The biggest challenge that 8th graders face today is lack of self-esteem.

Self-esteem is the greatest challenge 8th graders face because teens at the age of 13 and 14 have very unstable self-confidence.

Many adolescents take their lives because they feel that they aren't good enough to be in a certain social group or aren't good enough to even show their face.

8th graders, especially girls, have low self-esteem because of social media.  They see the body images of magazines and think they have to look like that, and if they don't then they don't feel confident.
