Essay question

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: young people today are more likely to help others than young people were in the past.

 

Sample answer

People always regard helping as a virtue. Schools and families educate children that it is everyone’s responsibility to offer helping to those in difficult situations. However, with economic prosperity, people pay more attention to materials and individual success, leading the young generation more selfish than before. From my perspective, actually young people today are not as warm-hearted as their counterparts in the past.

Firstly, children today are more inclined to be spoiled. When people’s lives become more wealthy and affluent, they do as much as they can to create a perfect environment for their next generation. Too much love and care from parents gradually let young people develop a sense of superiority without knowing how to respect and help others. I often observe in buses that young people sit in the seats reserved for senior citizens. Even though a senior citizen standing beside them, they pretend to be sleeping or reading something from their phones, ignoring their obligation to offer chairs to those in need.

Secondly, we cannot overlook the fact that the pressure young people face today is unprecedentedly high which deprives them of the time to think about helping others. As is known to all, students need to work very hard in competing against their peers in order to get access to good universities. After graduation, what awaits them is not a relaxing life but more fierce competition for better job opportunities. Such a stressful lifestyle makes them feel less compelled to help others.

Admittedly, it is not fair to say that all young people keep themselves away from doing something beneficial for others. In fact, there are many school volunteer programs that dedicate to assisting people in need. However, quite a few charitable and volunteer activities conducted by young people are out of practical purposes. Some people do it for gaining extra credits while others want to make their resume more attractive by adding those experiences.

All in all, today’s young people are less willing to help others than previous generations because they are in a different period of time. Despite the fact that they are born to be less warm-hearted, our society still needs to make efforts to improve this situation
