Some individuals believe day by day peoples are being antisocial and disrespectful with others. This essay intends to analyze the causes of this phenomenon and will suggest some ways to ameliorate the situation.
First of all, in today’s world, everyone is competing with each other to lead a better lifestyle. As a result, people have become selfish, isolated and workaholic to satisfy their heart greed to become more wealthy than another. Secondly, changing the family structure is also a big cause of this phenomenon. The trend of the nuclear family affects the kid’s behaviour. Because no one is there to monitor the kid’s behaviour when both parents go to work, They just left their children in the hand of media like TV and the internet or some uneducated housemaid. Therefore, they didn’t have the proper education of social manners. Eventually, they become antisocial. Additionally, the values of a social culture are being lost day by day because of globalisation. People tend to follow the global culture rather than the traditional, which is also considered antisocial and disrespectful by the orthodox elderly.
There are many possible solutions to this problem. To begin with, people have to learn to strike a balance between work and family life. Governments should also fix the maximum hours for workers to work per week. People should revert back to the old joint family system, which would be beneficial for everyone. The children would learn the moral values and the elderly would be well looked after. Also, the media can play a vital role in highlighting the good points of traditional and western culture so that people can adopt good social values.
To sum up, anti-social and mutual lack of respect in today’s time can be dealt with by taking simple measures, and individuals and governments should collectively take these steps.
