The majority of American children/teenagers DO act like this.
I'd say the minority, I'm not American therefore I can not talk for Americans but I doubt that it's the majority. From where I'm from it is not.
Where are you from? I'm speaking as part of the American "Millennial" generation.
Huh. It might just be because we're better than you.
I'm not disrespectful in any means but I don't appreciate it when a person from an older generation tries to lecture me on how hard their life was quote on quote back in the day.. it does my head in..
Ok..so tell me how he's wrong. Tell me more about how your life is in any way as hard as his growing up. What's your biggest worry, losing your iPhone charger?
Um, becoming homeless again, my mom's drug addiction, not getting into a decent college/tuition prices going up, the economy completely collapsing before I have a chance to "grow up", the government completely f*cking us over, etc.
This generalization of this generation is stupid. I mean, the past was way better right? I mean, dropping insane amounts of acid in the 60's/70's was real productive right? I'll admit some of this generation are jackasses, and we've gotten "liberal" about some things, but isn't that the case all around history?
It's nothing new. If anything, blame the past generations for raising the new ones, not the kids themselves. The way my mom raised me was that if i did ANYTHING bad, she'd whoop my ass, and as much as i hated it/hate to admit it, it did have a positive effect, and it kept me out of trouble.
Mate, there are still A LOT of parents whom punish their kids for bad behavior, maybe not with violents, but someway or another they get punished. So don´t act like your generations was the only one that got a punishment for bad behavior.
