Cultural diversity is defined as the cultural differences that exist amongst people of specific regions, countries, continents and across the globe. Cultural diversity means that people from different culturally diverse areas can maintain their cultural heritage without discrimination or prejudice from others (Diller, 2011). The concept of cultural diversity was brought forward as a positive concept that encourages people not to hide their cultural identities but to embrace and retain these cultural influences. Cultural diversity comes forth in different areas such as language, mode of dressing, ethnicity, religious beliefs, and personal values among others. Traditionally, when cultural and racial discrimination was rife, most people felt it necessary to discard their cultural backgrounds and adopt a more acceptable lifestyle.

Bilingualism in today’s society is indeed prominent and the benefits that emerge impact one’s development immensely. In fact, having the ability to be proficient in two or more languages has proven to be more beneficial in various spheres in comparison to only being proficient in one language. However, one tends to question how it contributes to a child’s development or possibly even to teaching another language. This paper will address these matters of interest by firstly looking at the theoretical framework of bilingualism. Following this, the paper will analyse practical examples of bilingualism in society today where it will become apparent that the benefits of bilingualism outweigh the negative effects it may have on a variety of domains
Even though it contains some vast benefits, people as a culture have to set a limit of social media usage to a reasonable amount. Social media needs to be recognized as a tool to be used not excessively like how people are starting to relay on it in their daily lives. Websites such as Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest are very helpful as a resource that provide news, gossip, and to keep in contact with friends and family, but individuals should not focus on it like an important element of their life. People have to decide how to manage how this information that is fed to them in order to try and curb the side effects which have been getting worse annually. People should be focusing on limiting their children now so they can get the proper skills they need for interacting with other people within their age groups and social strata properly when they are of age.
Eliminating the causes of crime, like poverty, unresolved personal issues that escalate into violence and a general imbalance of privileges would be much more efficient in the long run, albeit of course it would mean that some people might have to give up their unique position, wealth, and the like. I 'm not saying everyone needs to have exactly as much as everyone else, but if people would have an easier access to education and thus could build up a live for themselves in which they have just enough, nobody would need to commit crimes anymore. This is of course a task that can 't be performed as quick and easy as just installing more cameras everywhere, so the society itself would have to commit to working out
That perception comes with the skill of cultural relativism, and individuals using cultural relativism would be less intolerant of other cultures and accept that there are other cultures besides their own. Multiculturalism would lead to the awareness of the validity of each and every culture and that there are many similarities and differences between all of them. Multiculturalism as a result would aid in resolving cultural conflicts as a result of intolerance. It is still not the solution for cultural conflicts but integral in reaching it, because multiculturalism facilitates and encourages the changes in perception but it does not guarantee a change in levels of

Youth people are evidently engaged in online activities, but as much of the debate is focused on entertainment and socialization, is this really civic engagement? Peter Levine (2006) outlines a few useful points in this debate. Firstly, while the general knowledge seems to diminish, many subgroups in the population may be engaged in issues that are of specific value to them. Secondly, there are certain overlooked trends in youth engagement like a higher degree of volunteering, that contribute to a positive citizenship. Lastly, the decline in participation in classical institutions such as voting and the conventional press may signify not disengagement but instead a deliberate choice to not participate in what the youth sees as a flawed system.
Of course if there is love in the relationship, they relationship is considered very healthy and balanced. With family and friendly relationships the qualities are very much similar to those of the romantic relationship but obviously just less intimate , friendships are usually easier to find and keep so the characteristics of them being healthy are much easier to develop but then again also much easier to lose.
