Молодежь (современная). На самом ли деле она такая плохая, как некоторые думают. Ваше мнение
To my mind, teenagers are criticised for no reason. To start with, nowadays more teenagers leave school with good qualifications and go to universities than ever before. There are millions of young people who achieve great things and become successful. In addition, lots of teens do household chores, look after their younger siblings or have part-time jobs. More than that, a growing number of teen¬agers take part in different sports competitions and win medals.
Many adults criticise teens for having bad habits like drinking or smoking. They also believe that modern teenagers are cruel and aggressive. I do not think it is fair that all teenagers are being la¬belled as problem. Not everyone who is a teenager drinks and gets involved in fights. Very few of them think it is clever to go out and start fighting. Of course, there are some rebellious teenage subcul¬tures, but they are opposed to the materialism in the society. In fact, most teens think about changing the world to the best.
To sum up, the main reason for such unjust attitude to teen¬agers is the generation gap. It is difficult for adults to admit that teenagers have the right to have their own fashion, music and hab¬its. Of course not all teens are ideal, but by and large they are no worse than their parents.
