Do you believe the younger generations are getting worse and worse nowadays?
Interpret this question as you wish. Generally I am thinking about attitude and behavior. It seems to me that many people DO feel that youth are getting worse in this regard.
I think that are merely repeating what has been there before. We aren't getting worse. The only difference is that what used to remain hidden in the past generations is no longer hidden thanks to mass media. In the words of scripture, "There is nothing new under the sun"
not in the least. if anything, parents are worse then they used to be so their kids come across as being poorly behaved. if a parent can't find time to nuture their kids, the kids will find other ways to live life.
Every generation has faced this situation. Whoever is old they feel that today's youngsters are not good.
When we were young, we got the stick from our elders. Now when we become old we think the same way as that of our elders. Today's youngsters when they become old will also feel the same way. Its more of a perception than reality.
It's quite nice to hear people disagree with the point of view put forth in the question. I feel like I read so many articles that make passing comments about the worsening and expectant attitude of youth, and people just seem to accept it. I wholeheartedly agree that nothing much changes over the younger generations in terms of behavior, but rather that there is a cycle msivakumar described. I also agree with ronhi that social networking and the media have seemingly augmented the flaws in society in people's eyes, so that they assume the youth are getting worse than when they were that age.
Yes i do, Kids these days have less respect then what they did when i was a child
KIDS OF TODAY HAVE NO SELF LOVE OR RESPECT FOR THEM AND OTHERS,ALSO THE BLACK YOUTH I SENSE AND OBSERVE IS THAT THEY WANT INSTANT GRATIFICATION. IM 44 YEARS OLD AND WHAT I SEE IN MY COMMUNITY IS DRUG SELLING AND GUNS ITS REAL,AND THESE KIDS MAJORITY PICTURE MAKING MONEY QUICK IS SELLING DOPE. YOU CAN GO IN ANY NEIGHBORHOOD WALK UP THE STREET AND SEE LITTLE CARTELS IS WHAT I CALL THEM SELLING DOPE, THEY MISS THE REAL PURPOSE OF LIFE. WHICH IS LOVE THYSELF, SEEK KNOWLEDGE AND GROW AS A HUMAN BEING. TO YOUR QUESTION? ITS GETTING WORSE! THE BLACK YOUTH NEED SERIOUS HELP!
Yep! This society has cultivated a culture of immediacy, mediocrity, doing things that require less work and opting for the easy way out.
We don't challenge our kids enough, we give them all A's even though they don't know diddly squat, we push them through school – despite their not being prepared – so schools can keep their funding and ranking for graduating students in a decent amount of time, and we encourage them to come up with ingenious ways to post a video on YouTube, get a trillion followers and become famous.
And let's not talk about the entertainment industry; this is the only industry where you don't have to have a degree! Very clear why this is the devil's playground.
So with all this ease and mediocrity at everyone's disposal, why work hard? But if we continue at this rate, things are only going to get worse.
Not at all! I think if parents weren't so busy all the time and actually spent time with their teen, relating to them and letting them express themselves as they truly are without ridicule and judgement they will realize a lot of it is a phase, you've got a really great kid at the core of the person. Show them you love them no matter what, do something one on one with them that they like. My son and I went and saw Logan Wolverine (my boy is 16) and we had a blast! I let him use his colorful language to express himself as long as he's not disrespectful because I know it will pass and I want to know the real him- not some fake version that he thinks I want him to be. He respects that, and now he comes and shares things with me about his friends, and what they do. I don't always like it, but I like that he knows he can call me anytime if he doesn't like what's going down and I'll be there without an iron fist or a lecture and I never embarrass him around his friends. Parents aren't available enough for their kids like they used to be. Everyone is so busy being important that they are forgetting what is really important. If you're child died tomorrow, would you regret not spending enough time with them? There's your answer.
