Early sexual activity and teen pregnancy are major issues facing teen girls. However most often the root of these problems is that a lot of girls develop a low self-esteem. If a girl sees herself as worthless or feels bad about herself, how can she stand up for herself and make good decisions? In the media and even through peers, girls are taught that they are supposed to be just pretty faces and nothing else. Low self-esteem causes girls to stop believing in themselves. This is why i think low self-esteem is an issue people should pay more attention to.
