You will find that there are many people who try hard to work in this society in order to get the recognition from their parents. But many of them could not be successful and they would therefore turn to drugs and other kinds of teenage problems.
They think that they could not get the love from their parents and they could only try to find love from peers. They would not want to be hurt so they would try to hurt the others instead. They think that love could not be maintained for a long period of time so they would decide to have casual sex and love with the others. All these problems are troubling the society indeed.
While parents are blamed for failing to teach their kids, parents would say that it is the fault of the society. They may think that problem comes because both of them have to work in order to earn a living for the family.
No people could stay at home and things would happen on their kids and they would not behave well. And some may say that their kids want to earn money for shopping so they sell drugs and there is no problem regarding parents.
But after watching this movie, parents may be inspired. As you may know, this movie would feature many teenagers who are wealthy. They do not have the problems of money but they still try to do those things such as drug taking. The reason is that family love is not felt by these people. They might have a perfect childhood indeed. But when they gradually grow up, parents could not figure out a proper way to communicate with them. As a result, these teenagers would lose their direction and these teenagers would try to use things such as drugs to hide themselves from the reality.
