Comment on the following statement:
| Some people believe that modern teenagers are really awful. However, modern teenagers think that they are criticized for no reason. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that teens are ill-bread, misbehaved and absolutely horrible, whereas others think that it is not true. They believe that modern youth is well-bread, hardworking and polite.
I think that teens nowadays are not that bad as they seem. First of all, they have a lot of lessons at school and plenty of homework. Second, many of them have a great deal of home duties because their parents work all days long. The standards of politeness and well-behavior are also different now.
At the same time there are people who say that it is really hard to talk with modern teens. They talk back and never listen to grown-ups. They are totally merged in playing their computer games.
In my opinion these people have a point. Some of teens fall into the trap of games, some might get angry at the whole world and behave acordingly. However, I strongly believer that these are some moments of their growing up. Since the standards of politeness and well-behavior have changed they ofthen do not mean it.
In conclusion, I would like to say that the life of teenagers is not easy nowadays. There are many more temptations now than young people had before. Nevertheless, I am really surprised and pleased how my generation is dealing with them. There are indeed some teens that should be criticized but not many of them.
