The effects of indiscipline among the youth are manifold. Indiscipline is defined as a lack of discipline. Some of the effects of indiscipline among the youth include lack of respect for teachers, parents and other senior figures. It could be argued that the indiscipline of certain individuals has reduced the morality and ethics of many young people.
The effect of the downfall in morals and ethics are caused, in part, by the education of the young people, in that teachers are no longer responsible for setting limits, merely for ensuring that certain targets are met. As discipline is no longer present, the lack of discipline does not present any sense of shame as the indiscipline is not tied to immorality anymore.
The lack of guidance given to young people means that the conduct they show is not an important facet of their lives anymore. General consensus is that the values that have influenced morality are instilled inside the family, and that it is improved family values that will reverse the current trend.
Most young people today believe in having things their own way. If they don’t get their own way then they often go off the rails. Parents seem more afraid of children and they do not seem to realise that by constantly giving in to their demands they are making them uncontrollable and undisciplined. Indiscipline is classed as a behavioral disorder and is the cause of mental, emotional, and in some cases, physical damage. Some would argue that parents, teachers and society should shoulder some of the blame for the indiscipline currently evident amongst today’s youth.
Parents may be to blame as they give their children too much freedom, whereas teachers could be to blame for not focusing on things that the child is good at. Society is also to blame as the current education system does not prepare a child for employment. The curriculum is so varied that children are not gaining enough practical knowledge.

Growing Indiscipline Among Students.
A burning issue in the society nowadays.
Indiscipline or lack of discipline among students is something that’s affecting the society. The use of abusive language , disrespect towards teachers, free fighting in educational institutions, insisting on copying in the examination, ragging, strikes by students, etc.can be commonly seem among students.The future seems dark.
Unfortunately, it is a pity that the students of today waste their precious time in acts of indiscipline. But we cannot blame the students alone for this growing indiscipline There are many other causes of indiscipline like the lack of attention from parents , pressure from friends or peer pressure, absence of value based education, lack of a good role model , our defective educational system- where too much stress is given only on the completion of the textbooks within allotted time. As teachers are under pressure of completion of the textbooks they just stop to give moral education to their students. As a result, character formation becomes secondary, last but not the least the excessive use of electronic gadgets like using mobile phones , laptops all day for just games or unnecessary work which is also medically unfit for the students.The worst aspect of this problem is that they are very often misled by political leaders who use them as their tools for creating disorder.Students should be kept away from the dirty life of cities.
Youth is the future of any country . Excess of everything is bad. Indiscipline can spoil a student’s future. Indiscipline among students may lead to lack of self-control, disrespect of authority figures, including parents, have no understanding of appropriate behaviour, students are selfish, unpleasant, and unhappy, and lack empathy, patience, and the ability to share and make friends. They are also more likely to harm themselves and others through negative behaviour.
Hence, the problem of indiscipline and unrest among students is a part of a much bigger problem viz. reconstruction of our country’s educational system. But what can be done? The system needs to be overhauled and made to suit the needs of the time and Indian conditions of life.Parental guidance and strictness, moral education, having a good role model and many more efforts can be done to control the situation. It is usually said: “spare the rod and spoil the child”.
