Understanding teenager’s behavior

It has now become very difficult to understand teenager’s behavior. As a parent we try our best to protect our children. We fear if they’ll fall into bad companies. So we start to suspect on every movement they take; why he is coming home late, whom does he meet, and what was he doing? The critical part is when they come to know that we are suspecting on them. That is the time they play immature and start acting like a kid; they will not eat food, they’ll become arrogant, and they’ll act emotional. It is very critical these days that we can’t even shout at them; some of them might answer you back or some might go away from home and come back later or may not come back until we request them to come back. The world has changed now, when we were kids we showed respect to our elders, we didn’t even lift our head up when our father yelled at us coz we knew they were yelling for my good. I admit that part of the changes is good. World has become more advanced; new technologies, different lifestyle, and a whole new era. It seems that, when the world was changing something along with the old world got vanished, something very important, something very valuable; it’s the respect. Respect seems to be long gone from our children’s mentality. Children have become very modern that they rely half of their lives on internet, social networking sites and many others. I believe this must be the root causes of their changing behavior. As a parent we should do our best to protect our children. But we cannot be harsh on them; we can’t yell or tell them to not meet his friends and not to do this and that. First step is to become their friend not parents, and then gradually we’ll come to understand them.

Samsung reveals new Galaxy S5 Mini

Samsung has announced the next cellular in its flagship Galaxy line of smartphones, namely the Galaxy S5 Mini.

The Mini is toned down in specs across the board, but features many of its predecessor’s features like the fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor.

“If you’re someone who wants a stylish, smaller smartphone without having to compromise on the latest features and technology, then look no further than the Galaxy S5 mini,” says Ines Van Gennip, Marketing Director at Samsung UK.

The Galaxy Mini S5 packs a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU, 1.5GB of memory, and a 4.5” super AMOLED display.

In contrast, the full-sized Galaxy S5 launched with a 2.5GHz processor, 2 gigs of RAM, and a 5.1” screen.

“As with our previous ‘mini’ devices, this latest incarnation combines the iconic design and essential features of the Galaxy S5 with a sleek and compact body. A larger screen might not work for everyone, so the Galaxy S5 mini is great for anyone after a smartphone that they can more easily slip into their pocket or bag.”

The new smartphone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and ships in four colour options: charcoal black, shimmery white, electric blue, and copper gold.

Other features of the fresh-faced blower include an 8.0-megapixel snapper, 16GB internal storage, a microSD slot (up to 64GB), and Samsung’s Ultra Power Saving mode.

The 4.5” device uses a 2,100mAh Li-Ion battery, which is unsurprisingly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S5’s 2800mAh juice-box.

The Korean firm’s latest handset is also LTE enabled, meaning you’ll be able to make use of the UK’s ever-growing 4G connectivity network.

Samsung says the device will release in Russia starting in July, with worldwide rollout to follow shortly thereafter.

Pricing and availability for the UK market has not yet been announced, although Samsung assures us the device will land in Britain at some point.
