Today's generations is different.Youth today are more on internet use,busy on some in socializing with others friends,classmates,and also sometime they voice out there feelings through internet on social sites.. Some are led in bad situations,killing ,meeting having relationships,and also become addict.. Why this youth today is acting like this? my answer is because the parents don't have the right guidance,they just allow their child to do what they want... They are not teaching what is good for them,and just follow what the child want and even it is bad and risky t their life.. Parents are always given the warning through the things happened so they need to be alert to it..And if they want their child to be in the right direction,they should give them the right, guidance .A person will not do evil if He/she are faring God..

I see that the youth of today are rude and dont care. Like i'm only 30, and can see it, the respect has gone. then with kids being allowed to get away with so much as well. So call me a bit old fashion, but i think the kids need to be taught manners. there's nothing wrong with the kids getting punished they need to learn about life. it will then go back in each generation, about the parents not teaching the kids. as it will have been passed on. you can only try to do so much with your kids, if they choose the wrong path we can help them get back on the right path.

For me when someone complaints about why their kids are like this and like that means that they've crossed the line from being kids to being parents. If I'm not mistaken, I've heard the same things said by my parents and my parent's parents as well. In short it's just a cycle. As a parent, I agree that it's more difficult or there's more challenge to it nowadays because of technology. Before, the most common factors that contributes to a child's growth as just the parents, their teachers, their peers and who ever they interact with as they grow up but even with those influences it's still confined to the culture. But now, technology plays a big role already, for one, there's social networking sites and kids literally have access to the world at their finger tips through internet. But the bottom line is, kids are still kids, they're nothing but sponges that absorbs whatever information their parents allow them too. If kids have easy access to technology that means their parents have access to it too. Therefore, technology may play a big role on how kids grow up but it's the values of the parents that would have the biggest influence on how there kids will turn out to be as they grow up.

i also agree that today's generation is a lot different, far far away from our generation 3 to 4 decades ago. but i do not agree in putting the blame to the parents. i myself is a parent. and i am more to believe that i did my best guidance to my kids. i would rather blame the technology we are having now, the mobile phone, internet, games gadgets and the people they are with when they are not inside the house. we parents are doing our best to perform our responsibilities with our work, etc. and we cannot be with them all the time in school or any places that they go, with their school mates and friends.

It should be known that not only the parents are responsible. It is also by the influence of friends who are controlling their friend until the child find himself adapting to the wrong doings by his friends. Why are his friends like that, possibly because of his friends' parents.

I agree the new generation are different. Some parents don't guide their children in the right direction because they're mentally screwed up. There are some parents who does the best they can to guide their children but, I believe music, tv and society influence children tremendously. Violence is an everyday event to the point where it becomes normal to children because that's all they see in the news.
