Maybe you've already noticed it. Look anywhere - the nearest mall food court, public streets, the skating rink, the shore, parks - and you are sure to find packs of teenage Barbies all dolled up in cleavage-baring tops, micro-minis, midriffs, Lycra pants, tights, bustiers and cat suits. To complete this baby bimbo look, these 13-, 14-, 15-, 16- and 17-year-old girls pile on the makeup and the hair mousse. This seems much worse than the Madonna tart rage, which mainly involved lace and jeans.

My favorite welfare proposal of the moment comes with a prayer that it will prevent pregnancies. The theory is that if the government denies cash benefits to a minor mother, it will give her an economic reason to say "no. " Thus will male sexual behavior be controlled. But in real life, as opposed to think tanks and hearing rooms, the picture is a little different. In real life, three-quarters of the girls who have sex before they are 14 say they were coerced. In real life, two out every three teen-age mothers are impregnated by a man over 20. In real life, 400 teen-agers are impregnated by men over 25 every day. And in real life, 30 percent of the 15-year-old mothers have partners at least six years older.

Some bad ideas just won't die, and a rural Maryland county health officer has resuscitated one of the worst. John A. Grant wants to pay teenage girls $30 a month if they avoid pregnancy. The Caroline County pediatrician says his office has tried dispensing birth-control devices and advice, and it hasn't worked. Now he's ready to try that great American persuader: money. At least initially, his proposal would cover only girls who have had at least one pregnancy and are therefore statistically at risk of future pregnancies, at a staggering cost to the county.

Mood swings with the explosive shift of tectonic plates. Relationships tethered to the telephone. A fixation with fashion, a preoccupation with personal appearance. Self-image that moves in two directions - plummet and drop. Age on the cusp of teenagerness in a new world that includes Mommy and cute boys. Does the description - or part of it - fit your daughter? A sister? A grandchild? Clearly, most young teenagers - girls and boys - become old teenagers and young adults without meeting catastrophe.

The number of teenage girls in the United States vaccinated against human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted infection that can cause cervical cancer, has not risen, though the shot can dramatically reduce the risk of the virus. Vaccinations among 13- to 17-year-old girls remained unchanged last year from 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fifty-four percent of the teenagers received one dose of HPV vaccine and 33 percent got all three prescribed doses, the CDC reported.

More than seven months since he was nearly killed by a hit-and-run driver, 17-year-old David Silva lay Wednesday in a hospital bed set up in his family's dining room in Tacony, where a nurse makes sure he doesn't rip out the tube that helps him breathe. He reached his left arm over his head and pulled open his right eyelid, watching as a reporter entered the room. At his mother's instruction, he waved. "I know my son's still there," Dorothy Robbins said. But "with brain injuries, there's really nothing they can tell you. " Though David is making progress, Robbins doesn't know how long it could take her son, who is semiconscious and cannot speak, to recover.

It has been followed by an outpouring of support for a girl who earned the enmity of the Taliban for publicizing their acts and speaking about the importance of education for girls.

K-Stew, whose romance with Twilight costar Robert Pattinson has helped us keep at bay the horrors of a world engulfed in poverty, war, and famine, admitted this week that she had engaged in what she called a "momentary indiscretion" with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. The fallout has been shocking: Fans, for the most part teenage girls, have unleashed a fury of disappointment and outrage, a wave of hysteria not seen since Sigmund Freud set up shop in Vienna.
