"What's happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders and disobey their parents.
They ignore the law. They riot in the streets inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying.
What will become of them?"
The above quote is attributed to Plato in 400BC. (Source NZCPR Weekly)
There is a widespread perception that today's youth are more badly behaved than ever before.
I wouldn't know but do enjoy this fashion statement...

I think it's one of those things that go around. I'm sure when we were that age, our parents said things like that about us.... however, we may not have been so disrespectful, but we were all troublemakers in one way, shape or form.ReplyDelete
Don't think I'm defending todays youth. Though I have to say, for every thorn, there is a rose and there are still a lot of good kids out there.
Society keeps changing and acceptans and perspective vary. Youth should handle it with some maturity and so should adults. They may find the balance!ReplyDelete
