Neither of my parents have heard of the movie “Rebel Without A Cause”, but when I explained some of the teenage stereotypes presented by the movie, they agreed that most of them are probably exaggerated. They told me that they have heard of knife fights and games of ‘chicken’, but have never actually witnessed them. I have heard of similar things from friends in my generation, but I have also never witnessed them. Perhaps these extravagant displays of bravery are just tall tales passed between generations of teenagers. When I told my parents about the violent outbursts of the teenagers in the movie “Rebel Without A Cause”, they shook their head and explained that the situation was caused by a lack of discipline.
