Usia remaja - ialah usia percubaan untuk lari dari alam kanak-kanak dan cuba menerobos masuk ke alam dewasa. Usia remaja, akal kita berfikir dengan fantasi zaman kanak-kanak dan realiti orang dewasa. Ingin cuba menjadi dewasa, tetapi sebenarnya tidak. Ingin tidak menjadi kanak-kanak, tetapi tetap bukan dewasa. Inilah remaja. Usia emas yang selalu memerangkap.
Kalau kita masih remaja - berhati-hatilah. Memang semuanya indah. Indah bukan kerana sesuatu itu indah. Indah kerana penglihatan kita dikaburkan dengan bayang-bayang keseronokan.
Kalau kita mempunyai anak remaja, juga berhati-hatilah. Jangan anggap mereka dewasa dengan memberikan kebebasan tanpa batas. Jangan juga dianggap mereka terlalu kanak-kanak dengan kawalan tanpa noktah.

THREE teenage girls confessed that they were willing to have sex with men for as little as RM5 or some syabu, reported Metro Ahad.
Alin, a 17-year-old Johorean confessed to the Malay daily that she had been involved in this sexual activity since she was 16.
“At first, I was only sleeping with my boyfriend. Then he told his friends about me and I became popular among his friends,” Alin said.
“One guy would act as a ‘pimp’ to gather all the schoolmates who want to sleep with me. I charged RM5 per person.”
“I have ‘serviced’ six men in one go at the most. With the RM30, I bought a prepaid card and saved up to buy a new phone,” added Alin.
Alin became addicted to sex and would frequently play truant to go to a friend’s house for sex.
In two years she had slept with over 30 men.
“During that period, I was pregnant once but with the help of a friend I had an abortion,” said Alin.
Even though Alin admitted she was aware of the risks, she did not want to think too much about her actions as she just wanted to have fun.
Now, she has vowed to turn over a new leaf.
“Despite my troubles, I’m determined to sit for my Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM). I also want to change for my mother,” said Alin.
Two other teenage girls in Sabah were also involved in similar sexual activities.
Nurul and Lina, both 16, would offer sex for syabu as they could not afford to buy it.
“I would sleep with anyone as long as I’m given syabu,” said Nurul.
Lina, on the other hand, said that she did not mind trading sex for syabu as the most important thing was that she had fun.
