Hey guys; sorry for writing a depressing blog on new years (For NZ, YEAH FELLOW KIWIS; HAPPY NEW YEARS) but this has been on my mind so much recently as a high school student, i've had this topic haunt me for months now. (Not sure if this belongs in blogs) This blog will be short.
So i'm 17 years old and I want to discuss the negative things that majority of students that I know in my school are doing, to be more specific; underaged drinking, drugs and sexual references. I'll write my personal feelings and thoughts for each one. I'm sorry if anyone got offended for this this is just my personal opinions.
This is a rant (Warning)
After my first year of college, I have started to recognise that people were drinking alcohol. (This is at 14 years old) How is this possible? What kind of unresponsible parents/store clerks sell these things to teenagers? I just don't understand it. There are few negative effects of drinking and drinking at a young age its just worse (Drink driving, irresponsible behavior towards others and their environment, and maybe even breaking a few laws) I want to know the psychological explanation onto why teenagers are doing this. I know that smoking used to be the "cool" thing back then so has that been changed to alcohol? It doesn't even taste that good at this age. And I seem to detest anyone drinking as a teenager (Less than the legal age limit) without clear explanations.
Another one are drugs and smoking. Okay, this one I kind of understand; maybe its to release stress? I'm actually really not sure about this one. Okay, actually; i'll say its okay for weed although I will never do it as there is no proven real consequence to it. Smoking though... Why? This is worse than beer, this literally shortens your life and puts you at a risk of even getting cancer.
Sexual and inappropriate references; okay this one is for the children at ELEMENTARY school. What the fuck? As a local convinent store worker I take upon a lot of elementary school students after school (Theres a school nearby) Unavoidably I hear their conversations and some of them goes like this;
"Saw that hot ass chick on that other road" "YEAH"
"Hey we have a fucking good tv"
I can't help but want to actually hit them some manners and common sense, lol. What has the generation become? What has children become exposed to? In my generations I never knew ANYONE that knows even a single swear word, we pretty much spoke about pokemon and played basketball on the court (Good times ^-^)
One thats really weird is that some of my peers and im sure other students as well talks about porn. What? Its just embarrassing to even listen to and in my life I will never ever discuss the issue.
As a parent for some of you, are you aware of your children doing this and how do you feel about them?
We are the future, but are we being guided wrongly?
Sigh sorry guys; I just wanted to clear some of this out of my head.
