This paper show that since the end of World War II, the American people have seen an extraordinary change in the economic, social and moral priorities of the nation and its people. Three generations have grown up since the war, each positively and negatively influenced by their parents and social change. The paper studies the most affluent of the three - the WWII generation; the Baby Boomers who are shaped by the political upheaval in America during their formative years and finally, the Gen-Xers - a generation which saw many cultural firsts. Issues covered are: Raising Kids Differently Than The Generation Before, Influences of Baby Boomers, The Children of Baby Boomers, The Values Passed On By WWII Parents, Work Ethics, Social Changes, The Outcome of Baby Boomer Child-Rearing Methods.
From the Paper:"As time progressed, the baby boomers, who were encouraged by their parents to volunteer and contribute to the community, tossed aside this mentality in favor of making deals over power lunches. As divorce rates climbed and the number of unmarried mothers increased, it became apparent that rampant uninhibited sex was "in." The Baby Boomers parents would find this notion unconceivable.
Basically, Baby Boomers came to treat everything, including people, as if they were disposable and easily replaced. Boomers are known to downsize corporations at the expense of workers, invest in grossly over-valued technology stocks that represent completely intangible products, divorce families, and simply ignore the immature behaviors of politicians."
