Do Young People Spend Their Time Wisely?
Leisure time can be well spent in many different ways. One popular option among the young is playing video games and watching television. While other activities like sports, social gathering and reading are available to them but many people feel that they spend too much time on these indoor games and screens and prefer them to be more active.
To a certain extend I disagree that some of young people today use effectively their leisure time in productive activities.
However, I also think that others spend hours on watching television and playing video games. Nowadays, younger generation has greater choices of leisure facilities than previous one. Among such facilities are television and video games. Some social experts and families are concerned about health of teenage on these activities. This is supported by some reports that sitting too long in front of television could lead to problems of eyes and back like watching television and playing computer games have tended to increase recently.
On the other hand, some experts believe that some video games can improve their skills and this could help his or her future career like operating doctor or pilot. In addition, watching television keeps young audience inform about what happens around locally as well as globally. That would enhance teenagers’ to more opened-minded and encourage them to keep eyes on challenging local and international issues.
In conclusion, it’s not really a question of age. Old and young people can choose to use their time wisely or to eliminate. I hopefully we all can make choices that benefit in the long run even more or less. However, encouragement from parents and community may help supporting young people to spend their free time wisely rather than wasting their time on watching too much television and also playing games.
