Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The rules that societies today expect young people to follow and obey are too strict. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

In every modern society, there are a lot of rules and these rules have been changing in different time. Some people believe that todays'rules for youngesters are too strict. However, in my opinion, the rules that societies expect young people is not too strict compare to the past. I belive this way for two main reasons which I will explore in what follows. To begin with, today rules that society expect young people to follow are more convinient because societies do not force people to obey rules in every aspects of their lives. To state it more clearly, in the past young people do not have many choices in their life and have to follow rules that there were from past without changing. For instance, in the past, young people had to marry with certain people because of thier family rules or their career choices were based on thier family careers. For example, a boy whose father was a doctor, had to study medical science or a girl whose mother was a teacher had to be a teacher.Whereas, today people are able to mary with their loved one and choose thier fieldof study and job themselves regardless of their family's opinion. Moreover, the punishments are more humanized compare to the past.In other words, in the past becuase of severe punishments people had to obbey the rules. If they had not respect the rules and had disobeyed them, society would have not been kind to them and would have punished them or might isolated them; As an example ,my grandfather had to leave his village because he had refused to marry the girl that his family wanted. To conclude, the rules that young people have to obey now is not too strict compare to the past. This is because there are not rules for every aspects of young people's life especially their marriage and job choices. Also, the punishments are not as severe as the past.
