Why today’s young people smoke less I have recently in the mirror online read that today’s students will lead a relatively healthy lifestyle. Smoking twice as little as ten years ago, pay attention to healthy diet, more exercise. In a very welcome development. Unfortunately, the explanation of this change of mind by the educational researcher Klaus Hurrelmann in my eyes was anything as welcome but worrisome. Mr Hurrelmann effect young people had seen, that they must be healthy and fit to be performance – based and increasingly competitive on a precarious labour market. The young people turned back traditional values. Security, order, discipline and hard work are experiencing a Renaissance since then “: from the unguarded angle of the citizen in a positive development, isn’t it?” It grows”a sensible, maintain efficient and hard-working generation, which has as its goal, economically and socially, at some point in the safe Port of home to land until retirement to cherish the traditional workplace and to maintain, perhaps even to ascend. Also here can be from hardly anything in this life career, because it always even decides to everyone how he would like to live.
What is so worrying? The motivation of these young people to lead a healthy lifestyle is cause for concern in my eyes (it aside, that excessive and regular drinking sessions, which go beyond the natural experimentation of young people, enjoy still popular). This motivation is based on a huge and ubiquitous power and pressure of competition, starting in elementary school and increases in proportion to the grade level. If taken seriously the assessment by Mr. Hurrelmann, students apparently from the intermediate level more or less in their careers would have to tinker. Find out what is in itself correct. You decide where their strengths are, what is also true. But they do it apparently not only out of a desire, to know themselves better and to test their own skills, but follow the small Career Builder in mind, who diligently put the LEGO pieces together.
