Kids forty or fifty, nay, not even 25 years ago, years ago did not act as they do today. There was actually DISCIPLINE instated back then. To say
otherwise is not truthful.
No, to say so is my opinion. Just as it is your opinion to speak in opposition.
Nothing has changed but the date and the level of media exposure. When kids acted up years ago, it didn't make it's way on the nightly news.
Parents dealt with issues in house and that was that. If it did go to the court of law, they were not offered the same privileges they are today. It
wasn't that long ago that a child was viewed just as an adult when convicted of a crime.
Granted, kids today have been enabled to take their level of deviance to a new found level. But that is accredited to society itself for affording
the means and the technology.
Deviance is deviance. Very little has changed.
Only today we are bombarded with it on a nightly basis with each days news telling us what kids have done what.
It's called heightened awareness.
