There are many differences between the 1990s and the 1960s Many of these comparisons can be found in the 1960s based book That night and a modern day high school In the 1960s the average family ate together relaxed together watched television together and most importantly the average family of the 1960s stayed together Here in the 1990s a large portion of Smithtown high school does not have families that all eat together most do not relax together and a large majority would not be found watching television together A major reason for this is that unlike the 1960s a portion of the families in the 1990s are no longer a complete family One example of difference is an unwed mother In the book That Night Sheryl got pregnant as an unwed teenager In this book one of the main characters Sheryl got pregnant by Rick Sheryl was immediately sent to her aunts house in another state to keep her away from Rick In Smithtown high school an average pregnant teenager would have an abortion Although most people feel that this is unjust to have an abortion at any time in life many people do It is just a fact of life that when you are a teenager you just cant ruin your life Another difference between the book that took place in the 1960s and in a modern day suburb is that many families no longer sit down together to eat dinner In the book every family sat down together and ate a dinner When the dinner is complete they all take to their porches and sit down for a sunset This is always done as a family In a modern high school more than half of the student population does not eat dinner as a whole family In most cases there is after school job involved or a large amount of homework If a survey was taken the majority
