1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Letter to the Editor (3E Lam Lok Yin, Daisy)

Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my views on teenage issues. I would like to talk about the problem teenagers face nowadays and offer some solutions to the problems.

First of all, the common teenagers problem is Internet addiction. They spend much time of the Internet till midnight regardless of a lots of homework and revisions. This problem is caused by much pressure from academic and they want to escape from reality. Besides, they want to get ‘sense of achievement’ from virtual world. In order to help them stay away from the Internet, they should explore more interest, such as basketball and drawing.

Moreover, the idol worship becomes more serious due to the promotion of the entertainments and televisions. Since this social atmosphere extends to teenagers, they would give up studying and relationship with parents or classmates, and are only concerned about idol. Parents can tackle this problem by standing from their views. Parents need to address the problem by caring such as understanding their needs and feeling instead of scolding.

Last but not least, teenagers are keen on their peer most of the time. Therefore, they are easily affected by their friends. This makes the problem peer pressure exist. Teenagers not only want to have self-identity, but also want to have a companion. So, the problem of peer pressure becomes more serious. They can seek help from social workers and parents, because they can give them some rational opinions. They can also find some methods that are suitable for them to release these pressures.

To sum up, if teenagers find out they’re facing problems, they should forwardly seek for help from someone reliable. I hope that these solutions can help teenagers. Furthermore, I hope they can face these predicaments. Although the world is full of suffering, they can overcome them by love.

Yours faithfully,
