Each teenager would like to have a peaceful life where there is no need to work to earn some money and just study to find new knowledge. But today, although living in kaleidoscopic Malaysia, teenagers still have problems. Teenagers are teenagers. They cannot handle their problems themselves. They have no backbone to face the problems in their life. So, what are the problems that burden the teenagers?
The main problem that teenagers face today is coming from their home. Even though only some teenagers who are having this problem, it has to be thwarted. Their home is full of stress. Parents are always squabbling about something. Their siblings also make a bicker. This can make teenagers feel so uneasy. Sometimes, they have to face the music from their parents' action. The uneasy feeling make teenagers unable to focus on their studies. Their results go down badly and they feel moody everyday. So, parents and siblings at home must take action quickly so that this problem can be solved. Then, the teenagers will gain their spirit to be triumphant in their studies.
Furthermore, teenagers have bad attitude that they easily get negative influence from their friends. When they have friends, they might follow their friends' attitude. If they have a good friend, it would be nice but if they have a bad friend, it would change their attitude to become mischievous teenagers. Although this is a difficult-to-solve problem, we can still keep our fingers crossed and make them turn a new leaf. We should tell teenagers to let the cat out of the bag and solve it properly. It can be used to reduce the problems that burden teenagers lately.
In addition, teenagers today love to do bad things. If we ask them the reason why they like to do those things, some teenagers may reply that they feel ecstatic doing a bad job that disturbs somebody else. Actually, it is just a flimsy excuse. They like to burn their fingers and get into hot water. It does not give any advantage if they still do the bad thing. Usually they are involved in vandalism and gangsterism. They have to prevent themselves from this problem. Rome wasn't built in one day. They have to try again and again to release themselves from this problem because where there's a will, there's a way.
As a result, the problems that burden teenagers can be solved sooner or later. Parents including the community must see eye to eye to lend their hands to the teenagers to solve the problems. The teenagers who are free from problems and stress can focus a hundred percent on their studies. They can have their success in their studies and have a brain wave in their life. Teenagers without problems will build a harmonious family and live in a peaceful life.
