I think the youth in my city (Hong Kong) seems to be quite lost since they have t face many problems. one of the major problems being that they don't see any hope in their future in terms of housing. In housing issue, we have around 8 million people to live in a small place, so everything became so expensive. The youth fell that since it is hard for them to have an high income job that will be enough for them to buy a house for their future, they just fell so hopelessly that they don't know how they can be independent and have their own family when they don't have such an ability to do so. that's one of the problems. How about the youth in your city or country ? Share with us ?

Hi there @wildlittlefan the youth in my city are a mixed bunch-- while some exude self confidence and want to stay in school, keep getting a better understanding of 'how' to think rather than accepting 'what' to think is great; while the others just dawdle around expecting hand outs like their parents have taught them is simply okay to do . . .

Most kids today are spoiled and used to having everything given to them. Not all but many.

@RubyHawk I am so glad I had parents who made me value hard work and then earn reward and respect from it

@enlightenedpsych2 Parents used to demand hard work and respect. Now they want to be friends instead of parents in many cases.

More and more youth in US are living with their parents because of the economy, high living expenses, student loan debt, and low job rates.

I think kids have it pretty good, unless they have huge college loans to pay back. Much better than in the past. And they would do better if they didn't buy these huge houses with high mortgages.
