Common Misconceptions of Grown-ups about Youngsters    

 

You think you know everything because you are old but you have to give younger generations due credit. Yes, they still need to prove their selves and it is not always a smooth journey but it doesn’t give you the right to criticize and make assumptions about them based on whatever you see.

Young generations these days are being stereotyped. Many people think of younger generations as miserable, fearless, bold and selfish. You have to know that stereotyping is not good and not necessary true. You have to believe that younger generations are capable of setting things right.

In a study, Dr. Jeffrey Arnett from Clark University created the “emerging adulthood”. When you hear it, it refers to a period between ages eighteen and twenty nine. He found out that grown-ups oftentimes misinterpret emerging adults. Grown-ups think of the following about “emerging adults”:

  • Emerging adults are depressed and stressed: It is true that emerging adults feel depressed, anxious and stressed-out but not all the time. Even if that is the case, they still find the light and feel excited or enthusiastic about something. Sometimes, you envy their vigour and strength. The point here is emerging adults are not that depressed and stressed-out all the time.
  • Emerging adults are narcissistic and selfish: Older people often judge an emerging adult’s rapid switching of job as a sign of selfishness and laziness. Dr. Arnett doesn’t believe so. You may see this as an act of selfishness and hastiness but in truth, emerging adults are idealistic. If emerging adults are not happy, they would rather resign from their stable job than to get stuck to it even if it pays well.
  • Emerging adults are cynical about relationships: You cannot blame the dwindling of marriages to emerging adults because they are distrustful of its essence. Marriages break and that is not entirely the fault of emerging adults. The truth is, Dr. Arnett’s study revealed that emerging adults expect to have a marriage that will last a lifetime.    

This period in an individual’s life is critical and so the parents together with teachers should guide them. Life will not always be rainbows and butterflies. The important thing is as young as you are, you already know some realities.

Here in Singapore, emerging adults are the future so there is no reason to doubt them. They are capable of making decisions – whether good or bad, it can affect Singapore at the end of the day.

Car Washing Practices to Avoid  

 

Admit it, you love to drive along the city but when your car is dirty, you get embarrassed. A muddy car is normal but it is terrible if there are hardened dirt and smudges. You can grace the roads of Singapore with clean and neat car. Perhaps car wash will interest you – at least for the weekend.

Your weekend will be productive if you personally wash your car. Many Singaporeans think that washing the car is a simple chore but it is quite the opposite actually. The mere act of scrubbing the car’s interior and exterior demands a lot of work. If you do not do it right, your efforts will surely be in vain.

There is a system when washing the car – not many know it. You are fortunate to come across this article because you will learn the secrets that will make your car look polished and neat.  This article will discuss about the common mistakes of washing the car and its remedy. Here are some mistakes Singaporeans make when cleaning the car:

  • Washing under the sun: You think that washing under the sun will quickly dry the car but that is where you are wrong. It is true that the car will dry quickly under the sun but water spots will form – which are an unpleasant sight. The best time to wash the car is at the morning or evening and never under the scourging heat.
  • Using dish washing liquid: Dish washing liquids are effective when it comes to cleaning but it should only stay in the kitchen. If you add this to your car washing regime, it can surely affect the paint which will lead to scratches. To be safe, it is crucial that you look for the right car washing liquid.

  • You need two buckets: You often see your parents wash cars using one bucket. While this may save you a lot of water and time, this is not ideal because it can cause scratching. You have to provide two buckets – one for the soap and the other one for rinsing.
  • There is no such thing as right cleaning motion: There are some who clean the car aimlessly from left to right and bottom to top. Without clear direction, you may cause streaks. The right cleaning motion should be from top to bottom and never from left to right or the combination of both.
  • Not cleaning the tires: You clean other parts of the car because you believe they are dirty but what about the tires? Tires are the dirtiest part of the car thereby it should be cleaned as well.
  • Rolling down the windows for quick drying: You roll windows to hasten the drying of your car’s interior. The average drying time of a car is about three hours. If you roll windows, you hasten the drying but it will allow water streaks.
