Final Reflection

After analyzing all the generation's questions and answers it seems that, all the generations grew up in large families. In more older generations they lived near other family members than the younger generations. Household chores weren't really gender specified because everybody had to wash the dishes. Teaching was the first job in older generations growing up in Nigeria than in younger generation in America who doesn't have a job. Older generations enjoy school while the current generation dislike school.Older generations love their family members and find them loving & supportive while the younger generation find them just annoying. Despite all their differences, they can all agree on one thing: This generation sucks.
