewarding and joyful in others Different than the other development periods Although teenagers already have some adult aspects, they keep some of the childish aspects Adolescence
    3. 3. Communication Barriers Be aware of any barriers in your communication as these will probably lead to an abrupt end to the conversation. These barriers often include: ordering - You must..., You have to..., You should..., etc; over-sympathising - Don't worry, you'll be all right; warning or threatening - You'd better ... or else...; lecturing - Did you know..., The truth is..., etc; diagnosing - Your problem is..., You're doing this because..., etc; judging - You're wrong, You're being stupid, etc; interrogating - What, Why, Who, How, etc; The above methods leave little room for the other person to find their own response or solution. Instead, ask your teenager what they see as potential problems and what they regard as the best thing to do. Remember that they are young adults and will most likely realise the answers that are most appropriate for them. They may want some guidance but offer it as advice (e.g. 'you will have to make up your own mind but I would...'). Encouraging your teenager to think about the problem and address it themselves will also provide them with greater confidence in dealing with future issues.

    4. 4. "Our young people today seem to love the luxury. They have bad manners and despise authority. They are disrespectful to adults and spend their time wandering in the streets, gossiping among themselves. They are inclined to contradict their parents, monopolize the conversation when they are in the company of other older people, eat voraciously and tyrannize their teachers " Adolescence Socrates - 2500 years ago
    5. 5. “ My life in Sao Paulo is composed of some basic little things - my friends TV-computer (msn sites and “twilight”) - books - school (I spend most of my life there) - mall-cinema-festivals They are simple things that make my life and without which I know I could not live. Normally I go out with my friends (almost always Cris) on Fridays and Saturdays and on Sundays I go out with my parents. Honestly, today I do not spend much time with my 'family' as I used to. I think more and more teenagers are getting away from their parents because their friends have become their second family. And, moreover, this second family often understands us better than our parents do. Our friends listen to our problems and try to help us solve them.” Adolescence Student – 3 weeks ago
    6. 6. Adolescents operate within many different social systems, which both influence them and are, in turn, influenced by them (Bronfenbrenner 1979). These systems include the adolescent’s family, peers, school, extracurricular and community activities, sports teams and clubs, religious institutions, other diverse organizations with which the adolescent interacts, part time work, the community itself, the culture, and even influences from around the world accessed through the Internet and other electronic resources. Each of these social systems exposes the adolescent to both positive and negative influences, potentially increasing or decreasing the adolescent’s risk of alcohol use.
