1.0 Introduction

The teenagers are very important for development of one nation. But now, we can heard that students damages discipline teacher’s car, inject drug .The increasing rate of student bully and drug abuse among youths is indeed of great concern. The causes of problems came from various factors. The main problem arises from teenager’s parent. The parent is a main character for their child, sometimes parents didn’t know about their children ability, that’s because the teenagers feel stress and tense. Sometimes, some parents put high expectations on their children like gets the excellence in their study or become high achiever in their school. By the same time their parent too control on their activities. Therefore, teenagers feel burden with their parent’s hope and aim on them. When they cannot achieve their friend’s level their self-esteem become low and they think they are not accepted in school’s society. The solution is, they find another community that can accept them. The society expressly blame on the teenagers when they making mistake. This kind of pressure from society put teenager in stress. The societies are not aware why does teenager react like that. Moreover the society doesn’t give them chance to change their behavior and feel they are the worst people in society. Adults sometime act in poor manner for example drunken parents or drug addict parents. They become the most important cause to what have happen on teenagers.

Teenage Bullying

Bullying includes a wide variety of behaviors, but all involve a person or a group repeatedly trying to harm someone who is weaker. It can involve direct attacks such as hitting, and stealing or damaging belongings, indirect attacks such as spreading rumors or encouraging others to reject or exclude someone. Bullying can start at any age and can continue through high school. Most of teenager bullying cases happen in school, because the people who bully and the victim both of them are lack of social problem solving skill. There are many problem solving skill to prevent bullying. Parents are should try sitting down with teenager and brainstorming some solution to the situation. And parents are also can discuss about what they have tried before in similar situations, and what outcomes they experienced. If a child ask to parent he is a victim of school bullying, parent are cannot ignore about this, because it is very serious case. First, believe and listen what the child say, this is very important step to make child believe you can help him. Second, most children are deal with bullying behavior, so let the child know he is not alone in this situation. Third, if the child being threatened psychic or illegal way in school, don’t complicate report to school or police. Even the child do not want to do this, but bullying is cannot be tolerate. Fourth, teach the child courage say “NO” if being bully. The school counselor and teachers have responsibility to prevent the school bullying, they should always take a look on student who has unusual behavior in school. The discipline teacher must increase the punishment on bullying cases.

Teenage Drug Abuse

Drugs and Teenagers Drug use is the increasing problem among teenagers in today’s high schools. Most drug use begins in the preteen and teenage years. Why the reason teens are drug? There are many causes about teenager have a contact with drug. Family problem is one of the cause of teenager drug abuse, may be in family member who are the drug abuser, so teenager will influence by family member. Friends also is a reason of contact with drug. If a friend in the social group use drugs , the person may be offered to try drugs, which is direct pressure. Indirect pressure is when someone sees everyone around him using drugs and he might think that there is nothing wrong with using drugs. Even if a person had no intentions of using drugs one might do it just to be considered “cool” by his friends. Here is a personal example of drug use from a teenager, “When I started using, was only on weekends, at parties. I used drugs ‘recreationally’ and therefore thought I had no addiction problem. I used drugs like nicotine, marijuana or LSD to be happy or to have fun. I needed drugs. I kept using drugs, I used drugs like marijuana to fit socially. I had problems in my life, emotionally, that drugs only seemed to solve. Drugs made my problems worse. I started snorting cocaine. I injected heroin into my veins. I almost died. I was addicted.” Therefore drug is very harmful to everyone, especially teenager. Drug can destroy the teenager future or everything. The overcome method is parent must take some time to give enough concern to their children for avoid them from drugs. The school should hire a lecture to give a talk to teenager, let them know how about the drugs destroy our body and disadvantages of drug. The society must cooperate with police fight against drug dealer, without drug dealer, there are no drug to deal with buyer.

Teenage Suicide Problem

Therefore, they experience strong feelings of stress , confusion , self-doubt , pressure to succeed , and other fears while growing up . For some teens , suicide may appear to be a solution to their problems and stress.

Teenage suicide making many problem and this is an alert to society. When the teens are thinking about suicide they have some unusual behavior. They will always talking about suicide or death, feeling hopeless, give hints to people around his life he might not be around anymore . After that , teen also lose their interest in school or sport, and pull away from friend and family . What adult can do when their teen think about suicide? Parent must keep a close eye on teen want to suicide , understanding depression in teens is very important since it can look different about depression . Try to keep the lines communication open and express concern , support , and love.

2.0 Introduction

School uniforms should be compulsory for all students at all grade levels . There are many reasons, which justify this including discipline , discrimination and to give the students a sense of identity . 

If all students at a particular school didn’t wear school uniforms , there would be discrimination between the financially advantaged people and the disadvantaged people . The wealthier people would tend to look down the poorer people as it gives them a chance to flaunt their wealth .

When students wear school uniforms , it shows the similarities between them , and not the differences . Each school has their own rule of law and based on that , students need to obey on that law and respect . When student wears a uniform , it shows a sign of dignity and it means that that student has confirmed the school expectations and that student feels that he or she belongs to that school . School uniforms also indicate what degree or grade the students are in , and what kind of school they go to . School uniforms are good because some children would become bullied if they did not wear the most up to date fashions . A school uniform makes it easier for the school authorities to recognize students belonging to their school . So everyone wearing the same uniform everyday that type of degrading is avoided . In short , wearing school uniform is very important and bring a lot of advantage to student .
