Young Generation Definition
The words ‘young’ and ‘generation’ separately does not mean much but when we put these words together i.e., ‘young generation’, the meaning changes completely.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, young generation means – “the next or rising generation, especially viewed in contrast to one’s own, and often with (sometimes disapproving) reference to the attitudes and values associated with it”.
Young generation refers to the youth of our nation. In terms of human beings, by young generation we mean the people who are young or have not existed for that long or in other words teenagers.
The word ‘young’ means being in its early stage of life and the word ‘generation’ means people of approximately the same age.
The noticeable characteristics of the young generation can be divided into two types –
- Positive &
By positive characteristics we can say that as they are young they can be shaped in any way i.e., in terms of good and bad. They are also fiercely loyal to the people they trusts.
They are not afraid of speaking their mind and are very idealistic person. Now by negative characteristics we can say that they are quite immature and acts emotionally.
They are easily influenced by people and most of the times can not differentiate between good or bad people as well as things.
Another important negative characteristic is that they have limited knowledge of the world and they tend to act upon their emotions based on that limited knowledge.
Generation gap is the gap between today’s youth and their parents or in another words the difference between the thoughts and opinion of today’s youth with their parents.
Generation gap does not mean the difference in the age of two people; it means the difference in two people thoughts.
As time passes by, the rule and regulation of the world changes. The parents often cannot keep up with these changes.
The youth also refuses to understand their parent’s point of views and which lead to the misunderstanding between the parent and their child.
Another main reason for the generation gap is communication gap between parents and today’s youth as parents are busy working and the youth is busy with the electronic gadgets that are given to them by their parents.
This generation gap can be overcome by the respective parties if they communicate among themselves and try to understand each other point of views.
Moral values of today’s generation
Moral values are the ideals and principles that one follows to distinguish the right from the wrong. These ideals that one follows helps in building up that person’s character.
In today’s world the word moral have lost its meaning. The youth does not have the same moral values that their parents have.
Morals are what made these society and these morals only help the people to follow certain set of rules and regulations.
However, as the youth has almost forgot about the meaning of the word moral, they tend to act differently which sometime is not accepted by the society.
Morals also help people reach their goals. As the future of the world is in the shoulder of today’s youth, their lack of moral values can affect the future quite badly and the affect will be disastrous.
Moral values are the reason why people have self control and because of lack of morals in the young generation, the lack of self control is becoming more and more prominent because of which the youth fails to differentiate good from the bad.
Moral values are extremely important and the lack of it in the youth has became a matter of concern for the society.
To improve the society the youth should learn about their mistakes and take action against it and it cannot happen until and unless they have a set of morals.
Impact of social media on young generation
Social media is now an important part of young generation. Social media’s impact is huge on young generation as the young generation made social media their number one priority.
Most of the youth socialize everyday through the social media. Social media has both positive as well as negative affects on the young generation.
As positive affects, social media helps the youth in studies as all most all kinds of answers can be found here, it also helps in spreading awareness to the people, it helps people to communicate with each other, helps people to find jobs etc.
Just like the positive effect, social media has negative effects also like addiction to social media, lack of privacy, a waste of time, misinformation, falling in traps laid by people etc.
Social media has become useful as well as dangerous to the society. It depends on the youth that how they want to use the social media.
It has become a headache for the parents as most of the time they thinks that their children are misusing the social media which leads to misunderstandings between parents and their children.
The youth should learn about stuff before getting involved in them. It depends on the youth that how they want to use the social media.
Young generation or the youth is the future of the world. Parents should divert the youth’s energy into something useful so that they do not misuse that.
The young generation are very intelligent and if they are properly taken care of can create a world full of peace and love. Young generation is the key to the better future.
