- Program Description
The problem with teenagers today is that they are lonely. At at time when dual-career and single-parent families are the norm, many teenagers return from school to empty houses. BODYWATCH looks at how a rapidly-changing world is affecting our young adults and examines research showing that what is considered deviant and immature behavior is simply the result of teenagers being ignored. The program suggests that eating disorders, drug use and the new teen obsession with jobs are reactions to feeling lonely and an attempt to escape from reality.
