Dear Student,

Hello and thank you for using BrainMass. As always, this solution is meant to get you started. This is an evaluative assignment which means that you have to give your own opinion of the impact media has on teens. How will you do this? It's best to have a structure. I suggest:

1. Media & Adolescents - why is this important?
2. Topics in discussion in the media that has great impact
3. Cognitive, Social & Emotional Impact

Obviously, you can only discuss certain elements as your answer will be limited in that it cannot be a lengthy paper, just a short discussion. But as long as you touch in relevant elements, that should be enough. I have listed resources that you can use to further explore this solution. Good luck with your studies.
