Editor, Ceres Courier,
There has been a shift in attitudes, slang, and fashion trends in every generation; but there is a new attitude that has come about that needs to be discussed. As a high school senior, I witness crude behavior at every turn. As I look at peers at my school I notice that they all have one thing in common - they expect.
They expect so much from others, whether it be from a teacher giving them unlimited amounts of times, to make up a test, or from other people always giving them the benefit of the doubt, they expect it. I would like to think that it is just teens being teens, but that is simply not the case. The world created this kind of behavior and continues to endorse it. Too many adults nowadays are willing to say, "Oh well they are just kids" and allow them to think that they can have this happen whenever they want. This includes making teenagers expect people to give them a second chance whenever something does not go their way. By doing this we are creating a society of people who think the world will bend at their feet whenever they want. But newsflash: the world is not that forgiving and if this kind of behavior is not stopped these teenagers are going to receive a rude awakening.
This "Expectation Generation" needs to be stopped before it is too late.
