Negativity, so not our thing!

hey guys em back again finally done with exams and school stuff...:)

last night i went over this massive argument with my dad about the "youth" nowadays...dad said they used to be more productive in "his days"...and i was like "no they weren't, because in your days, all they used to be productive about was about THEIR lives, not others"...he completely disagreed, saying that the youth today is very disobedient and rude, he told me that if I was the youth from "his days"..then i wouldn't have argued about this point" <roll eyes> that comment just fumed me up, and agitated i realized that i just HAD to vent everything out here!

because the question of the X generations regard for their elders doesn't merely get answered by a simple "yes" or "no"... in fact this global argument can never be fully satisfied unless we look at it from all dimensions!

Sure i do find a lot of teenagers lacking reverence for their elders, yes i witness them making rude faces behind their teachers backs, i spot many laughing their heads off upon spotting an out-sized belly of an old man. i have noticed some hiding away from their parents just to smoke a cigar or two...and i know several cases in which students never bother to follow the punitive disciplinary rules of their schools!
but is that ALL? is this enough proof to get you prejudiced about a WHOLE generation?
i dont think so!

because i don't concur to this bigoted idea of ALL the teenagers being BAD!
since i bear in mind the way every time a young school girl gives away her seat to the elderly women in the bus, the way i see several juveniles walking old people out of the old homes and into the park as a part of their "voluntary work"...i have spotted an uncountable score of youngsters who give financial support to their families by working part time alongside their studies.
moreover i have personally met many who have let go of their love lives just to accede their parents wishes of marrying "IN THE FAMILY"...the way millions of children face problems because of the petty fights and divorces their parents end up in!
similarly don't you think that the youth today knows more about their religion? don't you think they know more about their "real" culture? don't you think that they are more patriotic?

because in my opinion the youth today is so inquisitive, that they are forced to look into and study these matters instead of BLINDLY following the pre-set and fabricated rituals that are being followed by their families for centuries!

so i think JUST because the X generation is MORE spirited, MORE inquisitive and MORE aware, just because their views dont comply to that of their elders, DOESN'T mean that they are rude.
IT JUST MEANS THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE THEIR POINT!

  6. If your Dad turns around to you about his youth being more productive in his days, then you can counter that by telling him how productivity in this day and age is 1,000's of times greater than in his day.

    Proof: Computers. The digital age has rapidly improved all communication and filing and has improved productivity over and over again.

    If he feels his generation is harder working, then why is today's output so much higher than his day? Is that not proof that although the jobs we do are different, our generation is actually working harder and producing more?

  9. I agree that the youth today is very disobedient and extremely rude but then it's not fair to get prejudiced against all of us. I mean good and bad ppl are every where and at all times. We are far better than our ancestors and forefathers in may ways. I totally agree with ur point of view
