¿Cuáles son los problemas que enfrentan los jóvenes de hoy?
I agree with many of the comments but I also believe rampant consumerism is having a huge impact on our society. Giving children "things" is not love. Having "things" is not success. We don't "need" everything we see advertised on TV. Many children fail to get the time and attention they need from adults who are busy using, buying, or earning money for more "things".
El problema más grande van a enfrentar será el retorno del mullet.
The biggest problem they are going to face will be the return of the mullet.
I would have to say that the instability of the family unit is a the main problem. So many students do not have good role models in their parents.
Students whose parents are drug addicts, incarcerated, involved regularly in domestic disputes, etc., are at a distinct disadvantage. We see those students in school for maybe six or seven hours a day, we have programs that offer them extra support (academic, social and familial), but in my experience a high percentage of these students are unable to break the pattern.
The challenge is not limited to a specific social class. Many of our students come from families in which both parents are highly paid professionals. Those students run the risk of the "neglected child" syndrome also.
On the other hand, I salute parents who are dedicated, loving, and firm with their children. Good job!
Hay un problema que a mi pensar lleva a todos - la falta de amor. Sea el amor de los padres para sus hijos, sea el amor para su esposo, sea el amor por sus padres, sea el amor por la tierra misma. Si haya más amor habrá menos problemas en el mundo.
There is a problem which I think leads to all problems and that is the lack of love. Whether it's the love of parents for their children, a couples love for each other, love for parents, love for the earth. If there was more love there would be less problems in the world today.
Pues, yo también soy una chica, de todo lo que veo a mi alrededor saco la idea que al menos en mi país, fuman mucho, toman mucho alcohol aunque no tengan 18, no leen NADA. Pues a veces puede que alguien de mi edad me pregunte ¿Quién es el autor de Don Quijote? Entonces, la verdad es que pierdo los nervios. ¿Cómo pueden ser tan ignorantes? Pues, creo que tengo la respuesta también. Nadie quiere que la proxima generación pueda pensar. Es que la televisión y el internet nos matan el tiempo. Y claro, si esto sigue siendo así, en el futuro no habrá gente sana sino gente con problemas de salud y todo.
Instability of the family unit. Lack of love. Rampant consumerism. Ignorance. Failing(ed) economy. Dios mío, ¿es el fin de la civilización? No. We have faced all of this before and will undoubtedly face it again.. and again. My parents lived through the great depression of the 30's and the second world war. They made less money than their parents for a time. Then the boom years following the war allowed them a very fine standard of living. In the late 60's, early 70's a young man did not fear for the lack of a job as there was a good chance he would have one... in Vietnam. People are resurgent. There will be those who will find their way through the maze of life and gain fulfillment from it and there will be those who will simply exist. And I guess there will be those who fail to exist. The problems change their costumes, but essentially remain the same. I found it intersting that no one mentioned drugs, other than as a corollary to the lack of family unity.
right. its no worse than it was 40 years ago. all the political scientists and economists are just going mad and exaggerating. I guess you have a right to your ignorance. No one can force you to acknowledge whats happening. Have fun with that I guess.
It is worse, but just because it has been going on longer, not because of some fundamental change. People who adopt your point of view tend to say that things were better when Clinton was President if they favor the Democrats, or when Reagan was President if the favor the Republicans. They are right in that, but the next step they take is to say that returning to their policies will make things better, and that is incorrect. The truth is that the bulk of our economic problems stem directly from Reaganomics and the associated transfer of tax burden to the middle class and the transfer of wealth to the rich. The games played to make it look like the economy is still functioning since then have only made things slightly worse, yet a vocal minority who are loudly protesting the long term results of these policies also advocate accelerating them. Every President since Carter has redefined inflation to make it smaller, the explosion in the money supply without an associated growth in the GDP that occurred under Bush Jr. actually started under Clinton, although it was greatly exacerbated by copying Nixon's attempt to avoid the fomal definition of recession (which led to 10 years of stagflation), the stock market P/E ratio bubble that peaked under Clinton actually sta rted under Reagan and still continues. The Republicans need to look past Reagan to Goldwater or Eisenhower and the Democrats need to look past Clinton to Kennedy or FDR.
The economic problems are not new and there are no short term solutions. The country is rapidly approaching the point where there are no solutions at all. I suggest that you study in detail the economics of the US over the last 100 years and identify the driving forces behind the changes, for better or worse--they are much different than the propaganda being put forth by any of the political groups or media economists.
I think there are problems all around these days. I'm 20, turning 21 next month, and I have to say that our generation is facing a horrible economy that our parents didn't have to deal with. For the first time in a long time (if ever) reports are coming out saying young people are likely not to make as much money as their parents on average, that young people may not be able to have the same comforts as their parents. We are being thrown out into an economy that is sending seasoned professionals to their knees and burying them in unemployment insurance checks and food stamps. Its not impossible to get a job (and I mean a good job, one to build your career with , but then the ****ty ones are getting scarce these days as well) but its really difficult. im lucky to have parents to support me now, but I have to pay for graduate school. I have a friend who relies on himself and he's been searching for jobs left and right and cant find one. He just paid his last month's rent, he gets food from friends and we buy him lunch at school sometimes. I know several people who had to leave their universities because of cut backs on financial aid. It's pretty bad. And now you read the news about countries overseas trying to hike up tuition costs as well and the people rioting in the streets attacking politicians. Our leaders who've been spewing this crap about deregulation and economic globalization over the last few decades have crapped all over everyone in this country, the entire world even, and that includes young people. Its getting bad, and this is only the beginning if we don't start shaping up in our economic policies (which we probably wont) and our environmental policies (which we probably won't). I think knowing this is probably the scariest thing of all.
I know its typical of one generation to blame the one before, but honestly since my future is at stake, I couldnt give a flippin buggy: What the **** were you all thinking?
I love being a part of my generation, but at the same time, there are a lot of issues going on. Not to say that issues havent happened in the past, but we really are in steep poopie.
I'm a very liberal person so it's good that I was born in this generation. I'm not a fan of too many traditional values, I believe in gay marriage and I'm part of the lgbt community, I believe in secularism, I'm an atheist, I condone sexual promiscuity, polyamory, etc. So this is probably the best time for me to be alive as far as American history goes, by far. Don't get me wrong.
Although I do enjoy a lot of it, I would be willing to add "the degradation of music" on the table. We went from Bob Dylan, Michael Jackson, etc. to Kesha, Gaga, and lil Wayne. You just have to laugh at that one. xD
¡Los tatuajes! Jajaja bueno para mí no . . . no me gustan tatuajes pero . . . hay jóvenes en mi colegio que los tienen.
¿Es correcto? ^^
Any other problems?
Probably tooth damage from tongue piercings. Rattling one of those barbells against the back of your teeth for a decade probably causes more microfissures than getting whacked in the head by a VW.
The young of today have an inate feeling that they are entitled to things that the generations before them worked so hard to get. It seems their drive has gone as well as the respect for the older generation. Also, where are the manners of the kids today? They need to get back to treating ladies like they did in the 1940s. That is gone today.
Los jóvenes de hoy tienen una sensación nen su que tienen derecho a las cosas que las generaciones anteriores a ellos trabajaron tan duro para llegar. Parece que su unidad ha pasado, así como el respeto de la generación anterior. Además, ¿dónde están las costumbres de los niños de hoy? Tienen que volver a tratar a las damas como lo hicieron en la década de 1940. Que se ha ido hoy.
