Hallo to everyone!
Exclamation Don't you think that the problem that forms the topic of my request, is worth speaking nowadays. Don't you think that drugs, underage drinking and hte practise of crime is too widespread in the teenagers' circles today?
Question What do YOU think about all that? Write something about...
I'm a newcomer, so it will be certainly interesting for me to meet new people.

Thank you.[/b]
Live long and prosper!

An interesting topic to talk about is Russian Teenagers.

You imply that there is a problem with drugs and so on. Give us your views and opinions. What do typical Russian teenagers do? Where do they go? How do they get the drugs?

Are they not able to do the normal things that teenagers do? Do they have opportunities to mix with friends of the opposit sex?

Tell us more.

Hello Iím Kawin Tantawewong. Iím Thai teenager. In my country there are many problems of the teenager. I think family is the first thing that is important for teenager. If the parents have the time for teenager to ask some problems and talk together so parents will know every problems and could help teenager to solve them. But if the member in the family do not have the time to talk together, when teenager have the problem they will talk with their friends. If their friends are bad they will order or tell that teenager to go to join the bad things that they have done before like drugs, thief and crime so the friend is important for teenager so much, too. If the teenager do not stay at home on holiday or in the night, spend more money and like to stay alone. Please take care them more to protect and help them from the problem that will be happen. Try to take the teenager to the some places that they do not have drinking, dancing or sex such as temple or museum. I think it can help them so much about their problems. Try to teach them to control their opinion their idea and every thing that they think. I think it is the best way because I have done it before. You can ask me about how to control and how to teach.

We have many teen's problem in the world , about crime, drug, young pregnenancy,violence or someting.
I think family plays an important role in our life.
Parents have to teach the correct knowledge about it, and let's talk about these problems.
We are still younger, but we can change the world, change yourself, change your friends.
We have to study all things, talk to many people.
Take courage! I want to change about it, too.

I know that the most serious problems with teenagers nowadays are irresponsible sex, crime, drugs, alcohol and other irresponsible activities. But there are other problems, too. I've never really had those serious problems, I've never used drugs, even when I had the opportunity to, I've never got drunk, I've never killed anyone, etc. My main problem as a teenager was loneliness. My family moved to the U.S when I was 14, to live in a small town. I went to a high school where everyone knew each other since kindergarten, everyone had friends and no one was interested in me. I was soooo alone!!! I hardly had anyone to talk to. I had no boyfriends, which frustrated me. I kept thinking "I'm not ugly, I'm not a complete idiot, I'm a friendly, supportive person. What's wrong with me??? Why is it that I have no boyfriend?" It seemed to me that EVERYBODY except me had a boyfriend or a girlfriend. Well, eventually I got used to being alone... Now I am no longer a teenager (good for me...), no longer in school. I feel much happier. I am excited about going to college, studying hard, meeting new people and finding a good job. I think that teenagers have all those problems because of our society. Our society creates this stressful environment, it creates an image that "if you are a worthy person, you are rich, beautiful, have many friends and all the boys are running after you". It frustrates teenagers when they cannot achieve this ideal. I've learned to create my own ideals and to follow them. I'd suggest other teenagers to do the same.
