Don't take away our childhood

Childhood has been described as the happiest stage of life, free from worries and full of fun. But in such a competitive society as ours, this is no longer true.

your say

Remember, there is always hope

I am writing in response to the Young Post editorial on the Letters Page May 24. I truly appreciate the editor's deep concern about Hong Kong's younger generation. The article was very touching and contained some timely advice.

Save comparisons for yourself

As students, we all have the responsibility to study hard. But no matter what results we get, as long as we feel we have fulfilled this responsibility, it is fine. It is common for students to compare their marks after exams. But I don't do this as I believe they are unnecessary.

Youth not to blame for consoles landfill

Environmental groups recently warned that outdated games consoles are adding to the problem of overflowing landfills ('Outdated games consoles add to waste woes', April 20, SCMP). Hongkongers lay blame on teenagers, but I think it is not fair.

Do it for yourself

Some people say the most important thing in a competition is beating others, but I disagree.

I believe the purpose of participating in competitions is to challenge yourself. You can learn a lot about yourself and learn how to improve.

If you have won before, then you should challenge yourself to do better.

Volunteering is beneficial to all

I recently volunteered to visit underprivileged families and distribute groceries.

The most memorable experience was visiting an old woman who had recently lost her husband.

Make the most of the time you have

Every time I look at my kindergarten graduation photo, I think: 'Time has gone so fast.'

As time stands still for no one, we should all try to make a difference in this world right now - maybe by doing something meaningful or helpful for other people.

If we don't do these things when we are young, we may not have the chance later in life.

Learn from the past

History comprises a record of past events. They can be happy or sad, embarrassing or enjoyable.

We should learn from history so that we don't repeat the same mistakes.

Some people say we should forget history and go in a new direction.

Be patient and calm

When I was a child I dreamed of becoming a social worker. I always felt proud when I was able to help someone in need.

As I grow up I have discovered that helping people is not as easy as I once thought.

Confident and successful

You need confidence to stand up in front of the class when you give a presentation.

You need to be brave to apologise if you offend someone and you need courage to face the next exam if you have got an unsatisfactory result.

We face challenges every day. Some are easy to deal with, while others are harder to face.

Harness the power of words for good

The world's greatest weapon is not a gun or bomb - it's our mouth. Conflicts often arise because of some ill-chosen words directed at a person or group.

What we say can make our relationship with others good or bad.

Something said with malice can cause hard feelings, frustrate people, break up friendships or even lead to violence.

Respect is a crucial part of everyday life

When you are talking, do you want others to respect and listen to you? I do. I think everyone does.

I think if I have other people's attention, I will be more confident.

If you respect others, they, too, will feel more confident.

Treasure your loved ones

An inconceivable tragedy has occurred in my family. My dad went to hospital and had a general check-up recently.

The outcome was a terrible shock. The doctor said that my dad had a malignant tumour in his brain and he may die from it.

I didn't like my dad previously. I was always arguing with him.
