1. DECLINING OF MORAL VALUES IN YOUTH2. Meaning Of Moral Value “Moral values are those traits against which people measure right and wrong. They go far beyond such things as intelligence and education and talent. Moral values come from example and from working and living together.”3. Youth is the future wealth of a country ¾ of a country’s Population is youth. Youth constitute age group of 15 -35.4. They possess the energy and power not only to destroy burning spheres of fire or erupting volcanoes, but also the embodiment of love and affection.5. Now a day’s many young teenagers are grow up without values. The decline of values among youth have increase in crime and violence, sexual activities and drug abuse.6. The confusion and blind belief of this period can also lead to the early formation of trauma and other deep problems.7. The critical thing here is to learn a sense of right and wrong, good and bad. The Modeling Period Between the ages of eight and thirteen, we copy people, often our parents, but also other people.8. We may be much impressed with religion or our teachers. The Socialization Period Between 13 and 21, we are very largely influenced by our peers.9. The question of retaliation when scolded by our parents or elders never arises in our minds. We used to greet our elders, parents and teachers with love and humbleness.10. Youths of today lack manners and discipline. They raise their voice and retaliate when scolded by their parents and teachers. Some of them greet their teachers even with punches or stones.11. For example, a few years back, there was a lot of hue and cry about a case involving some students beating their teacher on some matter. Its true that youths are a reckless lots- always wanting to experiment new things, taste new things.12. They need a firm grip or hold, a brake type. And this is possible only by imbibing moral or value education- which is very much lacking in our present scenario.13. In some schools, the subject moral science is there. But the way it has been taught just as a light subject-question and answer type- the whole approach is not right. Teachers and students, both, take the subject lightly as it is not included in the board exam.14. But no one has considered the importance and value of this subject- how it will help a student, or an individual for that matter, in the long run.15. It will help the youths to listen to their inner voice- the conscience. And they will hesitate and have second thoughts before committing a wrong deed, say stealing lying, cheating and such.16. Moral education should be made compulsory in all schools. We can’t say that the personality of a youth or an individual is complete, just because he is well educated until and unless the knowledge of moral value is there in his education.17. Parents, elders and teachers should try to impart education to the youths. Organizing seminars and workshops based on moral or value educations, especially for the youths have become a must.18. At that workshop, we discussed about the problems of youths, the causes of their moral degradation and how to solve it. how it the name of modernization, youths are degrading their behavior, their conduct using alcohols, drugs, substances and such.19. Then the problem of pre- marital sex, its consequences- unwanted pregnancies, abortions, spreading of diseases, STD, HIV and AIDS, and in all, their moral downfall.20.
