They are often viewed as a form of rebellion against societal and parental constraints, offering young people an opportunity to engage in risky behaviors.
The Role Of Parenting And Education
However, some see these parties as a reflection of the neglect of teenagers’ needs by society and parents.
In an interview with a local publication, Dr. Mhlanga, a commentator on the issue, believes that teenagers are rebelling against an education system that does not provide them with opportunities to explore their full potential.
He suggests that it is crucial for parents and society to actively listen to the needs of young people and allocate resources to support their growth and development.
