Kids these days...

...are socially inept. We are breeding a society of weirdos.

An overweight 9-year-old that cannot hold a decent conversation with an adult and cannot walk without staring at the ground should not have an iPhone with an account for every social media on the planet.

A 13-year-old EMO dude with long black hair shouldn't get mad...no, mad isn't the right word...OFFENDED (wah)...when he gets stared at because he's wearing a death metal outfit with a flaming yellow pokemon ski cap on.

Glad that's off my chest, and yes...I'm getting old.

Every time I see things along the same line I just shake my head.

It's very disturbing the way kids are raised now a days

I don't think it's anything too recent but it does seem to be getting worse. That happens when everyone gets a trophy and grows up believing they're a winner instead of working to become one

Quote:
“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”
