Young individuals constantly question traditional ways to seek new and innovative changes to our ever-evolving culture. In the world we live in, our elders are taught to raise the next generation by sharing their wisdom and to provide expertise of life experiences.
The times have changed as millennials have entered the workforce and are working their way up to a higher status in society. Instead of limiting the questions asked by millennials, the older generation should accept and welcome a shift to civilization.
North Central College student McLean Funk (’17) said, “the older generation views millennials as less hard-working individuals who feel that they are entitled to privileges without putting in the necessary work.” While young people push their freedoms as far as they can go, new boundaries aren’t always a bad thing.
Traditional thinking has its place, like a Victorian home, but sleek, modern lofts are also marketing at the same value. There is no right or wrong way to embrace a new way of culture, as change is never easy.
Millennials want to find work they are passionate in and believe in what they are doing. The young generation’s values have good intentions and have started to rub off on previous generations.
