When immigrants move to a new destination they struggle to adapt to the environment because they tend to shy away from their cultural background.
People now want freedom more than anything in their lives, and to be able to do their own things. The lifestyles of American families have been changed; people now have the right to speak up, even if they are students. There is no punishment for children, because it's against the law.
