When will the selfishness end?

Where did common sense go from the new generation? Is it ‘uncool’ for the new generation to think rationally anymore? When did, for instance, hanging out with friends till five in the morning become OK? Not just that, but arguing with them about it makes us look wrong and crazy.

You see, I was brought up by parents who had rules for living with them under one roof, and that to me makes sense. They gave birth to me, they provide shelter, they provide food, care, love, etc. They are my parents. Why wouldn’t I obey them? Try convincing a teenager these days using those arguments without them turning the whole argument on yourself and accusing you for making a big deal out of nothing. Nothing!

Personally, I can’t tolerate such behaviors if it was happening in my house, specially from people who aren’t even paying their own cellphone bill and aren’t doing their house choirs. Is it really that hard for teens to open up their eyes just a bit and realize their wrong doings? Why can’t they see that their behaviors might, in most cases, affect other people negatively who live with them under one roof? Are they completely blind to not be able to see their selfish actions towards other family members?

Many people say it’s a phase that every teenager goes through, but some teens seem to take forever to grow out of it and start thinking rationally and taking into account other people’s feelings. Sometimes it simply feels that their selfishness will never end.
