As newer generations emerge there will be more changes and more transformation. The generation Y is also called the echo boomers, millennial generation and the generation next. Generation Y are people who were born between 1980 and 1994. They are now in a stage were they will be entering work force and action so there is a lot more to expect when it comes to various professions.
Generation Y is the kind who voice their opinion loud and clear. Be it the right to vote, the right to scream, the right to consume alcohol and so on. If you have a child who belongs to this generation, then you should not complain much when they turn up at home with their belly pierced at a legal age. It is the most opinionated generation of all. If something is wrong, they will ask and f something is going wrong they will try to stop it. However, when it comes to right or wrong, it is their opinion and not anyone else’s that will be taken into consideration.
When it comes to generation Y and drugs or alcohol, this generation is not above trying and experiencing anything new. They are willing to experiment with drugs and alcohol and do not think that there is anything wrong with it because it is their life and they can do whatever they want with in. Therefore, generation Y has no qualms about doing drugs and alcohol and are proud about it as they will brag and talk about it with their friends.
Many baby boomers feel that generation Y is into drugs and alcohol because in today's society it is necessary for both parents to work to make ends meet. This leaves the children without supervision or guidance. They have no one to tell them what is right and what is wrong.
However, it is important to understand that the generation Y expects more out of life and not less. So when it comes to compromise they are not good at it. However, at the same time if they want a better life, they will work for it.
