Why do the young pick the polar opposite extremists to their groups traditional party?

Traditionally the left was for the working classes to protect them against unscrupulous businessmen and the upper classes. The right was for the privileged, the upper classes and those in business. Yes I know it's a simplification but generally it held true. However I've noticed that the young tend to get attracted to extremists on the opposing side. The daughter of some wealthy landowner finds herself protesting against climate change with far left extremists. The son of a miner from a council estate joins the far right on a anti immigration march.
Do the young just do this to piss their parents off or for other reasons
