Etymologically. other hand, are deviant and allegiances, Morality derived behaviours. The word vice is a depend a bility, from the Latin word derivative of the Latin word accountability, dignity, moralitas, which Vitium, which means "defect integrity not been means "manners," or failing." Broadly speaking, judgemental, not been a character," or "proper vice simply means an cheat, keeping to a promise, behaviour." It can be a body immoral activity or bad habit. courage etc. of principles or standards. Some clear examples of gotten from a code of moral or proper behaviour.

Social vices are extremely conduct, either from a are: truthfulness, diligence, found among young people; particular religion, culture or obedience, kindness, notable examples found philosophy. Vices, on the honesty and sincerity, loyalty across the globe are: indecent dressing, examination malpractice, bullying, pre-marital relationships, prostitution, homosexuality, hooliganism, drug addiction, armed robbery, smoking, cultism, rape, and many more. All the aforementioned are not only gravious, but also extremely unhealthy and disastrous to our society and are therefore important factors that widely influence the value systems and ethics of a student to be positive or negative are: family, school, peer groups, sex, age, and society and culture.

A student's moral growth and development depend solely on the family. Every acceptable good habit of a child is termed morals and the bad are his or her defect; thus, the establishment of such mysteries of positive or negative value systems in a student is through the rejection or acceptance of the student's various actions by the parent.

The academic environment also contributes to the morals of a student. For instance, a student's notion of positive and negative value can be largely influenced by his or her relationship with classmates, seniors and even teachers.

An old adage says "show me your friend, and I will tell you who you are." Students also search for befitting companions to play with: these chosen companions extremely influence the good or bad attributes displayed by them. Biblically, it is stated that bad company ruin good morals (1Corinthians 15: 33). This is one important reason why good morals must be promoted among children and young people in general, as it does not only build character, but also enables them differentiate right from wrong, changes their perception about the world, determines their behaviour at adult stage, help them adapt their self-confidence and teaches them how to be considerate towards others.

The essence of proper behaviour cannot be over emphasized among young people, as the effects of the vices are disastrous, not only to the lives of the persons involved, but also to their relations, community members and the human society as a whole. Social vices tarnish the image of an individual, his or her family, school and country. Social vices can also lead to illness, disease, injury and even death of a person. In addition, social vices can break homes and relationships. They can actually terminate the peace and joy enjoyed in a family.

Consequently, social vices. must be discouraged in through a number of society. This can be achieved measures, some of which are outlined below. Students or young people should be educated on the dangers of vices. Parents should closely monitor their children's activities, academic performance, and even the kind of company (friends) they keep. Parents should also bring up their children in the cultures, norms and values of the society. Students and young people caught in depraved acts should be severely punished.

There should be rehabilitation for those who are addicted. Finally, and most importantly, student should be exposed thoroughly to the word of God.
