While many year-olds are looking forward to a bright future beyond high school, others are terrified about entering the adult world. Even parents may find that raising a year-old can be a little scary. For instance, you may wonder if you have taught your teen everything they're going to need to know to become a responsible adult. To be sure, think about their development and assist them accordingly to make sure they are prepared for the real world. They also may grow more facial and underarm hair and their voices may continue to deepen as well. Key Milestones.

Dundee teen, 17, accused of ramming police car during alleged A90 joyride
A teenager accused of ramming a police car and seriously injuring three children during an alleged Tayside joyride has been fully committed for trial. The year-old was granted bail at Perth Sheriff Court on Wednesday after making a second appearance in private via a video link. The boy is alleged to have deliberately rammed a police car before overturning and causing serious injury to his three year-old passengers. The youth, who cannot be identified because of his age, is alleged to have been on bail while joyriding in an uninsured car on February 20 this year. The teenager, from Dundee, is alleged to have driven a year-old Vauxhall Corsa dangerously on a number of roads in and around Perth before crashing on the A90 near St Madoes.

Police said the year-old youth was shot in the chest near a recreation center in the Kingsessing neighborhood of southwest Philadelphia at about 8 p. He died less than a half-hour later at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. The shooting occurred almost exactly 24 hours after year-old Kahree Simmons was shot and killed at a west Philadelphia recreation center.
The survey also finds there is no clear consensus among teens about the effect that social media has on the lives of young people today. The social media landscape in which teens reside looks markedly different than it did as recently as three years ago. In , three online platforms other than Facebook — YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat — are used by sizable majorities of this age group. The shares of teens who use Twitter and Tumblr are largely comparable to the shares who did so in the survey. For the most part, teens tend to use similar platforms regardless of their demographic characteristics, but there are exceptions.
