The Prince of Wales reacted to the increasing level of youth violence by admitting “enough is enough” and calling on the experts to “make a dent in this enormous problem.”
Teaming up with his son, Harry, Charles stated that such incidents were harming a lot of families and the authorities must come up with more practical ideas to fight the issue at hand.
He also demanded more constructive activities to be introduced to young people so that they can channel their energy during adolescence in a much better manner. Vocational education was one of such activities suggested during the discussion.
Charles and Harry also listened to over dozens of specialists as they opened up about their personal as well as professional experience of youth violence.
“This is a thing which seems unacceptable, frankly. We should say enough is enough. This time, we are really going to make a dent in this for the sake of so many young and so many families. That should be our aim.”
