Positive message for TEENS

Teenagers can learn a lot about the things they go through and the consequences. It comes on very late in the evening so it's not geared towards young children under 12. It's positve and talks about the break through from drug addiction, poverty and the struggle for a better life. It also speaks about jail, the unhappiness of it and the way it effects your life and your family. Young boys can really learn about choosing the wrong path and how their life will spiral down-hill in the event of doing so.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much swearing
