I believe society is putting pressure on teens to do and make right decisions by putting more out there for them to use when needing or wanting help. I agree with giving help, but when there is so much pressure to use the resources put out by society, social media and so on, the teens almost always get confused.

The way many people are trying to minimize problems scares me.

It’s like these people have forgotten the best way to help. By just talking and comforting those in troubled times and showing them love, many youth problems would no longer be so overwhelming. Many of the things going on around us are frightening and confusing, and are corrupting not only adults but teens also. These problems are ruining their thoughts on life and how they are meant to spend their time.

Almost everyone I know says, “We are just having fun.” To me, getting into trouble and being reckless is not my idea of fun. I’m all for experiencing new and exciting things and when those things have long, even lifelong effects, I just say, “No thanks.”

I know that it’s hard to stay away from what is so mainstream for teens, with problems like drugs and alcohol, violence, bullying, fitting in and confidence issues, but I know that with help and the proper resources, we teens can overcome anything.

Being happy and knowing what to do in situations and what to do with our time are some things that are helpful.

I will be writing on different teen topics and problems, and hope to give a good point of view for teens, and the things they face on a day to day basis.

I’m open to talking about different issues and would enjoy any ideas or suggestions.

If you would like me to write about a certain topic or would just like some info I’m at the Rimbey Review on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. If you have anything at all you would like to see me write, I would be pleased to hear what you would have to say.
