These days, many teenagers face various problems such as depression, peer pressure, and so on. Some resort to doing certain things to make themselves feel better. Sometimes, what they do may ruin their lives and the teenagers would end up miserable. So, what problems do teenagers face these days? Are these problems serious?
One of the main problems faces by most teenagers is stress. Stress can be brought about by pressure from families. In some families, parents would be pushing their children to do very well in their studies. They are give almost '24-hours' tuition and do not have enough time to relax or spend time with their friends. Some of these teenagers would feel very depressed and might run away from home, or in even worse cases, commit suicide.
Another common problem faced by teenagers is mixing around with bad company. This usually happens when parents are busy with their work and do not spend time with their kids. Having friends are fine; however, the type of friends is what matters. Most of the time, teenagers are not aware of the people that they mix with, and may fall into bad company. They follow their friends’ bad habits and may even start taking drugs or smoking. Once these teens are hooked into drugs, they would need money and they would resort to stealing. This would terribly affect their lives and their studies.
Lastly, some teenagers may have underage sex. When a boy meets a girl, they may develop love at first sight. It is fine to go on a date with her. However, sometimes the teenagers may go too far and unknowingly, result in pregnancy. Sometimes, their parents may not forgive them and the teenagers have to survive on their own. The teenagers would not have enough money to support themselves and their studies would also be affected. Their life would be in total mess.
Hence, I feel that these problems are very serious as these problems affect the teenagers’ lives in many terrible ways. Some teenagers commit suicide because to too much stress, take drugs to feel relieved or sometimes do illegal activities because of pressure from bad friends. Teenagers should have a mind of their own and should know what is right and what is wrong.
