Kids today have no idea about what they could be doing. Some kids tell be about how you can use adsense to make money online. But when given the tools they quit after one day. Why would they not take the lemons and make lemonade? Because it would require them to learn new skills and they just won’t do it. It is really sad that kids would rather spend time on Instagram and Vine than make money making a few videos or articles a day. This generation has the worst work ethic the United States has ever seen. Social Media now gives kids the ability to promote themselves and even make some money but they would rather just post pictures of their lunch on instagram. Some of these kids will take the tools and be successful while the other kids go get their job applications, put on uniforms, and go to work. If they don’t get money as soon as they start they are not happy they expect money to be easy. But most of all they refuse to be creative.
This question is important. Kids today have access to so many recouses and tools that every one of them has the capability to do something great. But there is one thing containing them, Social Media. I see kids in middle school begging their parents for Facebook accounts so that they can be with their friends when they are not. They spend hours scrolling through a feed full of useless information. While they are doing this some other kids are reading. The kids that are reading will be a lot better off in the long run. It all comes down to creativity. When kids read about what their friend ate for breakfast that information is useless, the kid that is reading articles about current events will be improving his knowledge of vocabulary and useful information. I have seen kids that want access to Social Media that they accept the permission from their parents to do so as a birthday present. Kids always want to know what their friends are doing instead of doing what they could be doing. This generation will more than likely be one of the dumbest generations the United States has ever seen.
