* What do you think is the biggest problem facing youth today?
"There is no relevance to the peer pressure youth face today compared to the peer pressure youth faced 10 or 20 years ago. If you asked an adult what they believed peer pressure meant, they would surely say when an individual is influenced to engage in risky and harmful behaviors. Today, I believe the biggest problem facing youth is being pressured into feeling inadequate. Teenagers often lack confidence because they compare themselves to their peers. We try too hard to excel further than others and tend to work ourselves to a point where we cannot handle the weight we are carrying. The youth should learn to feel satisfied with themselves yet motivated to improve. "
