What is Kutuhal “Kutuhal” means curiosity which is commonly observed in the teenagers as they grow physically, mentally and emotionally. At this age if they don't get proper guidance and knowledge along with academic study they may choose wrong track of life or trapped into misbelief and misconception. Our experience shows, because of competition, Fly. Pressure, Peer pressure many time youth doesn’t cop up with reality. and this age they need proper guidance.
TOPICS TO BE COVERED
Through this activity we can approach minimum 20,000 youth at Ahemdabad in a year.
Adolescent Age Values Stress Management Addiction Vocational guidance Sex Life Education
Adolescent Development Each teenager is an individual with a unique personality and special interests, likes and dislikes. In general, however, there is a series of developmental tasks that everyone faces during the adolescent years.
A teenager’s development can be divided into three stages - early, middle and late adolescence.
How does one define values or a value system? A value could be defined as a belief or attitude that you hold close; something that you want to keep as a standard for judging yourself and the rest of the world. It is the basis for your sense of right and wrong, good or bad. There are many values and any combination of these separate values will form a person’s value system. To figure out yours, you must do a lot of soul-searching, ask yourself questions about what really matters to you and what you deeply believe in, or what are the issues that you are not willing to compromise on – that will be your unique set of values.
Stress and anxiety in children and teenagers are just as prevalent as in adults. Stressed out and negligent parents, high expectations in academic or other performances, abused or deprived childhood, growing up tensions and demand for familial responsibility are the main causes of childhood and teen stress. Parents, who are not emotionally available for their children or lack positive coping mechanisms themselves, often spur stress in their offspring. Stressed children show signs of emotional disabilities, aggressive behavior, shyness, social phobia and often lack interest in otherwise enjoyable activities. Research tells us that children, who are forced to live on prematurely adult levels, sometimes become oppositional to following the parents` rules (or those of society). Such children tend to respond to stressors with aggression and indignation. Many teenagers tend to become nonconformists and fall prey to teenage depression in response to a variety of growing up anxieties. However, stress induced fears and anxiety in children adversely affect children`s performances at various levels.
Children start on drugs for a number of reasons, from curiosity, recreation to the need to cope with stress but drug abuse and addiction lead to a complex set of social, medical and economic problems with serious implications.
Some substances present in easily available products like cough syrups, pain relief ointments, glue, paint, gasoline and cleaning fluids are directly toxic and often abused by children. Therefore Health education and awareness of the public in general and of the youngsters at school is essential.
Why Vocational guidance? Youth Aspiration Index study (2006) has found that the majority of today's teenagers would prefer to take a job that gives them satisfaction and makes them happy rather than a job with a larger salary.
Even more, it was found that almost 90% of teens today expect to be happy in their future careers. To keep these admirable expectations alive in your teenager, discuss with them their own thoughts on work and be ready to give them some sound, and inspirational, advice and support.
Sex Life Education
What is sex education? Sex education, which is sometimes called sexuality education or sex and relationships education, is the process of acquiring information and forming attitudes and beliefs about sex, sexual identity, relationships and intimacy. Sex education is also about developing young people's skills so that they make informed choices about their behavior, and feel confident and competent about acting on these choices. It is widely accepted that young people have a right to sex education. This is because it is a means by which they are helped to protect themselves against abuse, exploitation, unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases and HIV and AIDS. It is also argued that providing sex education helps to meet young people’s rights to information about matters that affect them, their right to have their needs met and to help them enjoy their sexuality and the relationships that they form. Sex education can take place in school.
