The world has changed quite a bit over the last 20 to 30 years. Views held by teenagers are not the same views you or I held when we were younger.
In fact, their beliefs vary widely and contrast sharply with what previous generations grew up with.
A survey taken in 2010 asked those under the age of 18 to share their thoughts on the world. What they said shocked me and, I believe, may shock you.
What Young People Believe
81% believe it is not okay to break the law, even if no one is hurt: If I had conducted this survey, I would not have expected this result. My opinion had been that most people would be okay with breaking the law, as long as no one was hurt.
This statistic about what young people believe says otherwise. Overwhelmingly, young people believe in obeying the laws.
