Young people have also some duties like house chores, studying, they have to obey their parents..... Education is compulsory from 6 to 16, then you can choose what do you want to do, if you want to continue in your studies or find a job. Nowadays, many children know, how important are their studies for their future life and they often decide to finish their secondary education and then start the higher on universities and colleagues.

One of the most important influence on young people is influence of their friends. Friends are great value in the lives of young people. They are used to getting together, usually according to same or similar attitudes and views. They share their opinions,experiences and feelings between each other, they help each other. On the other hand, there are also human beings which were detached from the social group and they grow up as outsiders, which can have a great influence on their mental condition, social behaving and general view on human relationships.
Many of young people, especially teenagers have some conflicts with their parents. Young people became more revolutionary and they often critize their parent´s conservative lifestyle. The complain that they dont have enough freedom, that parents interfere too much into their bussiness. The dont like when their parents criticize their friends, clothes or hairstyle. They think parents are underestimate them, and they also complain that they dont have enough pocket money, or that they are not allowed to come home later.
On the other hand, parents and generaly older generation think that they are rude, impolite, use rude, abusing language, they dont study enough and have bad marks. Then they complain that youth generation dont respect older generation and that they dont think about their future, they are irresponsible and unreliable, lazy, they listen to a deafening music and wear an awful clothes.

Parents usually dont want their child to try things like smoking or drinking. But children are curious, they´re keen on trying new things, especially those that they are not allowed to.
