Recent figures show an increase in violent crime among youngsters under the age of 18. Some psychologists claim that the basic reason for this is that children these days are not getting the social and emotional learning they need from parents and teachers
Youth Wrong Path
Youths are the building blocks of any developing nation. However, recently it is observed that infants are committing many crimes. Psychology professionals claim that it is due to the lack of parenting and teaching effect. In my opinion, I completely agree with the argument and I will explain this in my essay.
Firstly, Parents are so busy in their life today that they are not giving focus on their children. This is because, they have found the alternative for parenting in the form of day care and due to this, the children's are not getting proper care and etiquettes when they are growing up. As a result, they didn't attach much with their parents and comes in the contacts of cheap people, who do a crime like pick pocketing, bullying people for money, which leads them to commit crimes too. For instance, children's of both working parents are less groomed than comparing to those who have their single parent working. This problem can be resolved if one of the members in families takes responsibility to take care of their child and keep an eye on their activities.
Secondly, Teachers also plays a vital role in grooming up children. Nevertheless, they also seem to do teaching just for sake of job. Therefore, students are not getting the proper knowledge and guidance which will help them to build a prosperous career. As a consequence of this, they are bunking schools and making contacts with the people who encourage them to do antisocial activities which are not only harmful to the society but also for the future of that individual. For example, In Pakistan, many children are quitting schools and getting trained in ISIS camps which lead them to become a Terrorist. And To prevent the youths from deviating their paths, teachers should guide them and teach them the knowledge which is helpful in growing them up.
In conclusion, it is undeniable that today youths are following the wrong path due to lack of parenting and teaching. However, these problems are not insurmountable strict steps from their guardians and mentors can help them to protect their future.
