An interesting study came up with interesting results recently. It claims that instability in students (between the ages of 15-25) may be a reason for engaging in risky bed behavior.

When the lives of teenagers are unstable, it may impact their bed life and the irrational decisions that they make in their romantic lives.
Also, as most of the students move out of their parents' homes and stay far away, they get the freedom to act at whims and their erratic decisions may go unnoticed.

Teenagers and risky sexual practices are related according to a new research. This study says that this kind of behaviour is common among students who drop out or students who see lots of transitions or undesirable changes in their personal lives.

Though the study was conducted on hundreds of young men and women below the age of 21, health experts warn that even people around the age of 25 are prone to be on the wrong side if their lives are unstable.

Basically, parents of such students may have to be alert especially if kids are staying far away from home. Also, as the instability factor has a role in it, parents may have to ensure that their children get their emotional and moral support especially when their lives go unstable either due to bad performance in academics or any other reason.

Certain mistakes may affect the entire life of a person and this is why parents may have to stay alert when their children go through rough patches during college life.
