Behaviour of young is awful

I HAVE travelled on public transport during daytime hours. I have found that so- called young adults who get on the bus at the College in Ebbw Vale act more like schoolchildren. They raise their voices, shouting back and forth to each other and using foul language which I find distasteful when the young ladies swear at the boys and vice versa.

These young people do not seem to respect each other or the people around them.

If they wish the older generation to give them respect, then they should grow up and act like adults and not children. I blame the education system and families for lack of discipline in schools and the family home for not educating them on how to behave when out and about.

I strongly disagree with this. I don't doubt that some young people cause trouble, of course they do. But that doesn't mean that you can then label all young people as trouble-makers.
Some young people do behave disgustingly, but grown adults are no better. I believe the behavior of some adults is absolutely disgusting yet I do not come to the conclusion that every single one of them are the same.

'If they wish the older generation to give them respect, then they should grow up and act like adults and not children.' - I am aware of many adults that behave like children. It's not as though every single member of their generation behaves perfectly either. Respect is something both sides should earn and adults seem to forget this.
You have people who behave and people who don't. How old you are has nothing to do with it.
I'm sure when older generations were younger, half of them behaved no better than young adults today.
Older generations seem to forget that they are the ones setting an example for young people. Can you really blame young people for misbehaving in the world we live in today.
If young people are constantly made out to be trouble-makers, thats what they will become.

The opening post could be used to describe all ages, but in my opinion if one of my children or I get knocked or hit by a trolley in a shop 9 times out of 10 a younger person would apologise, but elderly people seem to think they don't have to! Respect works both ways!

"Behaviour of *chavs* is awful"

There, fixed it for you. Agree with the above posters - it's not an age issue.
