    day the land was covered in a haze of mist as the sun sucked upthe last drop of moisture out of the earth. The family sat down in

    despair, waiting and waiting.

    Question 23 32

    Read the following interview with a few teenagers on the other causes of stress among

    teenagers. Then, complete the following tasks.

    Tan Ling Ling , Student, SM Sg. Muda

    Yes, I suffer from stress, The problem iscaused by teachers who put us under a lot

    of pressure. First, there is a lot ofhomework given every day by nearly every

    teacher who enters the classroom. Inaddition to that, we are loaded with project

    work for nearly every subject. All thesehave to be handed in by certain deadlines.Almost all week we stay back after school

    to participate in games and otherextracurricular activities which arecompulsory. Then there is home tuition to

    attend. We have hardly any time at all torelax and enjoy ourselves.

    Mansor, 17, School leaver

    Peer pressure is yet another factor that isresponsible for stress among teenagers.

    Teenagers are extremely sensitive andcrave to belong to a group. Quite often,

    they like to dress like their friends, speak acool language and exhibit group

    behaviour which is quite harmless.Sometimes, however, teenagers feel forcedto smoke, drink, take drugs because they do

    not want to feel left out by their group thatindulges in such activities. Thus, peers canextent pressure, confuse the teenager and

    make them behave in an unacceptablemanner.

    Mary James, 17, College student

    I think teenagers stress themselves out bybeing materialistic. They want to possess

    high quality, branded goods like their richfriends. Sometimes parents cannot afford tobuy designer clothes and other expensive

    items for their teenage children. Whenthese teenagers cannot keep up with their

    friends standards, they becomedisappointed and frustrated.

    Subhashini, 15, Form 111 student

    We know that the ideas, values andlifestyles of our parents are different from

    ours. My opinion is that this generation gapbetween parents and children, especiallyteenagers can cause many stressful

    situations. Life would be easy if bothparties accept, understand and respect these

    differences. However, as I see it very oftenthe parents criticize their childrens taste inmusic, dressing and style. This gives rise to

    misunderstanding and tension.

    If someone were to ask me to name Gods best gift to man, I would readily say it isthat of speech. I arrived at this conclusion rather unexpectedly, not after months of

    dogged research but after a seven-day period of utter silence. Consumption of the wrongfood, overwork and too many hours staring at the computer to meet deadlines all

    contributed to the no-voice malady. The first to notice my condition were those closest tome. I could no longer bother to nag them into submission. In the event that I wanted tovoice my displeasure over something that was done not quite the way it should have been,

    they would innocently wave their hands and say, We cannot hear you!

    Next, and with great agony, I was made to understand the meaning of frustration. Icouldnt speak so I couldnt express what I meant and this led to a number of exasperatingsituations. The char koay teow man thought I was dumb as in stupid when I could not

    answer his questions. The lychee seller cheated me by mixing bad lychees with the badones as I couldnt argue. My lovesick dog ran out of the gate because I couldnt call out toit.

    My voice is crucial to my job and desperate situations call for desperate measures.

    Although, not one for traditional medicine, I had no choice but to run to the Chinese

    herbalist for his reputed cure for hoarse throats after everything else had failed. I saw himwrite a long list of ingredients. Not understanding a word he wrote, I imagined my

    condition must be terribly serious to warrant the huge amount of dried leaves, bark,cicadas, fuzzy bees and other creepy crawlies dispensed. Seeing the horror on my face,

    the herbalist triumphantly wrapped the foul stuff in brown paper. He warned me that Iwould stand to lose my voice altogether if I failed to take all that he had prescribed.

    Hurrying home, I immediately inspected the brown packages. If I had heardcorrectly, the herbalist told me to add four bowls of water to what he had given me and to

    boil it till one bowl of fluid was left. I searched the kitchen cabinet and was faced with anew problem. Which type of bowl did he mean? There were Chinese porcelain bowls with

    pictures of ruddy-cheeked children playing ping-pong, Japanese rice bowls for nightswhen we decided to go Japanese, plastic bowls for picnics and lastly, good, old, sturdymelamine bowls.

    All the bowls on the shelf seemed to scream, Choose me, choose me. Finally, Ithought that since he was a Chinese herbalist, he probably must have meant a Chinese

    porcelain bowl. I boiled the foul-smelling concoction day and night. The whole housestank. The children, however, had a wonderful time inspecting the creepy crawlies. They

    looked really fascinating, all dried up with their innards removed, their feet curled up likecurly fries. With religious fervour, I drank the potion at the recommended hours. Such

    was my unquestioning obedience that the last strands of rationalism and scientific logicwere dispelled.

    With a heavy heart, I awaited the return of my voice. The first thing I did when Iwoke up each day was to believe that I could say hello to myself out loud again. Sadly I

    could only manage a croak. Believe me, I felt like a toad! Then as if by an assimilation ofimages, the toad reminded me of the anguish I had felt sometime back. I was aware then

    that I lacked grace and tolerance and had a temper that was, at most times, short.

    My last birthday wish was to appreciate others more and my wish was granted in

    my days of silence. My condition made me more appreciative of others. I also becamemore graceful. How I appreciated the one who awoke in the night to give me warm water

    to ease my congested lungs. How I appreciate the little hands that thumped my back tohelp clear my airway of phlegm.

    Most of all, I learnt the meaning of grace: the grace not to reply in anger, the gracenot to criticise when expectations are not met, the grace to know that without a voice, I

    am as imperfect as anyone else.
