Sex, drugs and binge drinking

I read in the paper today about our kid sand the problems they pose with booze, drugs 
and sex. And I had to write this. It's always good to have something to write about. 
Too much pressure causes these things to happen.

   Sex, drugs and booze

Sex, drugs and binge drinking
I heard on the local news
It’s what our kids get into now
Are we just paying our dues?
We’re putting pressure on these guys
And driving them insane
Study, study, all the time
Then study more again.

We teach our kids at an early age
That all that life should mean
Is being smarter than the rest
That they must be the cream
Competing hard to shine on out
Relaxing that’s not on
Just push and push then push again
Till all their strength is gone.

Oh yes, the mighty God of sport
This each child must take part
Yet winning is the only goal
Using mind but not the heart
And all these school kids want to do
Is chill out, come on down
but when these naughty things they do
The authorities, they frown.

    I think many parents over schedule thier kids and don't allow them down time. Also to much computer time reduces kids relational skills and they fail to develope meaningful relationships. This lack of relationships results in them not attaining helathy coping skills.

    Your so right with this cuz, so much pressure on the young ones these days, they feel they have to be the best at everything and when they fail , it's hit the bottle or drugs time. Parents, teachers, religion, fashion and so the list goes on, all too much pressure, their not allowed to be free kids anymore, adults just programme them like robots.

    Well done. From age to age / We turn the page / But are shocked at what we find / Each generation gets much worse / And no one seems to mind.

    That was a pretty cute comment, Jon, My friend. and you are right. I remember Mr Dylan singing times they are a changing, and our kids getting out of control. what a prophet he was. I think society gets what it deserves. Kids need to have fun, that's why they are young. Thanks Jon for your comments...peter
