IMO One of the biggest mistakes that parents of our generation did was to think that we could give them self-esteem...instead of them finding it for themselves.<quoted text>
I don't blame the youth for the problems of the youth, not all of it anyways.
I think a lot of the problems with kids today is the parents, really it's the lack of parenting from the "mom and dad".
These kids are allowed to do pretty much whatever they want with no fear of consequences. That can't be good for any of us.
I had a neighbor once that invited me over. As she gave me a tour of her home I started seeing crayon drawings all over some of the walls. I guess she could see my surprise because she explained to me that she didn't want to cramp their creativity. LOL
It is my experience that some of the younger generation see the same thing that we are seeing. Lack of responsibility...lack of accountability...lack of respect for others. But you know RR...our parents saw us in the same light...no doubt.
Elvis shaking his hips...Woodstock...tie-die...m ini-skirts...yep...each generation was always the worst.
These kids are no worse in their own way than we were. Hey...my generation introduced drugs, bra burning and free sex! LOL We protested war and painted our Volkswagen with huge ugly flowers!
Biggest difference...we had better music!
Can't beat this one! LOL
