Because of the impact of the society and parents plus the evolution of new technologies, young people are less and less able to communicate face to face. Young people are losing the ability to socialize face to face because of parents and society. A few decades ago, parents and the society used to be more flexible about freedom. Nowadays, a lot of parents choose to “shortened the leash on their kids” by limiting their independence because they feel that it is the best way to protect their children from what is happening in the outside world such as child-abduction for example. Not only are parents stricter, but the actual society as well.
As adults we are simply too busy with other things to really apprehend the beauty of life. Changes may either be exciting or not a big deal at all; however, change is mainly appreciated because it always ends up for the better. There are many issues that face today's teenagers. Probably one of the most common is the issue of individualism or identity. The teenage years harbor some of the most confusing and impressionable years in the life of any human being.
I’ve learnt that these children do not have patience or respect, while I was trying to teach they a story they were squirming round like pigs. I’ve also learnt to not prejudice about the different type of people in this town, and that some folks can’t afford to even have any lunch! Students in my class such as Scout show courage though, I know I must have been intimidating just after I told her off and yet she still came and told me about how I shouldn’t mess with Walter cause he was a Cunningham. My day has been full of experiences Prue, that I’m sure I won’t forget anytime soon. First of all, I had
Therefore, parents should allow their teenagers some room to make mistakes as all mistakes contain seeds of learning (Dweck). It is only by learning from past mistakes that teenagers will not continue to repeat them, so as long as the parents can see that their teenager is taking responsibility of their mistakes then there is no need for them to step in and interfere. Adults also think that they have ‘reared’ their children instead of raising them to become an independent person. On the same token, they want them to listen and obey to their words as a way of repaying their efforts to raise them up into a decent human being. For instance, parents strain their children to become an astronaut meanwhile their children want to become a doctor.
“Kids of today are not what they used to be long ago!”For some reason everywhere I go I keep hearing old people saying this to each other.Now they have a point because from stories I’ve heard from long ago parents only had to look at their kids and the kids understood right from wrong.Nowadays parents believe children need strict rules and curfews to keep them in order.I for one totally agree with that condition. Every day on the news we hear about what is happening to the nation’s youths.It is so saddening to read or see everyday children getting in accidents,murder,underage sex ,rape or even going missing never to return home.I would never like for something like that to happen to me or anyone I’m close to.With strict rules, parents would have a better idea of where their children are and help them to keep out of trouble. Most accidents happen between the hours of 12 am to 5 am and most of the time the drivers are teenagers.These teenagers go out drinking and liming not caring that they have to get behind wheels later on to drive home.They end up putting theirs as well as others lives at risk.At these gatherings the rest of the shenanigans occur.Now if I have a curfew and I know I have a certain time to be home by, of course I would not drink to an extent that is too much because I know my parents will be waiting up for me. By having a curfew to be home by it does not mean that parents want to rule their children,it just means that they care for us and only want whats best for us.Some girl children are out all night and their parents don’t even know where to look for them.This ends up in all sorts of tragedies.Imagine teenage pregnancy could be prevented if some strict measures are put into effect.That alone could change a child’s entire life. So if anyone asked me if I would have any problem having a curfew to go by I would stand proud and
Even though the system has made a great deal of changes, it has not stopped the problems just slow them down. There is still poverty, bulling and racism, not just in the schools; technology has made bulling possible, and to experience racism through computers, and cell phone. This is leading to problems that are more serious for some teenagers, even death. Some teenagers get to the point to where they cannot handle being bullied, picked on and judge for their race, it is too much for one person to deal with, the only way out to take their lives. An experience no parents want to see their child go through or experience the loss of their child.
Once they have imbibed something negative, it becomes almost impossible to change them and they don’t just imbibe, they often also go ahead to ‘innocently’ experiment, destroying their lives and those of their friends in the process. What are the steps to be taken to control adolescence behavior problems? Establish rules and consequences: At a time when your child is calm, explain that there’s nothing wrong with feeling anger, but there are unacceptable ways of expressing it. If your teen lashes out, for example, he or she will have to face the consequences such as loss of privileges. Manage your own anger: You can’t help your teen if you lose your temper as well.
Nowadays, most teenagers complain that their parents are too strict, overprotective or too old-fashioned. Parents, on the other hand, think that they must do everything to protect their children. There are many reasons why parents are overprotective. Firstly, it is undeniable that there are many reports in the newspapers about teenagers getting involved in criminal activities such as robberies and crimes. As a parent, one definitely does not want their own children to be criminals.
We are all aware of teenagers, those people in transition from childhood to adulthood, looked down upon by parents as little children and held in the highest esteem by themselves as young adults. Every age group believes it has got more problems than others, yet despite this most insist that life as a teenager is the best part of a lifetime. However, others, including most teenagers, beg to differ. At school, teens are constantly harassed with work on all topics. Studying and revision is done day in and day out, while the tests themselves are on their mind all the time.
While not all teenagers do such things, many sit on their backside all day long and wait for the world to change, others are making sure that we don’t end up like future generations, fighting over why the country is in such a mess instead of doing something about it. People say that teenagers see the world as black and white, right and wrong. While adults have a more vague idea of right and wrong as they get older. Maybe the fact that we don’t have as much life experience is a good thing. We are unaware of outside dangers that teachers can’t teach in school.
