Since I'm up late, I was going through some of my friends' blogs. Lajoie wrote an entry about kids these days, and I left a comment.
I decided to post it on here because even though I thought I could write a long entry about it, I'm not sure I can say much more than I did in that comment:
I want to write an entry about this, I'm just not sure how to go about it...and that is...since this seems to be a cultural crisis (horrible kids who don't behave and don't want to listen and bully each other who may end up bums) I wonder where did that parenting style (lack of parenting I suppose) came from? The generation before us shakes their heads at us and tells us how rotten our kids are (not mine specifically - or yours - but you know what I mean). When/where/how did our generation get the notion that this was ok? And did the generation before us fail us somehow?
Have you ever thought about this?
