How do you feel about the silent generation? Things have changed drastically but do you think they have changed for the good or have they gotten worse? And how?

yes, good question. they have changed in both the ways. In good ways- understanding and caring were more betwere the generations. And in bad way due to more care, children are becoming lazy and parents were being neglected at their old age(mostly).

I think that people are so consumed with their "full" life that we do tend to forget the one's that took care of us. Good observation.

yes, even the parents were consumed full at their younger age but still they took care of their younger ones. Its like missing human values day by day.

i work in a high school and i see teenagers and how they act every time. they're very outspoken to some point it gets to be disrespectful to their teachers and other school staff. they dress like their 7 years older than their real age. maybe their attitude is rooted from their home and just emanates in school. lack of guidance from their parents could be a source. it's not that bad... i think that it's just different. now, we have to know how to handle teens... we need to know how to approach them and connect with them. since everything is evolving in our world, the only solution is to adapt. that includes dealing with the new generation. ^^ good day!

I like your post. We do need to learn how to connect to and be there for teenagers instead of labeling them we need to learn about them. Kind of like a new species LOL
