This is a result of social norms that were established during their time which are not applicable to today’s young adults. They were taught and believed that work is not supposed to be fun or even the slightest bit an adventure.Work was simply a way for them to “put bread on the table and a roof over their heads” (Arnett 90). However, young emerging adults see work as something completely different. They want work to be an ongoing adventure that really excites them, offers them the stretch for self expression and development. This is quite true especially when I take a keen look at my dad and other elders in my household.
Kids should get paid for good grades. Kids in today's society all want money and we'll do anything to get it, including get good grades. Many studies have shown that people work harder if they physically get something out of there work such as money or candy. Since the kids today don’t get anything for good grades it's making them not want to try hard or put in any work into their school grades. Just think, going to work every day and not getting paid, would people still try their best and put all their time and effort into their job?
Sot if we payed our students money it would prepare them for a job because they are already used to the environment. Another reason students should be paid is because they should be rewarded for their hard work. In the work force if an employee does a good job doing their job they get a raise or a promotion. So at school students should be paid for their good work at school. Paying students will also teach them the value of a dollar.
During this time individuals experience physical, cognitive, emotional and psychological changes, some of which may be influenced by “cultural factors” (Esman,1990).Much of the elders critics of teens revolves around parents perceived inability to be involved with their children and teach them the right values. It is not just the elderly who question the lack of the values they see in the youth, parents of teenagers share the same concerns . While the publics concerns are perhaps exaggerated, they are not unfounded. Teenagers nowadays are very rude. They do not respect people of older age.
The issues that we face are being passed down to our children. The objections and reasons for hating one culture to the next are being passed down from one generation to the next. It almost seems as if it gets worse with each generation. It’s getting worse with each generation because of the effects of inequality on the American dream. Kids are no longer born with the thought of being able to achieve whatever they want.
There are many different generations, that accomplish many things over the years. The important generations are the greatest, baby boomers, generation X, generation Z, and the millennials. Each generation learns from each other and try not to make similar mistakes. There is a huge difference between the Greatest generation and the millennials. They both have accomplished so much over and have failed many times.
Back to School Why are older people going back to when they should be getting ready to retire? Many older people have to keep working longer in today’s society, the because of the finical burden that is put on them. They’re abundance good and bad reasons why they would want to go back to school. There is also plenty effect that would come into play for that individual and they would have taken some serious consideration before going back to school. The reinsurance of a better education in there current job field, would help in receiving a promotion, or raise, to ensure better job security, maybe the person would like to change fields, because of medical limitations that they have in the current job.
How ever, older teens and young adults have similarities such as; having some of the same interest in music, games, and clothing, also making mistakes. They also have differences such as; Teens are mostly irresponsible and care free. Young adults, on the other hand, are more responsible.Young adults are obligated to be responsible. If they are not there, consequences are more crucial than they are for older teens. Older teens and adults are both similar and different, with that being said they can 't be the same.
Parents and children basically come from different decades and as time pasts, things change and people change to adapt to the new world. Due to the decades of time gap, we certainly have different type of cultivation, education and lifestyles with the past generations. This causes the difference between our mind and the way we think. When we have different thinking, we behave differently and most of the time, our parents’ generation do not understand why we behave in certain ways. For example, old generations tend to over interfere their children’s or grandchildren’s lives and this is the part that the new generation dislike as nowadays people like to decide and do things on their own.
