Climate impact on learning

If there is something the pandemic has taught us, it is that children cannot afford to learn online or lose precious time learning in person. Climate change-induced will only increase in severity, and more children will be forced to deal with the effects of these disasters - including mental health challenges and issues associated with virtual learning.
I can only hope politicians will realize that climate change adaptation is not enough: Climate change mitigation is just as important. For the sake of younger generations, preventing climate change-induced disasters is crucial. If children are our future, how can we sit back and let disasters continue to traumatize children and inhibit their development?

Juvenile gang culture

The lack of proper mental development of adolescents, absence of right supervision by parents at the time of inevitable changes happen in them, deficiency of getting quality time, indifference, failure of practicing patternedsocial values and norms, etc.- are the main reasons why 14 to 18-year-old adolescents in the country are immersed in juvenile crime.
The negative effects of globalization and rapid urbanization, misconceptions about friendship and juvenile subculture also play a major role in the unbridled arrogance and gang culture of emerging teenagers. To overcome such an undesirable situation, allocation of quality time by the parents, maintenance of existing social and family values by the kids, and inculcation of the human qualities in the adolescents are imperative.
Parents are the first and foremost institution for their children. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure the intensive care and attention of the parents behind the worthy upbringing of the children. It is necessary to keep the children in the mainstream of society by creating strong social bonds through the exercise of friendly relations and by bridging the parental gap between parents and children. At the same time, it is very substantial to keep the growing children always involved in constructive and intellectually creative activities.
