I think , as long as  youth changes ;  meanings , notions , expressions change.For example ; happiness and consumption …

Children was happy with one wafer at old time . Watch them while they  was laughing  gave  happiness to people. We keep  them from smiling at the moment . It is too normal , for both us and waiting for smile . People sacrifice smile saying changed . Maybe , we can not be happy with wafer , anymore . But , we are tickled by good chocolate thanks to consumption  .

When we talking about meaning , expressions , we can give more sample . Firstly , Games …

Game , is the way to identify the external world for children. So,the children learn their social roles . Thanks to games,the children are getting more social. Also,it is important to select friends and toys.

    A few generations ago,children make their toys by themselves. They were playing toys with their friends.They had a few toys and toys are important for them. They were able to use their toys for different purposes.Their imaginations were very rich. they were known solidarity and sharing very well.

But,now this situation is different for new generation. They don’t make their toys by themselves. The companies imagines instead of children , children can’t. Parents buy this toys for their child.Happy children,happy parents and happy companies. Is that real ?

To imagine is important for our personality. The toys on markets are uniform. Children aren’t able to dream as in the past.. Parents work hard and want to show interest in their children. They buy the toys to children and they become good parents. Toys are not just a product. They are an educational tool. Selection of the toy also important for health. Many firms use cheap materials. This situation threatens the health of children.

Families should be informed about the choice of toys.Children are important.Choose the right toys and contribute to your children personality.

Then , it is a changed something , visits. It changed to now from old . when people went to somewhere , they stayed so long time.,.as some telling stories . visits were driving one or two years .because, houses were far away from each other. and. they had no vehicles in that time . If somebody stayed one – two hours, they had to endure load.

Visit’s time was reduced with time . people started to have car , houses started to build close to each other. So, journey became quickly . to me, there didn’t stay talking topic . aim of visits is either to show new their clothes or new their houses . of course, it was effected from technology too . because most programmes show facility . so we can talk to people only thanks to them .

Yes , we are changing and when we change , we update some value .
