  1. we think that the young people were very misterious because they have many attitude that can’t be understood such as runaway,negative thinking and rape….
    so we think the solution are :
    -as a parent we have to know friend’s of our childrens
    -take care about their studying
    -teach them a lot about islam and buy some books for them
    such as “how to form a pray” and “recite a quran”
