Unfair. Talk about children and everyone goes ga ga. “Oh, today’s kids, they are sharp, smart, splendid. (See comments for Papa don’t preach)
Ask about today’s youth and rest assured of the reply: “Oh, today’s youth. They have no values, dumbos. They have no focus.” Blah, blah, blah.
Poor youth (like me!!) are always at the receiving end.
The complaints against youngsters date back to centuries.
See what Socrates wrote about the youth of those days:
“Our youth love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents and tyrannise teachers."
And the tradition continues.
Parents should stop blaming youngsters and accept Gen gap. The gap is widening by the day, and not years.
A woman and daughter were fighting, when a friend advised, “Step into your daughter’s shoes and look at the problem.”
She replied: “Her shoes are small and don't fit me.”
