Only teens can help teens. They don't see adults as sources of help.

depressed and lonely teens interacting with each other could really be a key.

But what encouragement have they got to share with each other?
where to find the next drug hit?

The problems frustrating more than depressing.

Do they have mental screening and prescribing programs in schools out there, yet?

They probably need military type camps that reward teens and go towards their CV's to help their futures.

Achievement helps people of any age feel good about themselves. watch the school shooters drop away.

Were you being sarcastic with that first sentence?

My suggestion is to take away the television and get them doing somethinf rewarding outside or volunteer with social programs-depending on the person's character.

Volunteering will come to nothing.

conscription into military training that teaches discipline, self respect and future career enhancements is what's needed in this criminal and undisciplined society.

The socialists and PC crowd have gone too far and their twisted policies leave huge voids in modern youths lives.

John Keys talks of youth boot camps. Thats a punishment. Turn that initiative into a plan for success by training youth instead of punishing them and give them incentives for the future and you'll see a generation completely turned around.

I still do not get why the military has to get involved and how this would be a different scenario that boot camp, which you were not fond of.

I have a hard time visioning military-led education as being non-socialist. They are infiltrating our University research out here an dit has become just that.

If you want dicipline why not martial arts? It would keep them healthy as well. I owe a lot to the ten years I spent doing it.

Not every one's attuned to martial arts.

But group work along with some academia bonds and achieves. Combine this with the knowledge that some would be accepted into the military, even officer training, and they would leave with a CV compiled and further referenced would add a lot more hope than what many kids are facing now.

Underachieving kids could thrive on this instead of being forced in school till 18. They could learn a lot of life lessons in the real world.

In fact if it were possible, I would like to carry out a survey with college kids and see what they thought. No one I have talked to has opposed the idea.

Michael laws didn't warm to it, but he thinks everyone is guilty.

Not everyone is attuned to the military. Martial arts not only provides dicipline, there is a spritual connection in it--a connection to one's self and intent, something that it not empasized in most of what we call reality and I am not sure the military can provide that.

Having it be an option seems fitting, which it probably already is, but are you suggesting mandating it for t he underacheivers?

You should do the survey. What sort of questions would you ask?

You seem really concerned about this. What would concern me is people's definition of underacheiving in relation to what kind of instruction they have available in the schools.

I was an under-achiever, only went to school 40% of the time but was never below a "b" average. Chances are your school systems are more challenging, but out here they just repeat the same stuff every semester and people like me get bored out of their gourd. I do have to admit that it may have been the dicipline I had from Karate that made me care enough to maintain the "B" average, but there was a part of me that was not challenged at school and wanted to forget about it altogether. I was lucky, someone in administration must have understood my conflict. Other people did not get away with the same thing, but then they never maintained a "b" average.

Obviously, you had someone overlooking you who saw outside the square.
My main point with modern youth is giving them focus and hope. This means discipline and direction. Both go hand in hand.
many teens feel very negative about themselves.
Give them something to acheive with alonside their peers and they understand their potentials.
give them something on paper that tells others that and you have grounded positive individuals.

Many teens would have a gag reflex at first and a few would try to buck the system, but many would thrive.

We used to be a military minded people and people respected each other. Many say those days are gone but the values are timeless.

I say, start with our youth and bring those values back and reward hard work instead of working to punish.

The catalyst to success from the bottom to the top.

I very much agree with you as far as youth needing focus, and I guess the structure the military provides is a far better option than most out there. I guess I cannot view it in terms of NZ because I live here, but the way I see things going here is...well, let's just say that I am extremely distrustful of all related entities. Are enlistees really protecting the citizens, or other interests-that is question that has kept me going on this dicussion with you.

My belief is that everyone needs to reconize, value, and nurture eachother's needs as well as differences while figuring out spirutually where we need to be going as individuals. This based on truly being able to know and nurture one's self. Now, the military provides enlistees with many means of living (skills,$, protection) in this reality, but I am not sure that structure of thinking can help us all interconnect-- which is some thing that is needed now more than ever. What is odd is that we are in a day and age where average world citizens are being urged to blend together while not appreciating eachother's differences. Those controling the "strings" just get off on th at. That is why, I feel, it seems like we are chasing our tails.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
