Older generations fail to understand that the education curriculum has improved so thus education is way harder now compared to how it was during their time. It is unfair to compare education now to how it used to be back then because the systems and curriculums have changed.
I believe that the older generation is still stuck to the myth that men do not cry. The younger generation has however adopted an understanding that everyone can release his/her anger in various ways.
Elders believe that going to bed to rest is a sign of laziness, which it is not. Mostly, we rest during the day to create studying time during the night, where the night is a lot quieter compared to midday where there are many disturbances that hinder us from concentrating on our studies.
Elders don’t understand the mind of the youth. They don’t hear out the ideas we have for the future and what we can contribute to the economy. They think that all we want to do is enjoy life but we also want to be a part of building our future and focussing on the future generation.
Elders need to understand that we as young people need to also free our minds from school pressure by having fun and going out for movies or doing something fascinating. Unfortunately, they believe that whenever we go out, we are going to drink or do things we are not supposed to do.
