Top 10 Problems facing our Young Children :Stanford University Survey

Children are the future of the country. In the near future, children today will play their respective role in serving their country. Sadly, there are many problems faced by the children of the nation. Below are some of these problems.

Multiple Education standards

The first and foremost problem of children is the education system of the country. There are multiple education standards, one operating as Government institutes, another English medium, and yet another in shape of madrasas. Not a single from the three education systems provide all necessary things
essential for the development of student. On one side government institutes lack required educational advancements that have took placed in the recent years. On the other hand, English medium institutes having excellent facility of modern day sciences. The religious madrasas neglect the daily sciences which are equally important for the development of any nation.

Children neglected from Parents

Parents play a major role in the bringing up of their children. But parents are so much busy with their jobs and daily pressure to provide for the family that they have forgotten their duty to educate their children. Parents leave their home early in the morning and return late at night. Hence they come to home exhausted and go to bed early. Children have to look after themselves and to handle all their problems on their own. They feel lonely, lost and neglected. Due to which they choose negative ways to get attention from their parents, like missing school and not doing well in their school exams. Children
spend more time with their friends as compared to others. Friends also contribute in the growing-up process of everyone.

Childs curious to the new things and influenced from bad habits

As children are growing up, they grow curious to the new things around them. Good friends are hard to find. As a result, most children are easily
influenced with the bad habits of their friends. We blindly listen to our friends without thinking whether it is right or wrong. This negatively affects the mindset of children which leads to the destruction of moral values.

Harsh information from internet  corrupts children’s innocent minds

Technology has advanced greatly over the years. Internet is easily accessible to everyone. Young people surf the web more often as
compared to others. The information available on the internet has no limit, and children taking advantage of the flaws are successful in getting what they want form the internet. They may get hold of explicit and harsh information which may corrupt their innocent minds. Without proper guidance children will make full use of their freedom on the internet. They may acquire violent videos and end up destroying their lives.

Moral Values

Every religion teaches its followers to do good and fear GOD. These values give man the strength to avoid all evils and live a good life. But the children lack religious guidance nowadays. Without the fear of GOD, children do not fear anybody. This allows evil to get hold of their minds and soul, due to which other people suffer. Children are not properly guided due to which they fail to learn good moral values and to have self-discipline. Another main problem is the

communication gap between children and their elders. Children considering themselves to be old enough want to get independent in making their own decisions while parents knowing about their vulnerability refuse to do so. This causes disputes among children and their parents. Raising a child is difficult in tough economic conditions. The situation is even terrible when there is only one parent. A single parent is likely to bring less income home. This results in fewer opportunities for crucial necessities such as education. Trying to make ends meet also takes time, due to which children get deprived of proper guidance.

Inspire from Actors
There was a time in cinematic history where nearly every actor/actress was portrayed on screen with a cigarette in hand. Smoking was thought to be cool. As a result, everyone was doing it, including kids. The same can be said about drugs and alcohol. These sins are of much importance in everyday media. We live in a society that promotes materialism and so the parents transfer bad habits into their children.

Children get the idea that happiness  in life depends upon how much stuff you have

Children get the idea that happiness  in life depends upon how much stuff you have. Kids force their parents to buy them things, especially if their friends have something similar. Children are getting obese. Video games, TV, the internet and fast food are the main causes. Kids are spending more time
sitting in front of a TV/computer screen than running around outside. This sedentary lifestyle has consequences. Over weight kids get ridiculed, this may cause issues as low self-esteem, depression, etc. There are health concerns as well, mainly High blood pressure, diabetes etc. As these problems grow rapidly in our society, actions should be taken before it is too late.

Main Reason

Parents are the main reason for the downfall in children. Parents should spend more quality time with their children, educating them properly, and
taking care of all their needs. (Miller) (Internet Addiction: What Can Parents Do?)
