Dear Student,

Being modern has its own benefits and drawbacks. Youngster nowadays want to look 'cool' and so they demand modern gadgets from their parents. They want mobiles, ipods, laptops etc. Their values have shifted from being good to being 'cool'. They do not realise what are the side effects of these things and this commitment to materialism is taking them down in their values. They don't think about their parents or their resources before making such demands. Many youngsters go astray due to easy access to these gadgets and later on they repent. They cause a lot of heartbreak to their parents in the process. Misuse of such things takes its toll and they suffer. This materialistic thirst should be checked on time so that later on it is not regretted.
