Every parent believes that their child is in a better position of taking care of themselves after completing high school and joining college or university. The parent usually believes that the child is better placed to face the many challenges and get even more responsible. If one would ask the current generation of youth about what they go through in their day to day lives, some would tell you that what they have done and been through cannot be revealed to their parents for some would die before the story is complete.
How many parents are aware that some of their daughters have ended up in strip clubs and the streets as prostitutes so as to make an extra coin to sustain them? When one gets to an institution especially ladies, the first weeks and months are the very first moments when most of them have sexual intercourse and get into drugs and substance abuse. Most of the students who have been in those institutions for a longer period are fond of taking advantage of the fresher’s and the first weeks are said to be the week of getting hooked up with a fresher. ‘Angukia freshee’ is the slogan.
The new students are usually abandoned immediately after their senior comrades have sexually advanced on them and with the need to look better and modern, most of them especially ladies irrespective of their backgrounds usually try to adapt to the ways that other college and university ladies dress and behave. Most of them leave on Friday and get back to their hostels on Sunday. Majority of them from the cities flock the clubs and streets to look for clients who would give them money in exchange of sex.
Many at times youth especially the ones in universities and colleges would ask for financial support from their parents to attend educational trips which according to most of the youth it is the only opportunity for them to enjoy fully. For instance; some ladies from a well renowned college were on a trip in Mombasa and due to their ignorance they were raped at a popular public beach by the beach boys who usually pretend to be teaching the local tourists how to swim but in turn advance forcibly their sexual desires especially on ladies.
Some parents are not aware that most of their children have been victims of circumstances of drugs and substance abuse. Both ladies and men of this generation are fond of taking alcohol whenever it is available. On weekends both genders flock clubs and pubs to drink to their favourite drinks and some do inject themselves with what they refer to as the hard staffs. Bhang and cigarette smoking is very common too and most of the time you will find so many of them blacking out in the streets and corridors of the town and institutions.
On academics, most of them would read when exams are closer for even in most scenarios lectures are usually ignored at the expense of lunch dates and alcohol. So many youngsters would prefer to go to lectures when they have nothing to do or when they are out to meet some comrades who are already working and well placed to do for them favours who mostly are on part time basis.
