Opposition damns teens’ ‘free rein’

Opposition damns teens free rein: “But defenders of Generation Y (those who were born between 1980 and 1995) claim the vast majority behave themselves with only a small percentage were ruining their reputation.”

It would be good to get some numbers and statistics. It seems to be a generation of extremes. The bad are very ,very bad and have no boundaries and the good, are very ,very good and have such a lot to offer the world. We tend to constantly focus on the bad ones and the horrible behaviour. It’s true , they are burning up a lot of time, energy and salaries. We need ways to shut down what I believe are the minority very quickly. They are headline grabbers and then the really good ones are overlooked and are deprived of the praise while we bemoan the behaviour of the inconsiderate and the ill bred. The trouble is the extremes are extreme and their shock value gets us every time because they have a wonderful sense of entitlement. We need to wise up.
