The Letter Every Teenager Wants To Write To Their Parents

If we had our chance we would want to tell our parents this…….

Dear Dad/Mum,

There is a point in our life that we feel like being under the spotlight, that we want to be seen and heard by the world, that we want our talents to be appreciated and there are also times we want to hide and remain in darkness for the rest of our lives.

                Parents do complain that we (teenagers) spend countless hours on our mobile phones and laptops, they say that we are squandering our time – that wouldn’t make us productive, but in – some ways they’re right and some ways wrong (depends on personal point of view). The chances of being productive online are high but also the types of non – developmental materials online are also high. Life is Ironic. You can’t put a rotten tomatoes among good tomatoes and expect it to be better and healthy like the other tomatoes it won’t instead it would contaminate the good ones around and that’s how it the contamination would spread to contaminate the rest of the tomatoes but you can also put a good tomatoes in the mist of the bad one in anticipation for the good and freshness of that tomatoes spread and affect the other bad tomatoes No! that one good one would get contaminated/spoilt by the other bad ones faster, within a snap. No matter how you put the bad tomatoes it always contaminates the good ones, it is inevitable.

                We go online, we want to be responsible, we want to turn out great but sites online have been contaminated by these bad tomatoes, Snapchat has been filled with nudity, Facebook has been filled with nudity pages, Instagram, Twitter and there likes.

                You don’t judge us (teenagers) from afar, you don’t stand at the foot of a mountain to determine how many steps it would take you to climb to its peak. I’m not saying that we would disrespect and talk back to you (parents) because you’ve never lived a 21st Century teenagers’ life before No, of cause you should know better than us, but what I’m saying simply is this: When we miss our steps pulls us back, When we fall pick us up and dust our body, Care, Carter and Love us because if you should lose the teenagers of today there is no future for tomorrow. TRY BEING A 21st CENTURY TEENAGER AND YOU WOULD SEE HOW DIFFICULT IT IS GROWING UP.

Teenagers Life (Part 1)

Teenage stage I do agree is the hardest part of growing up. The life of a teenager is not a play ground; it isn’t like a juggler or a merry-go-round. Teenage stage starts for thirteen till nineteen and within this period choices are made consigning life and lifestyle. In teen-age changes do not occur only physically but mentally….. Scientifically proven that the brain under goes a lot of re-wiring and whatever is taken in at that stage of life is processed easily. I refer to this stage as a very fragile stage; this is the point in time where so many people made and make mistakes, the friends you keep would help build you or help demolish you, the actions you take would determine the outcome of your future; if it is worth it or disappointing.

 

FRIENDS AND COMPANY

 

There’s a saying that goes like this “friendship is not by force it is by choice” there’s also another that goes like this “show me your friend and I would tell you who you are” , the company we keep determines what accompanies us, friendship is the greatest ship but a bad friendship is worse than the titanic. You can have drug addicts as friend and not expect to get involved in drug, you can have thieves, robbers, burglars and expect to turn out responsibly, sooner or later you would join them if you don’t relinquish them from your life… “bad company corrupts good manners” . It doesn’t matter if you come from a Christian home or a religious home, your life is yours and yours alone, your parents can’t live it, your siblings can’t live it. What you do outside is your choice.

A real and good friend is not that one that chooses to fall with you when you are falling; but he/she that holds you and draws you up from falling, a real friend wouldn’t see you cry and cry with you; he/she would help you get better.

 

 

Challenges in this stage of life are at the fullest. In this stage the attraction of opposite sex is highly common; development into adulthood is at its beginning. Being at this stage if you’re a boy there is a tendency to have a girlfriend and if you are a girl there is a tendency to have a boyfriend… but I strong advise that there shouldn’t be any response to this feeling, it is absolutely normal to get attracted but I suggest you try to repeal. Having a relationship in teen age does create a lot of mayhem:

  • LEARNING: It makes the IQ drop, you’ll always be thinking of him or her, it distracts you from your education, it makes you loose focus and balance.
  • ENEMITY: This is hugely because of break-ups, you don’t want to see him or her anymore and most times you end up putting them in your black book.

Teen relationship is something I would advise teenagers should not go into……..

 

EFFECTS OF TECHNOLOGY ON TEENS (THE INTERNET)

Everything that has an advantage has a disadvantage. Coming to the 21st century where our cars are keyless, our cooking no longer require flames, our phones are wireless its like virtual everything contains a touch of modern technology.

 

NEGATIVE EFFECTS:

The internet is a very powerful tool if use both ways bad or good, it has virtual everything you need and is easily accessible from any part of the world. What we do with it and how we use it is very important. Today in the modern world where internet is accessible to anybody it has become a very dangerous material, the sites are getting corrupt. Due to free access it has began to destroy the life of teens; Pornographic view: 420 million web pages are dedicated to porn, not to speak of the snap chats with the nudes of over 140 characters. Free access to these views has made a lot o teens sex addicts at a very young age, they’ve lost their value to life, they’re school drop-out. Social media effect: Do you know an average person spend 4years of his/her life looking down on his/her phone. But I’d say that you to be then, since twitter, Skype, whatsapp, instagram came into existence, these social media platforms have stolen the time of lots of teens. Teenagers are so interested in the numbers of followers they have, what’s trending on social media, who’s dating who and who broke up with who, when instagram came selfy pictures came that it has gotten to an extent we have selfy sticks. I have heard about a lot of teenagers who were knocked down on the road because they were faced down to their phones……..
