PROBLEMS TEENAGERS FACE TODAY Good morning!!

I have gathered up with all of you today to discuss a problem which is present in our life. All of you got children who are in the age of teen aging. My is mainly about the problems that the teenagers may face today. All teenagers may get easily frustrated easily and this frustration would cause anger. I have asked several teenagers about their problems and found that the most available problems are the limited freedom and the over protectiveness by their parents. The freedom. The freedom for teenagers is mostly limited as their parents would be scared that they would themselves to the wrong way, but the freedom should not be unlimited. Parents should let their children to have freedom but with some rules which will never bring the thoughts of being bad at any time. The over protectiveness. The over protectiveness which is by parents to their children would make really frustrated a lot. Teenagers hate when they are being treated as Childs when they know they are grown-ups now. They hate when their parents catch their hands in a crowd and other treatments like children. There are other teenage problems too, like being wrong blaming by teachers in school and lack of attention by parents. Lack of attention. If there is one thing everybody loves especially teenagers is attention. Nobody likes to be neglected. But because that parents always have the desire to make money, a lot of parents do not give attention for their children. Parents rather buy video games, toys and other things they feel the child needs. But the truth is that the teenager wants his or her parent to be there for him. So please every one of you try to be close to your child and know his/her problems to solve them and reduce the number of problems they got and thank you.

Teenagers face many problems such as becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol, being influenced negatively by their peers, self-image and weight, or even arguments with their parents. Drugs between teenagers is one of the most serious problems, because it causes a change in the behavior of any teenager and a physical change too. Most of the teenagers use alcoholic drinks as a way to escape from their problems. Teenagers might also use them because of their friend's influence. Poor teenagers might use them too, to forget their cold body and hunger. Alcoholism is a society's sickness that affects all people, including teenagers and adults. It is considered as a modern way to have fun. Some teens drink alcohol so they can become popular and well-known in their school. People who drink alcohol think that they can forget their problems and travel far away from reality. I think that drinking alcohol is extremely dreadful because it can turn into a long lasting addiction that can harm you psychologically and physically. In other words, when a person drinks, he/she may lose his/her 5 senses, and won't be able to think. Most teenagers agree that they will follow a peer's decision rather than their parents'. Peers are more influential in a teen's life and tend to have more power than parents. Peer pressure has always been present and will also always be present. It is not a disease or a crime, it is an influence; either a negative or a positive one. Negative peer pressure is an influence put on a person to do something wrong, or something the person doesn't want to do. This may be stealing, taking drugs, or other dangerous...
