The younger generation knows best
Old people are always saying that the young are not what they were. The same comment is made from generation to generation and it is always true. It has never been truer than it is today. The young are better educated. They have a lot more money to spend and enjoy more freedom. They grow up more quickly and are not so dependent on their parents. They think more for themselves and do not blindly accept the ideals of their elders. Events which the older generation remembers vividly are nothing more than past history. This is as it should be. Every new generation is different from the one that preceded it. Today the difference is very marked indeed.
In this lesson the students of grade 10/5 discuss all these problems. The steppingstone is technology. They claim that the young generation can educate the old one in terms of modern devices and the language they use while messaging.
They come to an argument that the problem of generation gap is a bit exaggerated and they do find a common language. They meet halfway and illustrate how the situation might be reversed today. The old are prepared to admit that they can from their students.
