Young People & Teenagers
The world can be a vicious place for young people.
Racist, Sexist, Violent Stalkers Terrorize Innocent people Every Single Day.
We are now seeing a new culture of me first – don’t care teenagers that will become the next adult generation?
According to one Magazine, young teens girls, as soon as they put a Selfie or video online receive at least ten inappropriate, upsetting, and downright creepy messages from strange men the same day they first went online. A rise is seen in that youths begin to date as young as ten years old. The media promote this practice as normal — as if it were harmless recreation. The peer pressure to date is real.” This can lead to despair as expectations are not realised or lived up to the hype that it has created in the youth mind.
Understandably, then, if you are not dating someone, you may feel left out. Indeed, you may be teased and ridiculed for not doing so. When teens started getting into trouble, you don’t know who to blame, is it the influence of their favorite celebrity? television shows or foul-mouthed rapper or their friends?
More likely, behaviorS AND attitudes can change – very fast.
Behavior can be traced to the friends the teen hang out with. Adolescents are heavily influenced by the opinions of their peers.
We are now seeing a new culture of me first – don’t care teenagers that will become the next adult generation? This is the sad reality of modernisation. Have we lost the innocence of youth?
Watch your associates.
Question is, do you know that you can accurately predict where you’ll be five years from now?
You can easily know where you’ll be going, what you’ll be doing, and what your income level will be. If you want to know how, the answer is simple: by the company you keep. The people you associate with have a major impact and influence on your personal life. You can tell where most people are going to end up in life simply based on who they hang around. For your long-term success, you simply must choose the right friends. Choose friends with similar values. it’s best to keep core friendships with like-minded people. When you have friends with common goals, you can help each other. Choose friends that stretch, motivate and encourage you.
No one wants a friend that is negative or down all the time. Friends with similar interests simply make life more fun. You can enjoy outings and activities together. Give what you expect to get. Every friendship is a give-and-take. If you expect great friends, you first have to be one yourself. A friend is someone who “sticks closer than a brother or sister”.
What is a true friend, write us – share your views.
Isn’t friendship suppose to be for life. Why is it then that so few of us, have a true friend that stands the test of time. Have you still got your friend that you cultivated from childhood.
In these days of social networks and all types of technology, it is easy to add friends to your social community. But the question could be asked, are they really your friend. If you get to meet some of those people in the flesh, would you still consider keeping them as friends.
Young people. Be careful… take time to cultivate real friendship that is not out to hurt, use or abuse you.
