In the end, what do they achieve or gain?"Will it make them more academically inclined, improve their character or upbringing?"You should shed tears when you did not do well in your studies, or shed tears when you are rewarded for your hard work in the national examinations and not because you were not able to catch a glimpse of your pretty-face celebrities."It makes no sense at all."Instead of engaging in meaningful activities that will help in character moulding (since they are adolescents) they cried just because they cannot see a handsome or pretty face!"With this sort of mentality right now I cannot imagine what kind of mindset they will have when they grow up."Maybe they will only grow physically."
