What Are The Most Important Problems in Teens Lives?

There are a lot of problems that teens have to face these days and unfortunately these problems are growing everyday. Addiction is one of the most important problems.

Addiction is not just limited to drugs. There are many other addictions that can also be dangerous. For example computer games and internet addiction is a big problem now and is becoming even bigger. Teens feel alone at home and family. They look for something attractive that pleases them. They don’t get enough attention from parents. They were not used to get enough attention when they were kids. But when they were kids there were a lot of childish things that could make them busy and temporarily happy. But when they reach 14, those things can not attract them anymore. They still suffer from lacking of attention and the things that could be a relief for them, have lost their attraction. So they look for new things. Definitely these new things can not be found in family. They are already disappointed about family.

Computer and internet are two attractive things for them. They are still better than drugs and sex, but they are also harmful. The only thing they do for teens is that they help them to forget the real world and enjoy the fantasy they find in computer and electronic games. This will develop an addiction which is not as hazardous as drug addiction of course, but it is harmful. It causes many mental and physical damages. It prevents our teens from being focused enough on their education and other important aspects of life. Someone who is addicted to computer, games or internet, doesn’t like to do anything else. He/she has no interest in reading any book or having any other activity.

Alcohol is another important problem. It is one of the most dangerous addictions and almost the hardest to get rid of. Alcohol addiction age is going lower and lower. Although there are different kinds of addictions, but almost all of them are from the same roots. The most important reason of all kinds of addictions is family. If we want to resolve the addiction problems in teenagers and so adults, we have to work on families. But how?

Parents should be trained and educated about these things. They should know that all of these problems comes because of lack of attention from one or both parents. One hour attention to children and teens saves hundreds of hours of therapy in future. It prevents a lot of problems that addiction is only one of them. Attention, Attention, Attention!
