Young people have more problems than adults. Do you agree ?

Every person. at some point of his life, will encounter problems. I agree that young people have more problems than adults, especially in today's world where things are changing quickly.

Certainly, adults have their own share of problems. I have known of adults who face financial difficulties, particularly if they have a family to support. Some also have health problems, and there are others who worry about finding a life partner or trouble with their marriage.

Young people have their own problems. Our problems are harder to solve because there are often no clear-cut solutions to them. One of the areas that can trouble young people is the search for identity. This is an inevitable problem in a teenager's life. He is no longer a child, yet not quite an adult.

I have heard boys and even girls disparage a girl for her plain looks. This attitude can make the less attractive girl self-conscious and unsure of herself.

During the teenage years, young people begin to show an interest in dating. There is so much pressure from the popular media which constantly features stories and songs about couples and romance. Some students realize that dating will interfere with their studies, but they may feel like 'nerds' if they do not date. Young people who date often cannot handle the pressures of the relationship as well as their studies. As a result, they suffer failure in both. Nowadays, young people face a lot of pressure to do well in their studies. For most of us, we know that academic success is good for us, but at times we do feel the stress. No one wants to disappoint his parents.
