Do you guys know what is mean by teenagers? Today I would like to give a speech about teenagers. Teenager is a person between the ages thirteen to nineteen years old. Besides, Teenager is also known as an adolescent. There is always a paradox inherent in human to yearn for teenage years when they are adults, but yet to seek to be grownups when they are children. The teenage years ranging from thirteen years to nineteen years old are crucial in affecting one’s physical, social, intellectual and emotional development.
Teenage years are often reffered to as the formative years of one’s life where important values, principles, religious belief and responsibilities are inculcated. Studies have shown that teenagers from broken homes are more likely to engage in delinquency and subsequently lead to problems adapting to society. Furthermore, teenagers nowadays are really freedom. Because of the freedom they like to do what they want. They like to try new things to their selves. Growing up is hard enough for a child without morality values.
The drive for success by parents towards their teenage children must be tempered with some understanding that teenage years are also a time for healthy fun and learning. As teenagers, the best thing that we can do is that we can enjoy and have full time of happiness. We don’t have to think about money and other things. All we have to think is about ourselves and our studies. Recently, we can see many teenagers grow in the world of entertainment and sports. The good things also come to the bad things.
Nowadays, teenagers lack of moral values and self-discipline. In the past, majority of the youths then learnt respect, courtesy, honesty and righteousness from a young age, and had enough self-discipline to hold to these values. However, these moral values and self-discipline are slowly diminishing over the years. The listed values have slowly faded away, as they mean little to these adolescents, as moral values and self-discipline are on the verge of disappearing.
Even the simplest of morals like, respect, care and consideration are slowly fading away over the years. Teenagers have great creative powers. Their mind is like a fertile bedrock for innovative concepts. They should venture into optimistic improvement. They should not stagnate or fall into bad companies or societies and influences but constantly progress for the better. Therefore teenagers should be careful for their peer groups. For the conclusion, there are many good and bad things to be teenagers nowadays.
All is in our hand to make us be good teenagers or bad teenagers. We just have to think about what the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia have told, “There is a very big role that every teenager has which is there are the apprentice of the future. Without them, there is no replacement for the senior to administer to the country”. This shows the responsibility of teenagers to the country is very huge. Therefore, we have to show to the other people with good manners as administer of the country.
