Everybody says youth is probably the best time of your life, that being young means romance, love, new discoveries and so on. But it is also the most difficult time because you have to make some very important decisions which will influence all your future life.
Things are not easy nowadays for adults, but for teenagers who have to find their own place in society, it's very difficult. It is necessary not only to adapt to your society, but also to be confident about yourself in five, ten or twenty years time.
For your future it is important to have a good job. And to get a really good job you have to be well-educated. Every girl or boy leaving secondary school should choose a higher education institution or, if he or she doesn't want to study any more, choose a job. When planning your future you have to think about the possibility of finding a job in future.
But even if you are studying, you need some money of your own. Your parents probably will provide you with home, food and necessary clothes, but you will have your own tastes, and your parents won't pay for them. To pay for extra clothes, tapes, books, things necessary for your hobbies, you have to work, and in our country it is very difficult for a teenager to find a job without any qualification. You're lucky if you can do something that others can't; for example, if you're good at Maths or English, you can give lessons.
Emotional problems for young people are more difficult than financial ones. The typical teenager problem is that «nobody understands me». The parents often continue to treat their teenage children as if they were infant, when they probably consider themselves to be grown up.
Often teenagers don’t tell parents about their problems. So they have some problems with parents.
Teenager’s communication with parents is getting harder when parents don’t realize that the child grew up and they should chat with him in a different way.
Parents don’t consider teenager`s problems important. As the result there isn’t understanding and respect between parents and their children.
Children want parents to pay attention to them. So sometimes they behave defiantly.
Often teenagers want independence from their parents and make decisions independently, but at the same time they don’t have enough experience.
It has always been a problem but each generation becomes more difficult than the previous. Teenagers think that they are old enough to have their own opinion, while their parents don’t take their opinion into account.
Adults should try to give more attention to their children especially at such a difficult age. Teenagers also need more freedom of choice and less pressure. They are the future of our country and a lot depends on what kind of people they will become.
The problem of drugs is also actual at this age. Many teenagers suffer from drug addiction. It often leads to health problems and serious consequences. Other problem includes smoking and drinking alcohol.
Youth is also the time to meet your first love. Of course it is wonderful, but, as it is widely known that first love is unhappy, it also increases young people's problems.
Even friends cannot always stay friends. When young people begin to understand themselves a little bit better, old friends sometimes just grow apart.
So, it is very difficult to be young nowadays, as, indeed, it always was. But you can be young only once, and some wonderful things can happen only when you're young. So, it is better to enjoy youth while it lasts.
