TOP 10 CHALLENGES THAT THE YOUTH OF TODAY FACES – FINAL

These are probably the most difficult to overcome. INADEQUATE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES which in turn could lead to POVERTY and lastly JUVENILE DELINQUENCY.

Read more on these challenges @ https://zurl.co/YOCg

SO WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS?
+TEACH WORK MANAGEMENT SKILLS. Teach your teen some basic ways to manage tasks, such as making lists or breaking larger tasks into smaller ones and doing one piece at a time.
+TEACH ENTREPRENEURSHIP – (Jobs are no longer guaranteed)
- Help your child set effective goals.
- Teach your kids financial literacy.
- Let children solve their own problems.
- Foster creativity.
- Get kids involved in the community.
- Find “learning lessons” in adversities.
- Brainstorm business ideas
+DO NOT try to solve your teenager’s problems. As a parent, it is hard to see your child under stress. But try to resist solving your teen’s problems. Instead, work together to brainstorm solutions and let your teen come up with ideas. Using this approach helps teens learn to tackle stressful situations on their own.

WHAT BALANCED HEALING CAN OFFER
+Acudetox – for management of stress & anxiety, addiction +Bach Flower Remedies – for emotional balancing +Supplements for the management of stress and mild to moderate depression.

TOP 10 CHALLENGES THE YOUTH OF TODAY FACES - PART 3
We continue with the top 10 challenges the youth of today faces.

So far we have discussed:

- Single Parent Households
- Substance Abuse
- Early Maturity
- Violence in Schools

The next two challenges are:

MATERIALISM
It is sad but a bitter fact that we live in a society that promotes consumerism and materialism. And we unknowingly encourage and instill this philosophy into our children. Surprisingly we teach our children that the success and happiness in life is measured by how much stuff or wealth you acquire or what Brand name items you where? It is nothing but natural when kids ask for things which their friends may have. But instead of fulfilling their demands immediately, we should take a pause and think seriously. In which direction we are heading? Never mind, we satiate their demands which are within our financial limit, but that is not a good sign at all.

OBESITY
Recent trends show that approximately 25% kids are obese in India. There is a thin line between being chubby and being obese. Why so? What went wrong? Who’s to blame? There are several questions which instantly pop up. Video games, TV, the internet and fast food can be blamed partially. Today, kids are spending more time watching TV, surfing the internet than running around. This sedentary lifestyle has dangerous consequences. The saddest thing is that they can feel socially awkward or being ridiculed by their peers. Apart from obesity-related health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, other side-effects are low self-esteem, depression, etc.

SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT THIS?

- BE A ROLE MODEL. Whether you know it or not, your teen looks to you as a model for healthy behavior. Do your best to promote sustainable living. Make your own clothes, grow your own food philosophy.

- GET YOUR TEEN MOVING. Getting regular exercise is one of the best ways to beat stress, for both adults and teens. Encourage your teens to explore an exercise/activity they enjoy, whether it is team sports or other activities like yoga, wall climbing, swimming, dancing, or hiking. You might even suggest trying a new activity together like hiking in the outdoors.

In this post we will continue to discuss the top 10 challenges the youth of today faces. To recap our first post discussed, Single Parent Households and Substance Abuse.
The next two are:

EARLY MATURITY

In earlier generations, kids enjoyed being kids. But today, with the advent of satellite television and internet, kids are bombarded with unwanted information. They are exposed to some adult-related content too, which is not at all conducive for their delicate minds. The concept of childhood becomes problematic.

VIOLENCE IN SCHOOLS

When we send our kids to school, we usually take a sigh of relief. Schools play a major role in teaching life skills to young minds and their endeavor must be recognized. It is reasonable to expect that these sacred places of learning would prove as safe havens for children. Increasing cases of crime in school makes us lose our sleep. No, these are no minor cases of bullying but serious full-fledged crimes like stabbings, fighting and suicides.

Teenagers face a variety of stresses. For some, it is trying to balance a part-time job with mountains of homework. Others may have to help out at home or deal with bullying or peer pressure. Whatever the cause, starting down the road to adulthood has its own special challenges.

CALL your "health care provider" if your teen seems:
– Overwhelmed by stress
– Talks about self-harm
– Mentions thoughts of suicide
– Also call if you notice signs of bullying, depression or anxiety.

BALANCED HEALING can offer:

–ACUDETOX – for management of stress & anxiety,
- BACH FLOWER REMEDIES – for emotional balancing
– SUPPLEMENTS for the management of stress and mild to moderate depression as well as assisting with the focus and clarity of mind especially for the wandering mind and high stress times around exam time.

TOP 10 CHALLENGES THE YOUTH OF TODAY FACES

As it is Youth Day/Month June 16th, we thought it apt to discuss this topic.
The youth are the pillars of social, economic and political developments. In addition to their intellectual contribution and the ability to mobilize support, our youth bring unique perspectives to our lives and society. As a society we should value the imagination, ideals and energies of young men and women, which are also the future stakeholders of our society. We will Explore some of the basic problems faced by today’s youth, in our evolving modern world.

SINGLE PARENT HOUSEHOLDS

When kids see their parents living under different roofs, their adolescent mind suffers. The last two decades, we have seen an increase in single parent homes. It is really tough to look after a child in divided home. The situation is far more difficult when kids are raised single-handedly. Even if the parent / s are participatory ans involved it has been seen that the children are often deprived of parental guidance, which may result in an unwanted number of problems, such as alcohol/drug abuse, school dropout, and teenage pregnancies. Often these children do not have a childhood as they are burdened with adult responsibilities.

SUBSTANCE ABUSE

“A cigarette in my hand…I felt like a man.” Yes…..the famous anti-smoking campaign by Gary Lawyer did manage to scare smoking to some extent. Leave aside the society, cigarette smoking is not even justified in the world of cinema now. Smoking was cool, back then. But nowadays, the awareness to the danger of smoking has increased substantially. Unfortunately it is not the same in case of drinking and using drugs. They are still assumed as cool stuff. Youngsters literally hang around booze. Apart from damaging their own health, they also risk the society. Under the influence of alcohol, these brats will rash drive and do several other anti-social activities.

It’s extremely important for people with addictions to seek help and if you know someone who can’t make the leap themselves, it’s important for you to then be supportive and encourage them to do so.

We will be discussing more challenges over the coming weeks during the month of June, so watch out for our posts.

WHAT SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE?
