The difference between generations

Life of present generation is faraway different when compared with the older ones. Things have changed significantly. The way things used to work in the past are not the same as now because new systems of doing things have been make known to the society. The way we consolidate things is different from how our old generation used to sort out and live manically in their society. This is the age where voices from all parts of society and rights are equally shared and heard. Back then, to stand on what you believe is costly, including your lives. Some of the most important differences between our generation and the old generation are education, technology, lifestyle, and communication between people too.

When it comes to education most people from present generation tend to have at least a bachelor’s degree. In other words, they cannot work until they have an appropriate education. In contrast, people in the older generation did not have a lot of opportunities to study. In the past, only rich people would have the opportunities to study. Also, people in the older generation focused more on working than studying. Thus, people in present generation have a higher education than people of older generation.

In present generation we have right to education i.e. men and women both have equal right to have education. In contrast, women of older generation did not have opportunity to study when compared with men. Coming to technology it evidently changed our society. As days goes by, science and technology has been virtually advanced and used to create various machines from vehicles, weapons, mobile phones, computers or any other equipment that are designed using technology. Compared to the old generation whereby technology wasn’t really familiarized as they had to ensure that their task is completely done by their bare hands without any programmed device that they could use.

Today’s generation have been relaying on internet for almost everything in their day to day life. In contrast, older generation used to depend upon themselves to get their work done. And when it comes to life style people of present generation enjoy easier lives when compared with the older ones. The lifestyle for the older ones was quite difficult because as a way of discipline, the children were whipped and given punishments by their parents and any mistake made there were severe consequences and this made the child to be more vigilant and careful next time before trying another stupid thing but our generation parents are becoming more relaxed when disciplining their child and that has led to the child becoming rebellious and having troubles following some simple rules and regulations given by their parent. Today’s generation after graduation from university, they may not have to work immediately. They can sit around at home and do nothing because their parents are willing to support them. They do not have to be concerned too much about their future plans. On the other hand, people of older generation tend to have harder lives. If they want something, they had to work really hard to achieve it.

And finally when it comes to communication between people, the older generation used to face many problems in contacting their dear ones. Whereas, people of present generation are used to connecting with each other almost immediately. For example, if young people want to contact their friends that live in different countries, they usually contact them by using their mobile phones. Teenagers in the new generation spend most of their time chatting with their friends on their mobile phones or chatting online more than doing anything else. On the other hand, people from older generation are accustomed to writing letters to contact friends that are far away. Furthermore, they like to deal with other people face to face. When it comes to men and women, men used to have more freedom in communicating with others when compared with the women, who were not even allowed outside from their homes. In contrast, present generation there is almost no difference between men and women in contacting their dear ones and talking with people.
