How do young people spend their time?
It is during youth that we have the most energy to thrive to the fullest. However, due to technological advances and social networks, young people spend more time entertaining themselves and very rarely learning. Even in class, three out of five students are constantly online on several social networks. A minute library is transformed into an instant Facebook – Twitter – Instagram, because the wi-fi network works too well. A young person devoting himself to revisions early, begins to grab his phone and scroll (term used on Facebook) publications for over an hour. Or, he takes the remote control and plays all the chains and lingers on a movie. Others hear their friends whistling and get ready to go out, dance and drink. These same young people, in fact, cannot concentrate more than 10 minutes on their notebooks, but can spend an hour surfing the net, watching TV or drinking.
During youth, it is certainly necessary to have fun, but it is also the time to cultivate. It is easier for our young brain to assimilate than for an adult brain.
