From the Media, from family behaviour, from observing the young from our perspective of semi successful parents, I feel that:1) some young people behave purely and simply because their parents disciplined them for this type of behaviour....... eg, pictures of them showing their posterior, using the F & C word, tatooes, ring piercing, roaring down the road in their cars (borrowed from parents (they don't care) or touched-up, bought vehicles of their own).
One of our 7 brood, at the almost middle age of the 30's when briefly touching bases, ordered at restaurant, an incredible array of food - and left it on the plate. He was brought up to finish what was on his plate. Another young person wouldn't look at us while leaving the country, in spite of being close. She didn't like to do the usual goodbye cheek to cheek stuff which although might not be genuine, results in a good feeling on both sides. Is it called manners?
I think discipline layers us in life as to how to behave in a civilised fashion. We do need to get on with others. We do need to think on how we would feel if someone did this to oneself. This was taught to me by my mother and I think a huge reflection on one's behaviour to be recognised. It is actually unselfishness and too many youngsters are only thinking of themselves!
I don't need to say anymore.
