Why Gen Zs need help

I read with interest the commentary, “Why Gen Zs need help especially now to kick the smartphone-fuelled compulsive buying habit”.

Man’s desire is unlimited. It especially goes in tandem with the age prior to retirement. However a person’s fulfilment of his/her desire and expectations should preferably or solely base upon his financial ability and capabilities. Thus, providing proper parental guidance about this principle to children at young age is vital and necessary.

Generation Z is the demographic cohort succeeding Millennials (is anyone born between 1996 and the early-mid 2000s)

Generation Z is generally and digitally literate and have been dubbed “digital natives”

Due to the advancement of technology, it is easily available for young age children to access to all kinds of information, products and services on the internet as far as they have a smartphone in hand.

As all know, the temptations and influences of online advertisements are so great that even sometimes you (as an adult) don’t have a real intention, but you commit it purely out of sudden urge or impulsiveness.

Thus, it is good for us to teach our children the Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs, and also duly guide them to distinctly differentiate, divide or segregate individual needs and desire into different level of categories:

Pragmatically needed or required it in the course of work, living, schooling and social interactions (such as the requirement of pursuing higher education/academic qualifications, job and language skills)

Nice to have it and depending upon your financial and emotional situation, but not necessary require it (For example, keeping different types of pets)

Not necessary or required to have it (keep upgrading to the newest or latest version of smartphones) provided you are financially affordable.

    Dear Ms Teo,
    I fully support you… though this is nothing new but not many parents had the thinking power and wisdom to differentiate between needs and wants.

    Our freedom—as individuals and collectively—is derived from our responsibility to one other.

    Support you… so how do you plan to do it ?

    With freedom comes responsibility.

    You have to blame the elite. $500,000 is need. $1m is want. $2m is greed. $20m bonus is utter waste of taxpayer money.

  • SINGAROAR:

    The writer is right. All purchasers should be need based. However in Singapore there are many who are unable to afford what they need and the nos. are increasing. I disagree that we must use new technology as and when it is released if the technology we have at present meets our needs. Isn’t there wastage of taxpayers’ funds when the govt. keeps hurling new technology constantly at the Public? It is also stressful to keep up to all the various govt. departments requirements because of changes which we are compelled to perform.

    Young people frown at older ones who need to carry their supermarket purchases in plastic bags.
    But may i ask the same people who loudly criticise others what they think of CHANGING MOBILE PHONES EVERY SO OFTEN?
    DOES IT AFFECT *CLIMATE CHANGE* BESIDES AFFECTING FINANCES?
    Do ever-changing newer n newer HARDWARE of such mobile phones cause CARBON EMISSION during production???

    I say even hardy washing machines and TV sets break down FASTER than old ones constructed with LOWER TECHNOLOGY,why so?
    No need consider effects on Climate Change?

    The HYPOCRISY is Glaring.
    Need we say more?
