After the generation of our parents and grandparents, I believe that we’re both more and less moral than they were. As there were a lot of generations before us, there were many rules and regulations that they had to follow as children. It’s a totally different world today if you were to compare it with the way the world was back in the 70’s and 80’s. There are many reasons as to why we’re both more and less moral but it shouldn’t affect how we should act and treat other people.
Today’s generation is less moral than our parents and grandparents because of some of the role models that they have in their lives. For example, some kids on the bus that are rude to the elderly and sit when in fact there are elderly who are in more need of a seat to sit in rather than teenagers. There are many kids who are so rude and arrogant when you ask them just a simple question. They don’t know the difference between right and wrong. Some smoke and drink in their teenage years and don’t even know how harmful it can be to their bodies later on. It can damage your lungs and your brains all because you made stupid choices and decisions. Teenagers don’t get that or maybe they weren’t taught that. It’s possible that maybe their parents are addicted to drugs and alcohol and they think “hey, if mom and dad can do it, why can’t I?” It gives them the green signal and then they think it’s alright to do all that type of stuff which isn’t what we should be taught. Others have such an attitude that they become all so defensive over such things that don’t matter as much as other things. There are many reasons as to why some are less moral then those before us, but it’s no excuse to try and cover up. For example, in the article “Are We Raising Morally Illiterate Kids” by Caroline Medwell, she said that she turned on the radio to hear the announcer introducing a program called “Is TV Turning Kids into Violent
