Nowadays, teenagers are the most affected by anxiety issues. The most biggest cause are the high expectations. We want them to keep working and working until they get worn out. Just because the world has developed so much and we want our children to go to prestigious colleges or universities to keep up with the world. We just want them to get depressed to complete our dreams forgetting their own dreams.

Parent Disapproval is another thing that the teenagers are afraid of. People think that only parents think of their children. It is true but sometimes it is not. Sometimes the children take more care of their parents than their parents. Teenagers work hard to achieve their parent's dream but even after that some of the parents disapprove their children's hard work when they failed to achieve their dreams.

Parents are the most closest to their children and when they disapproves them, it hurts them so much that they get anxious.

Suicide rate is also increasing in teenagers due to this anxiety problem. It is not that they are not working hard because they are. Sometimes, fate is not with us and because of that, we failed to achieve. Sometimes, due to these failures, they also get involve in bad companies and started to do the things they don't want to do like taking drugs, robbing or many more.

We should not put pressure on teenagers and support them in every situation whether they fail or pass because failure is just a part of life and we should not take it as a big deal. We should be supportive towards our teenagers and help them. Everyone wants their future happy and teenagers are our future. We have to make them happy by supporting them. Because supporting them make them happy. It is also like a mental health therapy.
