Children Driven to Extreme Measures by Their Parents. R&J Creative Assignment.
By Miracle Duru.
Adolescent of our generations are getting dumber and dumber. It seems that we take everything we have for granted and we have no care or love for what others do for us. Teens believe that all their problems is the cause of their parents, e.g why am I so ugly?, why didn't mum marry a better looking dad or vise versa. They put so much pressures on their parents that why they do react that they say or do the most hurtful things that then drive the teenager to take drastic measures and go do something stupid. In Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet" we can see the same thing happening here. Two love striven birds Romeo of Montague and Juliet of Capulet that falls in love but Cannot be together as they are of different names are forced by the hands of their parents who refuses them marriage to do something so stupid.
A Broken Home!
In the above video can be found a factor of why adolescent consider such drastic actions. Fighting in front of your kids can traumatizing for them as it will be with them for the rest of their lives. This video is of a broken home a family who no longer gets along and fights all the time. This can lead any adolescent as they grow up into adulthood to think is okay to beat up women or fight with their wives and that is not okay. The continuity of such behavior around the child makes them rage on the inside and letting that rage build up can lead into so much destructive path in life. This also ties into Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet" when two broken family the Capulet and Montague have had a family feud for so long that it tied to their children that they had to take drastic action in deciding to get married in other to stop the fighting. This illuminates to such haste in their decisions as they claim to be in love, only knowing each other for less than two days they make such drastic plans in other to get married in hopes to stop the fighting between the two families. As parents we fail to sometimes we how far we push our kids and before we realize it, it has already been far too late and by then the damage has already been done. We need to beware of what we do around ourselves, I'm a teenage I'm aware that it is hard for our parents sometimes but it is also hard on us and they sometimes need to consider our feelings and take account of what we saying and trying to do.
Does The End Justify The Means?
In Shakespeare's play does the end justify the means? I would believe not because it took the lives of their kids to realize that this fighting has to stop. So the saying is right the end never justify the means. Actions of adolescent cannot always be justified because sometimes it is not always our fault we do what we do. Our parents are sometimes responsible in pushing us so far that we reach that point that we cannot take it anymore and then we snap, but we hope we have not gone too far that we are at the point of no return.
Even sometimes when we know somethings are wrong we are forced by our conscience to do it anyway hoping that we do not get in any sort of trouble but that is not always the case.
