Teenagers Today Lack Moral Values and Self-Discipline

Moral values and graciousness, in the past, were prominent in most
teenagers. Majority of the youths then learnt respect, courtesy,
consideration, decency, propriety, honesty and righteousness from a
young age, and had enough self-discipline to hold to these values.
However, these moral values and self-discipline are slowly diminishing
over the years, as most of the younger generation are gradually
disregarding these ethics. The listed values have slowly faded away,
as they mean little to these adolescents, as moral values and
self-discipline are on the verge of disappearing.

This lack of self-discipline and self-control is becoming more and
more apparent over time. However, this situation is not to be taken
lightly as the younger generation is the future of our nation. Even
the simplest of morals like, respect, care and consideration are
slowly fading away over the years. A simple display of respect like
offering the elderly a seat on the bus is being replaced by scenarios
of students competing with them for seats. Instead of showing the
principles of care and concern, several youngsters even engage in
decadent behaviour by taking pleasure in inflicting torture upon less
able people. As fewer people lack the morality to help the needy, even
Community Involvement Projects have to be forced upon students.

The masses of the youths today have little regard for moral values. As
society is under the more ‘open-minded’ western influence, many teens
are just blindly following trends, placing peer pressure and the
desire to fit in over their own moral values. One example is the fact

adding in more relevant information. The conclusion was thus changed
to suit the body of the essay.

Firstly, I learnt to change my assumptions. I made a lot of false
assumptions in the first draft. However, I learnt to change my
assumptions, especially general implications. Instead of sentences
like ‘morals have slowly faded away’, I used ‘MAJORITY of the morals
are slowly fading away’. This prevents the essay from being overly

Secondly, I learnt to use a wider vocabulary. Instead of the constant
use of ‘teenagers’ so often, I learnt to use synonyms to replace those
words to increase the sophistication of the essay.

Lastly, I learnt how to constructively criticize my essays by picking
out the pros and cons of each essay, and using them to my advantage.
