As technologies develop, there are more challenges and requirements that young people have to deal with. It is very common that they find themselves having very little leisure time. From my personal perspective, there are three main causes which are poor education systems, wrong attitudes and lacking of places for entertaining. I’m going to address these issues and then give my personal thought as to what should be done to resolve this problem.
Firstly, many countries tend to have a very heavy education system. In such a country, people have to spend almost eight hours at school every day. After coming back, there are tons of assignments which are supposed to be handed in the day after that. Obviously, they are left with very few choices except studying.
Secondly, without a right attitude, a person could enforce himself to study just to have certificates. Some people might think further education is the only way for them to get employed or to earn their living. However, every human needs to have social relationships and of cause to enjoy his life.
Next, not many countries have good places for entertaining. Without being organised, young people can be trapped into criminal activities. Therefore, every government has to take this into account. They have to organise and start building places for young people to gather and to establish social relationships.
From my personal viewpoint, one of the many solutions is to integrate outdoor activities into education systems. In other words, we should let young people have time to enjoy in social activities and to learn new skills that can give them a healthy life.
