Daily Post Prompt: Youth
In response to daily post’s one-word prompt: Youth
Youth reminds me of early years, teens, teenagers,childhood. This to me is the time to train teenagers to become responsible citizens of the world. The youth of today besides enjoying the rise of technology, must also use them responsibly.
I am thinking of the invention of cell phones, when I look around I see kids using their cell phone, while walking, driving, in short they are oblivious to the fact there is a world outside and they should be cautious of when they can use their little toy the,”Cell Phone,” only yesterday a teen was driving her parent’s car an SUV, she was in the parking lot, where one must be aware of other people around and the speed of her vehicle. She ignored all these important things, and drove her vehicle without looking, she smashed into a car, the driver had seen her and waited to let her pass.
I had to bring this up, because the girl in the car was my daughter, she had a mild concussion, I’m worried, not knowing how this is going to impact her. In the meantime I wonder whether her parents would teach her that driving and using the,”Cell Phone,’ is a big No,No!
