Family-life is not as important before as young people today chose to leave parental home and move around a lot in search of job or educational opportunities.
They live in a rented house, rather than live with parents or extended family.
It is not unusual for many people to defer parenthood and start a family in their late 20s or even 30s.
They main concern for most people is how to earn a living, so they hardly maintain close contact with family. They do not attend family events.
Today’s young people appreciate freedom and privacy, so they hope they have their own circle of friends.
They have become ambitious and greedy. They are concerned about their career achievements, trying hard wo increase wealth. They sometimes regard family commitments as a liability.
Urbanisation and globalisation have presented more career opportunities for young people who have professional skills.
The job market has become intensely competitive, and the cost of living has been on the rise. Technological change has reshaped work patterns, pushing young people to devote more time to work.
Economic development has enabled young people to achieve financial independence. They can live comfortable with the support of parents, so they pay less attention to family life.
Young people have weak bonds with family members and elderly parents experience a sense of loneliness. Working alone in large cities, young workers fell stressed and homesick.
Without the moral support given by family, many working people suffer poor health.
Young people, especially those who have not yet found employment, may struggle to cover basic living expenses, as living apart from parents means that they cannot rely on parents financially.
This social change can have a negative effect on the economy because of low birth rate.
To strengthen family ties, the government should advise people to adjust the mindset and guide them to figure out what matters most in life.
Young people should learn how to manage time effectively. This can help them balance professional and family life effectively.
