What traits would you want your younger generations to nurture?
Well, the list won’t end, to be honest.
There are things that we as kids enjoyed, which I still do.
But kids and teens of today are living a life of hustle.
Some don’t like being a teenager and wish to become adults just after high school.
And some adults want to reverse back the process.
It’s too confusing for teens about which trend to follow. They are mostly concerned about the things giving them instant popularity.
To make their problem resolve, I have come up with some ideas that I want the younger generations to follow.
Here goes the list:
Pieces of advice for today’s teens:
1. There is no need to rush for growth:
The teenage age is such a time, where people hustle at each and everything. They want to be treated as adults. They demand more freedom, more options, more entertainment like an adult would have. They like to wear more mature clothes, mature movies, and do matured things.
They want to make the growing-up process much faster. But they need to understand that this isn’t the way it works. No one can control time. When the right time comes, it will occur.
Childhood is the best period of one’s life. In all efforts, you’ll have to embrace your childhood as long as you can, because this is the time when one lives the best days of life. So carefree, no tensions and so many cuddles.
Just tell me, will you get more love when you grow up and become an adult than you get now?
2. Do not make plans for your future just right now:
This is the best part of your life. Enjoy it to the fullest. Don’t waste this time creating unrealistic plans for your future just right now. You might think of your passion to follow or your academic choices. People in their teenage years get confused and make poor decisions about themselves. You have not gathered any experience till now, so how do you know which way to choose?
The advice I want to give in this respect is that you shouldn’t put particular time frames on significant matters in your life. Mat it be your career improvement, love life, house buying purposes, or anything else, you should know that life is inconstant and whatever resolution you will take now, might not always work.
3. Friends are not your whole life:
No, i.m not asking you to disbelieve in friendship. What i/m saying is a very few of your big friend circles are going to be in touch with you as you grow. The circle will keep on getting smaller.
So choose your friends wisely.
4. Less use of gadgets will give you self-time:
Today’s teens are much more dependent on devices and media. Anything which is not trendy isn’t good enough for them. Although it helps to build a strong network of communication, it leaves an impact on their lives, mostly negative. Their mental health is also getting affected by electronic devices.
The more one uses gadgets the less they get time for themselves.
These bad impacts of social media platforms are slowly eating away young minds.
