Secondly, I find that teenagers are way too lazy. What happened to the days when the whole family worked together at the weekend to do household chores? Nowadays teenagers do not even want to get off the couch to change the television channel. Clothes are always on the floor, wet towels are always on the bed, and their closet is a bin for everything they have ever owned. Cell phone dialing is the most exercise they do. They are against physical education and want it to be banned, they are even reluctant to walk, they refuse to do their homework and they fall asleep in class. Teenagers are the type of people who let things happen instead of making things happen.
Thirdly, teenagers are not only careless and lazy, but they are irresponsible too. We are aware that our curfew is at ten o'clock, yet we are out at midnight. Moreover, teenagers are ir-responsible when it comes to their education. They skip class, they do not complete their homework and they waste time during important lessons. They are irresponsible when it comes to their own health. Teens need more direction; they make stupid decisions when it comes to sexual activity, drugs and other health choices. Although adolescents are often told off for oversleeping and sleeping in class, they believe they may squeeze in 6 or 7 hours of sleep a night. These are clearly irresponsible actions.
Finally, Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream. I also have a dream that one day teenagers will be responsible, caring and hardworking individuals. I have the hope that one day my dream will come true.
