The contents of this document pass through a quick investigation of several leading reasons for violence, namely: emotional problems, which come forward with the arrival of teenage-hood, when the young people react violently, aggressively and angrily to almost anything; the desire to copy-cat, which is connected with teenagers’ love for the world of fantasies and entertainment where they find their idols, who do not behave properly at all times; the urge to do forbidden things, which can also lead to violence; violence is also triggered as a revenge for a previous act of violence of which the teenagers was the victim – the revenge is not necessarily directed only towards the offender; the aggressive communication model within a family often turns into a model for behavior of the children, becomes a communication norm; boredom and tediousness, which are often related to the fact that in puberty youths change their interests or even lose their interests; alcohol and drugs abuse on behalf of teenagers changes their way of thinking, their sensitivity and behavior.
The scrutinized document is interesting from the point of view of the relatively exhaustive analysis of the potential reasons, which lie in the basis of teenage violence. The material however stops at that point and does not propose any variants or options for neutralizing of the listed reasons for violent behavior. Its content should be used as a reference, from which a much more in-depth analysis should be done, leading to proposals for prevention and combating teenage violence.
