One of the actual youth
problems is hardness to get an education. A lot of young people think
that education is
inaccessible because of lack of money. They would like to get a high education,
but it could be very difficult to enter the university or very expensive.
Unemployment is another great problem among youth. Difficulty which young people face is to
find a good job after graduation. It is hard to find a well paid job, you must
have connections everywhere. Young people are discriminated against when they
seek a job, for they are inexperienced. It is also hard to find a job according
to your qualifications, good jobs are hard to come by.
of unemployment leads to material problems. Young people have to pay for everything, they have
needs, they have to pay their bills and etc., but they don't have enough money.
Almost all of young people face to shortage of money.
The housing problem
is still unsolved. Usually young
people have no chance to buy
or to rent an apartment because of soaring of real estate prices. No housing
and no hopes to get it. They have to live unsettled life in hard conditions.
Some of them have even nowhere to live. Lack of your own dwelling (жилище, дом)
prevents to create young families.
drug-addiction is a
relatively new problem but it is becoming more and more dangerous. Millions of
young people today are using drugs. Usually they want just to try it, starting
with light drugs like marijuana. Then they can’t stop and after year may be two
years they will die. Drug-addiction is a disease. Drug and alcohol consumption
can destroy individual’s life. Another problem is alcoholism. The reason, some
people suppose, is that vodka, beer, wine are easily available and inexpensive.
Early alcoholism is caused by beer-addiction. Also problem is bad habits such
as smoking especially among adolescents.
in resent time in dysfunctional
families where not enough love and warmth. Lack of attention from parents
results in conflicts with children. Problem
is also a generation gap (пропасть). Every
new generation is different from the one that preceded it. Today the
differences are especially considerable. The adults always believe that they
know best only because of their greater life’s experience. They don't want
their values to be doubted. The young, on the other hand, are questioning the
assumptions of the adults, they suspect that the world created by their
predecessors was not the best one.
