Teenage Pasaway

This caught my attention...pasaway teenagers...are they? I was watching a show from ABS-CBN and I observe their actions and behavior. Honestly I don't like what I'm seeing. This is not what I expect them to be. Well...I don't want to generalize...not all the said contestants (known as housemates) are like that. I have to give credit to some teenagers who are really a role model...a good influence that is. There are kind-hearted and talented ones. Some are conservative still. And others are doing well in their studies. But I wonder about the others who are not doing well as being a role model. They are being pasaway. I have a cousin who's being pasaway now...he has a girlfriend and he is really giving his mother hard time thinking about him. I'm beginning to wonder what is wrong. During my days teens were different...that's what I believe in. Teens those days we more respectful in general. But today teens are different. I can't say how different but I am sure they are a lot more different. Maybe the word pasaway describe them more....Yeah! They are hard-headed.

What makes the teens now a day become pasaway? Is it the environment? Is it the society they are living now, the people they hang around with? Does food have anything about it? Nah---I don't think so! Is it what they see on television? Is is the ever growing intellect of human being? What causes this evolution? They are really different. Aside from the style of clothing they wear, there is also the influence of language, they speak totally different. Sad to say that some values are put to waste. Less teenagers are practicing good moral values. Do school teachings loose their touch already? I can't really know. The start of every generations is different...some for the good and some for the bad. What people can see clearly is their changes for the bad. I believe it is more visible than those people who changes for the better.

I am afraid of the world outside my home. What will the teens become in the future? Will it worsen? ---hope not! I still believe in values, the values that our parents are teaching us. It always important to listen to our parent, because listening to them will lead us to a greater path.

I also believe that being a pasaway teenager is a stage of life. Soon after they mature they will grow into more responsible and good adults. Soon they will shed the skin of being pasaway and embrace a new life. They will learn from their mistakes and go on with life. Being pasaway will come to pass...

IN MY OPINION, I DID NOTICE CHANGES FROM THE TEENS TODAY, MOSTLY I DO NOT AGREE WITH. YET I WANT TO BELIEVE THAT ONE DAY THEY WILL CHANGE FOR THE BETTER. BUT AS FOR THE MOMENT ONLY FEW ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING...*sigh*
