Understanding Teen Boys as a Teenage Girl Understanding Teen Boys as a Parent Managing Differences and Conflicts Community Q&A Boys go through a number of changes during their teenage years, which can make them behave in unusual ways.
Whether you're a parent or a teen yourself, you may want to better understand teenage boys.
But if these teens are having sex, and you live in a state where prosecutors aggressively enforce the law, it’s possible that your son could be charged with statutory rape.
Take, for example, the widely publicized case of Marcus Dwayne Dixon, an 18-year-old high school honor student and star football player who had sex with a 15-year-old female classmate.
She claimed it was rape, he claimed it was consensual, and a jury acquitted him of the charges.
However, because of their age difference, the jury still found Dixon guilty of statutory rape and aggravated child molestation, and sentenced him to a mandatory 10 years in prison under Georgia law.
A two-year age difference isn’t particularly alarming, and dating is fairly standard at that age.‘We tend to think of age only in time, but I don’t think it has much to do with time at all; there’s a whole load of other things,’ he says.‘I’ve met 16-year-olds who are old and 90-year-olds who are young. Yes, I’m a grandfather, but in some ways I feel the same as when I was younger.’Physically, Roger is in incredible shape with a full head of hair and a physique you wouldn’t mess with.But instead of leading the singer gently into retirement (with a fortune estimated to be £32 million he hardly needs the money) he’s working harder than ever.‘I have deliberately kept singing because I have to at my age,’ he says. I enjoy singing; being in touch with something that is inside of me.’But as he tours the country with his Tommy Reborn show, 40 years after he first sang its lyrics, and then moves on to America where The Who have an even bigger following, he is his band’s sole emissary.
