The rest, she goes on, are broken homes, single parenting, access to the internet and peer pressure.
According to Stacy, some of these factors are beyond the control of the youth who are affected while others fall within their scope of control.
In her opinion, some of the Ghanaian youths are acting in ways their forefathers could not act.
These actions, she explains, eventually have negative consequences on those involved.
The youth of Ghana, according to Stacy, are those that fall within the age ranges of 18 and 40 years.
This, she notes, however excludes those who are married, but fall within the specified age range.
