Getting Involved With Our Youth

Sep 15, 2008
The youth of today definitely differs than the youth of twenty or thirty years ago and I believe it is time we find ways to get these youth involved at all age levels. Parents, teachers, and society has a responsibility as a whole every single time something devastating appears on the television concerning some child committing a crime.

It is up to us to take these little bulls the horns and incorporate values into them through a variety of fun activities that will get them involved so they can learn. Teach this young generation moral values, traditions, manners, and ways to express themselves positively that can help them release their built up aggression though a variety of vedic books. Ancient traditions can be taught through songs or a variety of games, but the main focus must be to can the interest of the child and capture their attention. In school there should be a class that is required for every single child to take just like English, Algebra, and Science that will teach these young minds all these things that we were taught, but some how we forgot to teach them.

The youth of today seem to have no idea about philosophy or yoga, and as far as them knowing dances such as the Fox Trot or the Cha-Cha you can forget it as well also. If this young generation does not have an established traditions or values, then what will their children be like? They need to be able to say that they are proud of their culture, their values, their traditions, and most importantly themselves. Often I look at this generation, then look at my own generation and am amazed at the vast difference.

Adults need to learn how to be able to relate to this younger generation by using entertainment if possible. This is due to this younger generation becoming bored so very easily. Tell them of the heroes of the past, but remember to include the challenges and struggles they faced and each improvement they made for their society along the way. Learn how to open yourselves up to the youth in your lives so that you may have a better influence on their lives and a better impact as well.

How will these younger generation understand traditions, moral values, or even holiday practices and customs if adults do not take the time to explain their sole purpose to them. As adults, how can we expect them to adopt these traditions, moral values, practices, and customs if we ourselves do not understand them or do not live by them completely? If we want our children to follow what we preach, then we must also walk the line that we preach as well.

It seems as if the days when families sat down together for every meal has changed. It also seems that families no longer take that special time to do little things together such as having a simple afternoon picnic. Parents need to set up lasting memories in their children that will motivate their children for years to come and that they will be able to pass down to their own children. Instead, it seems as if children are allowed to sit in front of a television sit all they want while playing countless hours of video games. How can a child make lasting memories with their parents when the parents are doing their own thing and the child is doing their own thing?
