Here in the US, we have a new way of educating today’s young people - Common Core, as it’s known. A total and utter failure. The way they teach math is unfathomably complicated and illogical. It’s truly abhorrent. For instance, when given the problem 5X3 = 15. Nope, you grab the threes and add five of them together. 3+3+3+3+3 = 15. In that regard I feel sorry for the younger generation. It’s totally preparing them for failure at the professional level. Phonics are gone too. You no longer sound words out, you memorize the word. Dumb.
The exposure of teenagers and pre-teens to predatory people is shameful. So many “apps” (I HATE that damn word - not everything is an "app"lication) that create hazards from molesters and rapists. Smartphones need to be bought by someone when they’re 18, what with all this crap like Snapchat and what-have-you exposing kids to bullying and assault. It’s scary.
As far as their attitudes, I find them rather self-absorbed (what do you expect when you take 45 selfies a day?). They tend towards liberalism (neither good nor bad), but a lot of the “scene” is laughable. The dopey hats and facial hair…bah.
They are being raised in a flourishing culture of sex. Look at their musical idols… Now I feel like an old grandma admonishing their kids for liking Elvis the Twisting Pelvis. Can’t take much more clothing off these people before they’re naked. Who knows? Maybe that’s next?
