In my honest opinion...not as much as most people want you to think! I think every generation looks at the younger generation and enjoys muttering "kids these days". But I think many problems are common from one generation to the next. If you watch old movies, you will see that many things were the same. I think the biggest difference is that now because of technology and better communication stuff is talked about a lot more! Back in the old days, if a teenage girl got pregnant she was hidden away until she gave birth and maybe gave the baby up for adoption. That's just an example. Think about the 60's. How WILD was that time? The parents of teenagers in that generation were probably shocked at how their kids were behaving. Now some of those very people probably shake their heads how how today's youth is behaving.

We have so many different approach not only in technology but also in society, cultures and etc... Yes, its true. Not always we can see the advantages but disadvantages as well.

Hello cuddiluk! I am not sure about this, but based on what I heard, new generations are very different from the old generations. They said that new generations are very agressive now. They are disrespectful and won't listen to their parents anymore.

Todays' youth have access to lots of technology that the former generation had not. That's like this every generation.Things are changing constantly. But only the technology. Behaviour will stay the same, every age with it's own specifics. When you're young you learn a lot, and mostly influenced by your peers. Growing, you understand that not everything your peers do is what you really want, so you start learning from other places. You also ask the older generation for advice.But , even though the older generation knows a lot more than the youth does, still, there are things that everyone will have to experience personally in order to learn and advance.
