As adolescents, young adults, and adults we need to be more conscious of the impact we have on the youth. We need to take the proper steps to ensure they are being instilled with the right values, morals, and principles. Please do not mislead or manipulate a child’s mind with lies and deception. The minds of the youth are very impressionable and, whether you know it or not, your example matters. They see us. How we act, how we think, how we talk, what we believe, and so on. We need to be aware of this. Teach them the value of knowledge and acquiring knowledge, teach them to be disciplined, always tell them the truth, teach them the importance of exercise and having a healthy diet, share some of your wisdom with them while they’re young, teach them to have integrity, to be not only respectful but respectable, to always uphold and stick to a code of ethics, and the list goes on. We have to play and maintain a strong role in the youth’s lives because nowadays so many kids are being raised by the TV, Internet, and video games and we all know the type of stuff the media tries to feed to us. I’m currently 20 years old and am making the transition from adolescence into adulthood so I say all this not to judge anybody but because this is what I, and many others in my generation, lacked and it will continue to be that way if we don’t take notice . It’s time for a change. Peace.
The Children ARE The Future
