Risky Behaviour

What is Risky Behaviour?

Teenage years can be difficult.They are typically characterised by the challenges of blending in, making mistakes, and paving their own route. Developing one's personality and exercising one's newly acquired liberties are the main goals. Teenagers can be thrill-seekers and frequently demand new experiences, which is one way in which risky behaviour shows up. As a result, when it comes to risky behaviour, the majority of teenagers are compelled to make difficult choices. Having less of a routine and more free time can sometimes lead to experimenting with behaviours and things that they would otherwise be too busy to consider. Furthermore, less productive time may imply more time spent on social media or virtual chat groups where teens may feel pressured to try new things that may be harmful for them.
