Young People These Days Tend to Be Less Polite and Respectful than In The

Young people these days tend to be less polite and respectful than in the past. Causes and solutions.

It is irrefutable that the modern generation nowadays has become less considerate and civil than in earlier times. In this essay, I intend to explore the possible causes of this situation and suggest some ways forward.

The most important reason is the disintegration of the traditional joint family system. In today’s nuclear families, there are no grandparents to teach moral values to children. Parents are busy working and do not spend quality time with their children. Consequently,
children become self-centred and uncaring for the world around them. Secondly, we are part of a consumerist society. We desire to have the latest things, and to get those things, we become workaholics. We set goals for ourselves and work hard to achieve them. As a result politeness and respect have taken a back seat. Finally, we have the influence of the western culture. There, it is considered quite normal to argue and question the elders.

The solutions are not simple. To begin with, it is necessary to instil moral values in children at a young age. So, a joint family system should be encouraged. Secondly, community welfare programmes should be part of the high school curriculum. We can also use the help of the media to show programmes highlighting the good points of earlier times and discouraging consumerism. But, the final onus is on the people themselves. They should be willing to change.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that, in the fast-paced world of today, people have changed and become selfish and self-centred, but steps can be taken to re-imbibe some virtues of the olden times.
