    i agree. the media gives both positive and negative effects to teenagers. i think what’s important is knowing how to weigh all effects and knowing how to budget our time wisely.

    You have good ideas, but my gosh, have you not looked over it to correct for grammatical errors?

    Take this sentence for instance:

    “Also the edit make up in soap commercials make teenswant to put make up everyday which bad for you skin.”

    Next I’ll highlight the errors and make corrections

    Also(,) “the edit make up” (the “perfect” edited appearances of the models) in soap commercials make(s) “teenswant” (teens want) to put (on) “make up” (make-up) every day(,) which (is) bad for “you” (their) skin.

    And this is just one example. There are many others almost just as bad. Again, your ideas are great, you just need to be more careful of grammatical mistakes.
