Many things have changed over the past decades. Same can be said about the life of modern teenagers. Today teens are more independent, have other interests, and are definitely lazier than before. Computer is the root of most changes in the society. Modern teenagers spend almost all their free time online, playing computer games, chatting with friends, surfing social networks, instead of going out and doing some outdoor activities.
If you ask a teenager what the life was like twenty or thirty years ago, he won’t answer, because he doesn’t know. Modern children simply can’t imagine their life without cell phones, tablets and MP3 players. These gadgets have gradually replaced the whole world of childish games and live communication. Previous generations of teenagers could still be seen in the streets jumping, running around and playing active games. Today, teenagers are mostly seen online. From the one hand, it’s certainly not good. From the other hand, this can be understood. How can children avoid electronic toys if they are everywhere? Other than that, the life of teenagers is not easy. They have a number of problems, which they don’t want to discuss with adults.
Doing household chores is a necessary part of our life. My brothe and I have a lot of duties. My parents are often tired and we must take care of them. Everybody is happy when their home is bright and clean. I think that doing my household chores is fun. I sweep the floor, tidy my room, clean the shoes, dust the furniture, make food myself and do every kind of work. It’s not easy to do every kind of work at home, but I try to learn doing everything myself. Very often I go to the market with my mother. We buy some vegetables and fruit. Then I help my Mum to carry them. We also have got a country house. There is a big garden with many trees, bushes and flowers in it. There is a lot of work in our garden as well and I help my parents to do it. We sweep the yard, cut away dry and useless branches of the trees, weed the flowerbeds and walk the dog. I usually clean the flat on Friday. I believe that doing some chores makes a man feel fine and satisfied with his own life.
