Someone mentioned (Sascha?) that individualism is less encouraged in Poland than in western Europe for example.
I don't agree at all.
idolise the same celebs
haha. Are you kidding?
This question is stupid because everyone is different. It's like asking does every Pole like cabbage. I know kids who are very unmannered and those who are really mannered. I know teens who like classical or jazz music and I know teens who like pop. I know those who are excited about celebs lives and those who are more excited about high culture events (the second group is much bigger though). Everyone has it's own interests and asking such questions as if we were talking about homogenius group is just ridiculous.
MTV (Mannerless Toxic Vision)
Most people watch MTV just to poke fun on people who takes part in MTV shows. It's like discovering unknown world were everyone is shallow... ;)
young people on a daily basis (teachers, coaches, disco owners, etc.) have to say on the subject.
There are two Poland. First Poland is Poland of middle class were kids are sometimes a little bit spoilt but they try to behave. They have their own hobbies and the future.
Second Poland is the Poland of "chavs". Chavs are neglicted. No one brings them up because their parents are pretty often addicted to alcohol or works too many hours to give their kids proper upbringing. Those kids stay on streets whole day and involves in risky behaviour. They have problems in school, many of them them become football hooligans, they have no future or really hazy future.
The obligation of society is to take care of the second group and bring them up if their parents can't do that. Unfotunately in Poland no one (including schools) feels obliged to do that.
