There are 15 million unemployed young men in Arab communities.  The youth unemployment rate in Jordan has traditionally been much higher than other countries. In the past ten years, the rate has stayed around 23 percent.  There has been a recent increase in the popular belief that unemployment is the fault of the individual and not a societal problem.  However, youth unemployment has also been attributed to increased pressure on service sectors that typically employ more youth in Jordan.  Youth unemployment has led to later and later ages of marriage in Jordan, which some view as one of the most important consequences of the phenomenon.  Another consequence experienced in Jordan is increased mental health problems. 
like we did in the demonstration, sandwich your "No" between
100% honest, positive statements. Do your best to talk about
your feelings speak from your heart. For example,
love being your friend, and I value our friendship. And I
feel angry when you smoke. I don't want to lose you. I want
us both to live for a very long time."
Dad, thanks for taking me to the game last Saturday. I had a
great time with you. And you know, I get afraid when I
see you smoking. I need you to live a long time. I love you,
Dad." The key is to express what you are really feeling.
that dinner you made last night was great! And I feel sad when
you smoke. I really love you, and I need you so much!
Honest complements motivate people Try a complement like this one: "Dad, you're wise and responsible. I'm sure you'll quit smoking whenever you get ready, and when you get around to it. I feel happy when I remind myself, of course you'll make a smart choice about tobacco! I have so much faith in you I just think you're the greatest, Dad!" In this last example, you didn't nag your Dad, or even ask him to quit. Instead, you told your Dad only genuine and positive things. (If these don't fit you, try to find complements that are genuine and honest.) This last example follows the slightly more advanced formula described just below, in "What Parents Can Do" except now you're using this idea on your parents! In summary, whatever you do, don't be a nag about anyone's addiction to smoking. Remember, you only get to ask parents to quit three times a year. But you do get to be a daily pest about second hand smoke in the house, because that hurts you.
