Some issues have always been there but there have been new obstacles beginning to surface in the eyes of the public .The following is the list of 10 issues facing the youth today.

Single parent household, since the 1950s, the numbers of the single parent households have significantly increased. Today, 14 million single parent homes are responsible for 28 million children. Raising a child in itself is difficult enough, no matter whether it is a single parent home or not, especially with tough economic conditions.

Drug/Alcohol Abuse, there have been times in history where every actor/actress in a movie was portrayed with a cigarette in hand, as smoking was considered cool. Today, about 21% of high school students admit drug use and 41% report drinking alcohol.

Political and Social issues, understanding what goes on around the world and finding one’s own opinion on the social and political issues is a big challenge for the youth, who struggle to differentiate between “good” and “bad” news sources and find their way in the mud of today’s world.
