Adolescence are misleading! What and who would turns them back to life ?

Look at them, all are using cell phone almost for 18 hours – less or more, as it turns to be an ornaments – a stuff bundled with potential threat ! Well, we, as the elderly being astonished often just shrugging our relaxed shoulder saying, where are they going, what should we do! And may be thinking something might happen in the future certainly, at least something; but we can’t solidify that decisive conclusion – some bodies may tie the bell someday, but who !

What is happening now:

The whole youth and children community are captive now by a little electronic screen or by the desktop\laptop’s stubborn keyboard and fluorescent screen flushing their innocent face – isn’t it? Simply look at the their lifestyle, this has been become the common national and global situation and I must rather say, this is now a global crisis. I have seen them, while eating in the breakfast (but, is it in time? – morning or when, nobody knows indeed) or lunch or dinner or any in-between meal – one of their hands capturing the cell phone, utmost curiously and strongly and other neglected hand grasping food from the dismal food plate at very irregular time interval – very ridiculous! No attention at all to the food or the taste they might have – the life building food indeed. I told and advice my children and others known relative youth to take food without doing anything and with eager attention as this practice to be attentive to enjoying food is extremely important and healthy – otherwise it could lead to indigestion or the food benefit goes in vein in question of building health and intellectual abilities, a sound human being must have. But, my suggestion went astray, they looked at me like a stranger as I were happened from the time of little house on the prairie! Yes we must be happened to come to the reality or practice the glorious life-style from the “little house in the prairie” time. The wisdom says, eat like what your grandfather eat, think attentively and sleep like what the wise men of the old did, look at the life of integrity, honesty and practice what the Prophets advices to the humanities. Now, this suggestion – to me, is for all time and for the well-being, must be remained for the generations upcoming.

We had open playing field somedays; we had fantastic playful swimming experiences in the muddy pond and rivers, we fished, we flew kites with enormous pleasure with so many competitive buddies around us holding the kite-rope-wheel at their anxious hands, we played football, crickets, and so many customed games (so many really, I can’t even remember how lovely and innumerous the preparations, materials, techniques and the numbers of the games were) at our childhood and youthhood. What today’s children and youth are getting, doing or playing in practices? Just look carefully at your young members – they become and being the worst target of today’s technology putting them in the risky addictive practices and becoming victim by the bad side of the Information Technology. My son is playing at the PC (even in the afternoon/evening or other times) with lot of computer games at his proud repositories, sharing games techniques and sessions with his friends at different places (local or foreign). Someday, playing computer games were confined at PC’s local host level few decades before, but now, this is global and shared in the huge mysterious Internet and lot of streaming gaming servers are placed elsewhere in the world. We have no idea and can’t sometimes trace the youths and children, where they are connected right now! With whom our beloved children are playing games in the Net or being trapped by the anonymous bodies (hackers and malicious trackers or badly influencial communities – so-called religious or crime! ). Our youths are busy all the days and nights with the mysterious electronic devices and we might think or guess proudly that they are in the right tracks being up-to-date and getting ready for the on-going and upcoming challenging Tech-time, right? But who knows where are they right now. Please try to understand and monitor them carefully – What are they doing, where they are now and with whom ?

The current frustrating situation and outcome:

The huge youth and children communities except a few a percentages, are suffering from bad and weak health condition, am I wrong?. As they are trapped by the virtual fake technology world, are distracted from the reality, hardship and integrity practices that normal healthy life building protocol requires. They are becoming weaker and weaker, srink and lacking vigor day by day, engulphed by the fake practices they are losing the desired confidence level as the growing communities need to demonstrate. These types of children or youths are not being brave and proactive to demonstrate sound and desired growth trends, try to understand. They are out of the broad healthy outlook and thus being deprived of the strong humanly integrity norms and ideals or moralities (on this issues, if raised to them, they may wonder) that is the most essential building blocks for the human being – this is my assessment. These extremely busy children and youths are not caring and sharing that much of the family affairs and activities with the parents and the elderly persons in the family or the associated surrounding environment and society. They are not becoming proactive or initiators of any family or social responsibilities as it should be at this stage. But they could assist the elders or give conernes to assist to other family activites if told or requested sometimes – in the few random events or occurrences, but most of the time showing reluctant in all assigned family tasks other than their own school home tasks or own affairs – isn’t not enough to make them selfies or self-centered. I can’t predict even now, are they would be changed someday in the near or far future when they are in the real life or would take the hard reality in their own established family or social areas? Or how or how much they will show responsibilities or be involved in the society or in the broad spectrum, the national/global issues or humanity matters. But we need them to be like and treated that ways. My thinking or prediction may be seemed ambitious or amorphous to all of you while reading this article but, remember my friends or respected persons, I have observed this situation since long back very intensely in my family, in other families. Please look at yours children or youths attentively and with deep curiosity, what is being happening to your children and youths – may be your’s situation is running quite well and healthy – but please look around, this is the real scenarios.

What to do then:

I consider, this is not any business of the Government or community administrative bodies, yes they might provide policies or plans but the execution and commissioning completely rest on the respective families, parents or responsible elderly or relatives. It’s an outcome of a solid foreseeing plan and family policies specially from the parents and the execution issues to put the addictive children or youth in right track is the family business – it is private and sometimes confidential. Yes, there might be innovative campaigns and motivational steps – through the social and electronic media (a perfect place where they are captive and open now) – but that would take time and patience.

Let you put an intelligent and subtle risk assessment, monitoring and treatment scheme at home on who are with the electronic devices bearer (your children), track them, slowing advice or motivate or may be counseling them, may be taking help from some reliable psychologist or persons or socially influential respected ideal person you or the children or youth may like. This situation took long time to take prevail and required to be fixed through a long or tedious efforts – isn’t it ? Rome was built in a day; as this has been become a horrible fantasy castle of destruction for the them and needs hard and patient efforts to get them back to normal and natural life conditions.

After letting them doing the regular desired school and family tasks – let them play in the green field again, what you and we did at our childhood, let them playfuly swim, play and compete with kites with other boys or girls in the open blue sky, let them travel to the forests, seas, mountains with the beloved families, assciates and friends, let them communicate with their friends but here with other healthy necessary issues – I suggest. Plying games in the filed or open space, or if not found at the roof-top with safety precaution by the responsible elders, let them be involved with cultural activities, social working, competition, debating, let them attain the social or national or global programs or gatherings, meet their idols, let them having all those are good for growing up and healthy to build up a prosperous family and nation. I hope yous children or youths would take part in the nation building activities and campaign. I predict with full respect that your off-springs would be the proud part of coming human civilization soon, of course mine as well.
