Influence of relation on young adults
Young age period is the most fragile time period of anyone’s life. This time period plays a vital role to determine right path in one’s life. The influence of family in anyone’s life is the most important factor in the overall development of the person. However, the importance of influence of friends also cannot be overlooked on the young adults as by this time people have started making their friends circle, enjoying their company and being guided by their opinion/attitude and decisions.
I believe the friends have more influence on young adults rather than the family. Young adults are in that stage of life where they are studying in colleges/universities and thus are in the company of friends most of the time. They spend maximum time together as they study together, play together, party together and talk/chat with their friends even they are at home. At this age they are involved with friends more than they are with family and thus its obvious that friends are having more influence than family.
To further substantiate my view, i would like to give an example of the trend among young adults that i have noticed/seen in my country. In my country majority of young adults chose foreign country as their first priority for further studies and put their best effort for it at least once. This trend has been noticed mainly among those students who have a group of friend circle who are trying to go to aboard for further studies. If 2-3 people in the circle try for it, other people of the group also follow the same. Such trends are quite apparent in our country and this supports the agenda that friends are the most important influence on young adults.
However, the family upbringing of any person may change this view. If the family of any person is attentive, careful, concerned and involved in most of their child’s decision, the family holds the most influential position in his/her life. But if the family doesn’t spend much time together and is not involved much in their child’s life, the family’s influence is likely to be less important than others. However, such relation in the family has to be developed since childhood.
