that one of the ways to solve the problems is to ask for someone’s help. But
teenagers usually would not like anybody to know their problems. Then they

help me? I can't choose my future profession. I will pass my exams next year,
but I don't know who I'll become. My parents want me to become an economist or
a doctor. Bur these professions are not interesting for me. I would like to
become an actor or a traveler, or a journalist. My parents consider these
professions are very dangerous and not for woman. And I don't know what I must
do: to obey my parents or choose a profession myself? Please help me and give
to answer your question at once. I think every person has a right to choose a
profession. I'm sure your parents wish you all the best; they want you to have
respectable profession which will bring you good money. But I think you mustn't
obey your parents and choose a profession yourself. You must like your future
profession and you must enjoy it. I hope you can make your own right choice.
I have a
problem and I need your advice. Two month ago I went to a new school and it's
difficult for me to study here. First of all the school program in this school
is much more difficult than in my former school and I have bad marks on
Russian, English, Algebra and it worries me very much. I'm in a new class now
and it's not always easy to get along with my classmates. I have nobody to talk
to and discuss any news. In comparison with my previous school I have too much
homework now and sometimes I haven't time to prepare for all lessons. I feel so
lonely. I need your advice because I don't know what to do.
understand your problem and I'll try to help you. Yes, you are right. The
school programs in some schools are very difficult. But it's difficult for all
pupils of any class. You'll get used soon to it. You have a possibility to
correct your marks.
I think you
should be surer and less shy. You can begin a discussion yourself. In some
classes pupils are very friendly and sociable. You can invite your classmates
to visit you. Yes, I agree with you. Nowadays pupils have much homework. If you
want to get good marks, you must begin to do your homework at once after
more important for you: success at school or walk with your friends? I think
it's very difficult to study well and have a lot of free time. You should be
patient, hardworking. You can overcome all the difficulties.
help me? In general I don't have a time to do many things. I don't have enough
time to rest, do homework and walk with my friends because I stay with my
younger brother. My mother and father work very hard and I often take care of
my brother at home. I'm very tired.

problems every day.

wrong with you, you're hardworking and responsible. All those things are a
definite plus. You are a bit more mature than your mates. Those are the things
to be proud of. But let your parents know that you need them to help you.
Probably they give you some time for having a rest at the weekend.
able to go for a walk with your friends. I'm sure everything will be OK.
I can't define
which kind of job I will choose in my future. I tried to find courses or
psychologist to solve this problem, but I couldn't find them, I tried to find
the appropriate job. In my school I didn't find my favorite lesson. Do you
think something wrong with me or I did something wrong when I looked for job?
Can you help me?
Dear Slava, I know your problem. Many
teenagers in your age think about
it. Nothing's wrong with you. You're
a normal teenager who can not choose the future job. If you do not have favorite lesson, think about
your hobbies. Think about things that you enjoy to listen
to about. Think about your favourite books and films. Ask your parents about
many attending-grabbing professions and one of
them will be yours. Frankly speaking, it is too early to think about it. You're just 14. I think
you will choose a good job and you will be a succesful person.
advice will help you. Good luck.
