I saw this and immediately thought that this isn't the order I would have put my own concerns in. I know the concerns are different for everyone but was wondering how other people would order this list. What would your top 3 be?

"Here are their top 10 concerns and the percentage of participants rating each concern as a "big problem." Participants could use the "big problem" rating more than once."

1. Smoking: 40%

2. Teen drug abuse: 39%

3. Childhood obesity: 34%

4. Teen alcohol abuse: 33%

5. Driving accidents: 29%

6. Teen pregnancy: 28%

7. Internet safety: 26%

8. School violence: 24%

9. Sexually transmitted infection: 24%

10. Abuse and neglect: 22%

My top 3 are alcohol abuse, drug abuse and internet safety. Thought internet safety would actually be a lot higher considering the amount of teens using the internet and the frightening statistics I have read on the NetSmartz411 site about internet predators contacting and meeting teens. Everything in the list concerns me, I just thought the order would be different, but again, that is just me.
