Specific Purpose: Millennials need higher discipline.Thesis Statement: we’ll be persuading you about the behaviors of millennials in the past and present, types of disciplinary actions as well as the benefits in the future.IntroductionI. A. Just a brief introduction about millennials, they are the generational demographic cohort following Generation X and there are no precise dates for when this cohort starts or ends. (catch attention)B.They are known as the mystery generation. C. I’m going to start off with a quote by Warren Buffett, ‘We don’t have to be smarter than the rest, we have to be more discipline than the rest’ D. We’ll be persuading you about Millennials needing higher discipline. (reveal topic)II. We will try to present it in the most effective manner.A. We have researched this topic, finding information not only based on others experience but it is also psychologically and scientifically proven. (establish credibility)B. We chose this topic because we know that nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes, but it is whether we learn from our mistakes and be more disciplined instead of keep repeating the same mistake. We chose the most common generation that’s often ‘labelled’ as ignorant and ill-disciplined. In order for millennials to have higher discipline, we researched on the more effective methods on how to discipline millennials as well as the reasons behind it. III. We’ll be sharing about the goods and bads attitudes, lifestyle of millennials in comparison to the baby boomers, the importance of discipline, types of disciplinary actions to be implemented and how does it benefit them in the future. (preview main points) BodyI)A) We believe you’ve heard a lot about Millennials, they are obsessed with the technology, they’re immature and spoiled, they’re noncommittal, and they change jobs frequently because they can’t settle down or could be other reasons. As much as there’s a lot of bad attitudes and living lifestyle in millennials, there are also goods in them. Now, let’s take a look at the good attitudes of millennials. Millennials are adventurous. They enjoy experiencing different cultures, trying out new foods and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Recent studies show that there’s approximately 200 million international travelers and 20 percent of it are millennials. Millennials are ambitious. They often get described as self-centered, but if one try to understand millennials, they actually just want to get better at what they’re doing, in terms of their career, families or impact on the world. Millennials are an ambitious group of men and women. In terms of their career, they’re highly educated and most of them had done high-level of internships. It is not surprising that they’ll get bored of their work. They might want to challenge to reach their maximum capabilities as well to learn and to do better. Thus if they’re working at a lower level job for a couple of years, they’ll tend to ask for more. Many described their expectations as ‘unrealistic’, however they are willing to work hard and get there themselves. B) Bad attitudes of millennialsThey are lazy. A 2014 YouGov poll shows that 69 percent of Americans think that those under 30 are lazy. This is because Millennials grew up in an era where technology was starting to evolve throughout the years, devices like Computers, electronic calculators, MP3 players and many other technological aids brought convenience to them.It is a fact that all of these technologies, including those that I have not mentioned aided their lives greatly, but also reduces their capability in thinking of answers on their own, which results in millennials being lazy.They are high on self-esteem.Millennials believe that they’re smarter than they actually are, and they can’t wait to get involved in social institutions like marriage, which need them to start caring for someone else other than them. As sociologist Dr Jean Twenge writes, millennials are uninterested in the society around them, they are less likely to help the environment, less likely to “say they want a job that can help others or to society.” Millennials grew up learning self-esteem and self-love. They were taught that self-love is the greatest love and they should do things that makes them happy regardless of what others think.They are disrespectful Millennials view respect differently from all the other generations, they see themselves as equal players.Since young, they were taught that when they meet an adult, they look them in the eye, introduce themselves clearly, and shake their hand. This is because they are more likely to respect someone due to their behaviors or character, rather than their age or position, which is why they are disrespectful. C) Good lifestyle of millennials. They like to experience different jobs. It is a fact that millennials can’t stay at a job long, there’s approximately 21% of Millennials in 2016 reported switching jobs within the past year, which is more than three times the number of non-millennials who report the same. The reason behind that is because millennials want to gain experience. Through changing jobs, they get to work in different positions, with different co workers and employers, it brings them a more diverse experience, as well as they get to take away something from every different job they hold. Not only that, it also gives them a broader perspective that they can carry throughout their career. D) Bad lifestyle of millennialsThey have lower engagement compared to other generationsMillennials are likely to move around, due to their low engagement in the workplace. According to Gallup, there’s only 29% of millennials who are engaged at work, which is about 3 in 10 are connected to their job. It is disadvantageous to the company as they come for work just to meet the required amount of hours instead of really get engaged in what they do. Millennials smoke more than other generation. According to Ipsos, there’s 23 percent of millennials admit to smoking more than the 35 to 55 year-olds, not only that, more than 1 in 3 young people confess that they hide smoking from others. This is actually bringing harm to one body’s and causing them to die earlier. Transition:After knowing the attitudes and lifestyle of millennials, it is obvious that there’s more bad than good in them, which is why we feel that there’s a need for millennials to be more disciplined. Now,let us compare to the attitudes and lifestyle of baby boomers. Shalini, can you further elaborate what is it all about? II)Who are Baby Boomers?Baby Boomers are those who are born after the world war II between 1946 to 1964. A) Boomers Good AttitudeBaby Boomers are strong work ethicAccording to business insiders, baby boomers are ranked the highest when it comes to being productive, hardworking, a “team player”and mentoring othersThey are hardworking as they were the ones who changed the working systems and also are responsible for it They are experienced and knowledgeable as they have been working for a long timeThey are good team players as their careers define them and their work is important to themOther generations have mentioned that they are committed to their workBaby Boomers are resourcefulAccording to an article by Christopher Pappas, baby boomers were raised in an era where resourcefulness was a necessary trait. Even many of their parents lived through the Great Depression. People often had to make do with what they had. As such, this generation can squeeze every ounce of usefulness out of the online activities, exercises, and tech tools that you offer them. Give them what that they need to solve a problem or tackle a challenge, then leave them to do their things. B) Bad Attitudes of Baby BoomersBaby Boomers makes it hard for other generations to work with themAccording to business insiders, they are ranked the lowest (10%) when it comes to being adaptable and collaborative, making them have a bad attitude as they do not want to adapt to changesThey are difficult to manage, refusing to learn new skills to upgrade themselves, resisting changes and are not up to date with technology despite being the first witness to the rapid change of technology.Generation X have complained that they are not open to new ideas and are unwilling to take risks.While Generation Y have complained that baby boomers do not listen as they have their own views.Baby boomers think that they have the most experience, using that to make risky decisions.C) Good Lifestyle of Baby BoomersThey are disciplined Baby boomers grew up in households where their parents are very strict towards them When they do something wrong, their parents would use slippers, belts, canes and spank on baby boomers to make sure they will not make the same mistake againAs such, this instills a fear in them and they will learn not to make the same mistake againDuring their childhood, there were many historic events such as world war 2 where they knew that they must be disciplined as they did not want their parents to worry about their behavior. II. Baby Boomers are independent Baby boomers were independent of a young age as their fathers had to serve the country in World War 2 They have also seen both their parents had to work during the great depression which had a great effect on them These caused them to work hard and also as their lifestyle, they could not afford to buy the things they want which motivates them to be independent and not give upThese effects cause them to learn how to be independent and seeing their parents suffered during these major events. This causes them to be hardworking as they do not want to be like their parents suffering D) Bad Lifestyle of Baby boomersThey have higher rates of chronic disease, more disability, and lower self-rated health According to a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 13.2% of baby boomers reported “excellent” health compared with 32% of the previous generationBaby boomers were more likely to be obese and they have to use a walking assist device.This shows that they were eating lots of junk food without exercising regularly. It could be due to other factors such as quality rest and stress resilience, but nonetheless, they are leading a bad lifestyle.Transition: Now that I have talked about baby boomers, let me move on to my next main point. Why must discipline be implemented?III) Why must discipline be implementedIt allows one’s life to be more stable and forms a person’s life. A world without discipline, people would get to do anything they want and make mistakes without considering others.It also promotes good human behavior and makes it a more enjoyable place for everyone to live.The most successful people in life exert discipline on a daily basis. It is essential to everyone, without it, the world around us would be chaos.Transition:So Marcus, what are some of the ways that can we do to enforce higher discipline to millennials?IV) Types of disciplinary actions that must be implementedA) What is SpankingIt defines as to strike especially on the buttocks with the open hand Pros of spankingIn a control environment, spanking might be an effective formWhen spanking is done, it must be lovingly administered in a clear and consistent manner and not by abusing their child.By doing in a loving manner, they will understand the message behind it and learn their lesson not to do it again.Spanking can ensure that children will learn how to behave appropriately.Spanking can shock millennials into behaving betterThis is because most children are afraid of the cane and if they dared to disobey their parents, they will be spanked again. B) Implement curfew What is Implementing Curfews?Implementing Curfews is whereby parents implement a curfew on what time should their children be back home by.Therefore, when parents place a curfew, their children will be back within a certain period of timePros of implementing curfewsParents can ensure that their children will be safe when they implement curfews as they do not need to worry what time they will come home.Also, they will have more self-discipline as they know that their parents will punish them for not abiding by the time stated. C) Emotional CommunicationWhat is Emotional Communication?Emotional Communication is whereby parents and children have an intimate talk about their children’s violent behaviour Unlike the other two disciplinary actions, it is a more emotional approach where parents and children have a nice open talkPros of Emotional CommunicationBy talking to their children emotionally, parents will know how their children feel and what they are going through in their life Children will know that their parents actually care and love themTherefore, children can seek their parents help if they have any problems as they can provide useful advice to children.Transition:These are some types of discipline actions used. There might be much more but it depends on each child which discipline action suits them. This is because all these disciplinary actions might actually benefit them in the future, which brings to my next point. How does this benefit them?D) The first benefit is millennials are able to be more motivated in studies.One who is motivated in studies must have self-discipline. It defines as the ability of students to monitor and control their own behaviors, knowing when is the time to play and study. According to a study conducted by Angela Duckworth and Martin Seligman, self-disciplined students performed significantly better than more impulsive students. For example, grades, achievement tests and even admission to a competitive high school program. Students with more self-discipline also focus more on studies than watching television.This proves that student motivation and engagement play an important role in learning and academic achievement. Another benefit is millennials are able to grow into responsible and mature adults when parents enforce higher discipline. This is because, during the process, they will learn how to control their own behaviors and know what is right and wrong.Parents also instill values to their millennials such as respect. It is a key value to the future as if we do not respect others, how do you expect others to respect you?Hence, parents are encouraged to start enforcing higher discipline from young so that when they grow up, they will know exactly what to do.ConclusionI. Clearly, it is evident that millennials need higher discipline as they tend to be lazy, unlike baby boomers who are motivated and committed to what they do. II. However, we mustn’t neglect that millennials are adventurous and willing to overcome obstacles even if it means any changes. III. Therefore, it is more effective when parents enforce higher discipline to millennials from young so that they can apply their knowledge and skills to get a stable job and be a responsible individual.IV. Before I end off my speech, let me quote a saying by Jim Rohn “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment” as we believe that nothing is impossible if we are more disciplined.
