One rule that I would like to bring back would be proper manners. Calling women “ma’am” and men “sir”. Also to say, “yes ma’am.” or “no ma’am.” Usually in this generation people will just say “no” or “yeah” without meaning. Not a lot of people use the right terms or proper way of saying things.

Another thing we should bring back that involves manners would be how various teens act when one of them receives something. Some people will not say thank you or anything like that, they will just take it and nod and leave. That is not exactly respectful. People should always be kind especially if someone is giving them a gift or something like that.

An important manner that we should bring back would be to put the phone down while the teenagers are out with friends or family. When someone is talking to a person they do not want to be talking to the back of someone’s phone, they want to talk to that person. They want to have a conversation with the person and not be ignored or blown off.

Phones are becoming a major problem with everyone, mostly tweens and teenagers. Many teenagers do not spend time with family or friends as much. Teens are constantly on their phones, never getting a break from them.

Sometimes when teenagers are out with their families in public they are on their phone the whole time. Teens do not talk to their family.
