Developmental theory grouped the changes experienced by teenagers into several groups including emotional, and behavioral. Teenagers are at the phase of their lives where their self identity is paramount. Their self-concept and self-esteem are still being formed which makes them very vulnerable to peer pressure. This leads us to behavioral development. Rebelling against authority can be seen as an action that can gain one acceptance and respect from peers.
The most vivid example of a teenage behavior rebelling against authority was the Columbine High School shooting executed by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. These two teenagers massacred 12 of their peers, and 1 teacher, an authority figure. This situation is also an example peer pressure – the one of them teenagers clearly succumbed to the pressure from the leader of the two and do a terrible and evil act.
