 There have been massive changes in lifestyle of young people of today’s youth.  Most of the changes are remarkable and dramatic. Now a days, the young people’s objectives and view points are also dissimilar amid of the two periods. All these modifications have made people believe that life today for a young person is far harder than years ago. 

Now a days, communication is through Social Media like Twitter, Facebook, email addresses, cell phones and Skype just to mention but a few. There are certain distinctions in household concept of older times and present times. A young individual’s household should be the superior influence of their lives. Parents of young people a hundred years ago comprehended this and did all they could do to make sure this happen.  When we look at what is call household today, it is not what individuals hundred years ago would term as a family. Divorce was never known in communities those days and if there was a kid, a mother and father were present too. Youngsters were extremely keen to protect their siblings. 

It was not possible for children to have two mothers or fathers and had no choice between father and mother. Families today are prone to family violence, divorce cases and remarriages that make children have more than one mother or father.  This has made youngsters today to ignore the concept of family values and can do whatever they wish at anytime. Discipline is extremely low in youngsters today as compared to young people year ago. 

Life today is far away different with life lived years ago. Especially when young people are involved, the family structures and bondages of older times were strong but today they no longer have power. Parents today do not have full authority or capacity to discipline their children. This makes them ignore the values and principles governing families. In older times, communication was poor but today communication is extremely easy since technology has made the world a small entity. Life has really changed and things are not the same at all. The more changes are experienced, the more Youngsters life becomes hard.
