Morals And Values In Today's Society

Updated on May 26, 2013

The morals and values of today's society have really changed .

For an example;

The younger generation have little respect for elders, their parents or authority figures which leads to a higher crime rate among our children .

This is the reason there is no respect for others belongings, and people take what they want instead of asking for it.

The reason the morals and values are like they are in today's society , is because the parents do not take the time to teach their children, to show respect to their elders or to show respect for others.

They are not taught the value of family. so instead the children are spoiled with material belongings which puts the parents in a position of having to by them what they want regardless of the cost this instills lack of morals and greed in our children.

The rate of teen pregnancy is a lot higher and the number of women being pregnant without being married is higher than it was in years past.

The lack of morals has led to the violence and the drug use by society today .

I believe that this stems from the type of programing that our youth are watching on television today and they are using the characters on television , and musicians as role models rather than their parents.

Another reason for the lack of morals and values is both parents have to work, due to the shape of our economy which leaves the children without proper guidance and allowing them to learn from bad examples .

There are a lot of young parents that are into partying and so they do not supervise their children and they run lose getting into trouble .

We need to instill better morals in our children and teach our youth the family values to do this we need to start spending quality time with our children, and monitor what our children are watching on television.

We should spend more family time with our children either playing games , planting a garden , or helping with their school work.

We could teach children better morals and values by being a good role model for our children .

We need to take more time with our children so we can teach them the morals and values that we were raised with by our parents .

If we don't start teaching good morals and values to today generation what will society become in the future , because we have to teach them to our children so they can teach them to their children.

This is a problem in today's society that can be changed by the care and understanding of parents.

If we would teach the children about to have better morals and values , n.the world would be a better and safer place to live i

      I only have to look at newspapers from the past or remember when I was young and my parents talk about how bad things were getting to realise that the range of moral behaviour is as wide now as it's always been. Marriage, in its modern official sense is a relatively recent phenomina: in centuries past many people became common law married by co-habiting and gradually being recognised as man and wife. Most people don't save and the poorest among us have generally had less stable lives - the consequent increase in crime and what seems to us immoral behaviour among them only reflects the fact that the population of the poorest is always increasing and we don't notice it so much when the crime statistics improve.

      I see families raising their children and wanting the best for them: most parents want to pass on the best of themselves to the kids. People often lead their lives in different ways to the way our parents or grandparents used to: there is more variety and less embarrassment in how people live but morality is still there: plenty of youths are interested in the environment, in 'global warming', in 'animal rights', in world hunger: these are all idealisms based on morality. And when you look at small communities, most people are interested in the same things our parents were: in being safe, in having their kids live a nice life and having enough money to support their family. People will continue to have children and parents will continue to want to pass on the best of themselves.

      We might look at other parents and think of them being feckless, uncouth, rough and passing on bad habits to their children but these people have always been with us: they may look unrefined to us but they have their own morality; just not quite the same as ours.
