Tip of the Week

A recent survey amongst teenagers has found that the biggest problem that they face, according to them, is not violence, crime, drugs or alcohol. Their biggest problem is boredom and lack of direction. In fact, these two things are big contributors to the other problems mentioned above. When kids have nothing positive to focus on or to work towards, then something negative will often fill the void. Lack of direction (producing boredom) leads kids to look for some excitement in their lives (crime, violence, drugs) and / or some way out of facing reality (drugs, alcohol, withdrawal). Helping kids find a meaning for their lives and setting goals can be lifesavers to so many.
