Youth have always been categorized into one stereotype no matter the decade. Self-centered, ill-behaved, social obsessed, trouble makers. It is a completely biased assumption. I do admit that there are a number of youth today who fit into that category, but there are even more youth who are the complete opposite. The media can be partly blamed for this stereotyping. The image of youth that they protray, both girls and boys, are so close to the earlier description, it's no wonder that adults think that all youth are like that.
