Teenagers : Rave or Rage?

Giving voice to those most affected by separating parents.

I often wonder where Teenagers today are coming from, no sense of the future and having no fear of the consequences of actions they take today on their adult life!

Actually that is a typical teenager attitude since time immemorial but today things seem so heightened by media and peer pressure and a culture by the authorities keep telling everyone what they should not be doing instead of wondering why they do it and is there an intrinsic reason why here in the UK we have the highest rate of teenage pregnancies,a normalised culture of drug use and alcohol intake that exceeds a comparable age group even in France!
At a time in their life when they should concentrate on getting the best education they can and not be dismayed if they are not the most academic in the block as they should be getting support to make the most of their abilities in sport, arts or vocational attributes. All else should be secondary as in my view this is money in the bank for the future and whilst when you are 14 being 21 seems ages away in fact it is not and every effort should be made to guide people into that fact.
I wrote in a recent education blog, shortly to be transferred to my new magazine,in the last year of primary school there should be a time designated to preparation for what is to come in secondary school including the usual sex, drugs and rock and roll stuff along with social skills which would help them from day one on that fateful September day. There is life beyond Facebook, texting, I-Box and clubbing. If you fall off a tree or your bike this makes you better at those activities and the same rule could apply to many other things in life and above all give the young today a little more self esteem so often lacking when they realise they do not look like their favorite pop star or football player.
I have included a few pictures of who I would consider good role models today if I were a teenager or would wish my own children to emulate, besides the afore mentioned pop or soccer stars, but I was hard pressed to consider a good female contender.
I was however interested in America's First Lady Michelle Obama who invited 12 London students to the Whitehouse last week and seems to have a genuine interest in the young today so maybe it is her we need to bring up to date with how separation and alienation is affecting so many young people today and their futures are being thwarted before they have begun!

Lest we forget!

Lest we forget!
In the year we saw the last of the World War One ‘Tommy’s’ complete his journey on this earth and many World War Two warriors now considering how many more memorials they will attend especially in foreign lands, we appreciate what their lives and those who did not return stand for in giving us freedom of speech and a quality of life many of us take for granted and my thoughts of my late father a peace loving man facing the horror of war from the rear gunning turret of a Lancaster Bomber.
