Nowadays, there are a lot of problems in schools and high schools with the the pupils’ behaviour, they disturb the lessons, they aren’t interested in learning anything and sometimes they have an aggressive behaviour with their teachers. But is this a new problem or did it happen in the past too?.
Many people think that people always have a rebellious personality when they are young and this behaviour changes with age. All of us were young and we answered back our parents, teachers, etc., but this is the age, it as always been like that, not only nowadays.
On the other side there are people who think that this problem is now much worse than ever before. They think that in the past young people showed more respect to adults, they were more interested in learning. They think that now, young people can get whatever they want without any effort, (maybe because their parents give them everything). In schools, for instance, the punishment for bad behaviour is not harsh enough, so they know that if they are rude with the teachers, they don’t pay attention or they don’t study they won’t have serious problems.
In my opinion, I think that it is true. When we are young we are rebellious, we don’t like people telling us what we should do, or how to do it, but I think that we weren’t so aggressive as they are now. For example, if you are a teacher and your pupils are disturbing the lesson, you can’t punish them, you can’t do anything.
So I think young people are more rude, violent and aggressive than in the past, maybe because they have more material things without effort now but most of them don’t have dreams and goals for the future.
