Topic: In some countries young people have little leisure time and are under a lot of
pressure to work hard in their studies. What do you think are the causes and effects of
this condition? Plan your response, and then write a cause and effect essay.
Leisure time it the time that most of the young people lack in because of lots of
issue especially in their studies. Young people nowadays are busy in doing
assignments, projects and homework that have been ordered by their teachers and
lecturers. Besides that, there are many news shown in newspaper or television that
report about stress of students in their study due to lots of causes so it shown clearly
that young people nowadays have lots of stress. Leisure time is very important for us
especially young people because we are still amateurs in this social community and
need more experience. There are several causes that cause young people nowadays
lack of leisure time.
Firstly, school has usually been cited as the most well-known cause of stress
among young people. Unquestionably, knowledge is ever increasing and the amount of
knowledge that students are supposed to study at school these days can be worrying.
Lots of the parents are also unable to teach their kids although it just secondary
standard. For example, in 90’s time kindergarten kids just learn ABC when they were 5
years old but in nowadays kids start to learn adjective and verb when they were 5 years
old. Therefore, instead of absorbing knowledge naturally, they are jam-packed with it.
For instance, my six years old sister nowadays hate study and started to avoid from
books because it was too hard and she can’t receive in a short time. They are
overburdened with the workload and hardly have time for recreation and relaxation.
Definitely, nervous tension is unavoidable.
Secondly, non-supportive parents are also cause that adds to the young people’s
stress nowadays. They have such very high expectations of their children that they
sometimes pay no attention to their children’s feelings. For example, they always
require their children to gain brilliant academic records and take little note of how much
suffering their children have to run into. Besides that, the parents with high expectation
will always stare on their children’s homework and force them to study all the time
without providing any rest or entertainment for them. In this way, children are put under
incredible pressure, which can easily lead to some psychological problems, especially
What are the effects when the young people get stressed? They will start to say
dumb things. They will start babble on endlessly or go completely mute. They will snap
at their friends and family, or feel annoyed by stranger on the street. This shown that
our brain start to react negatively and we started to be negative when we get stress. It
also cause us having negative thinking, for instance, there are few news report that lots
of teenagers try to commit suicide because can’t handle all the stress taken in school or
college. It proof that stress can affect our emotional intelligence. It negatively impacts
our ability to intuit other people’s feelings, convey our own feelings and communicate.
Stress can prevent us being aware of and controlling our emotions, so it’s hard to
maintain a positive mood when stressed.
In conclusion for this stress problem, we should think some solution to avoid
these problem repeat again. Solutions that are able allow those young people get
interest back into their study and will not try to avoid studying but enclose their distance
between studying. Besides that, young people also should have their own solution such
as time-management and prepare a proper schedule for planning about their work and
assignment. Schools are also require to balance the studying level for each standard
and level because they unable to receive it when it was too hard.
