Kids nowadays

Have you heard phrase „ahh kids these days…”? 🤔 I keep hearing (mainly from people my age so 25-35) that kids nowadays are lazy, that they are not independent 🤷‍♀️, that they are less intelligent because they read less and „only sit on their phones”, that they are rude… I keep hearing that there’s no hope in younger generations and I couldn’t agree less!👎

First of all, if a kid is rude, doesn’t respect older people then it’s a result of bad parenting and our/my generation shouldn’t complain on younger ones as we are the ones responsible for them and making sure that they’re well-bred 😉.

Second of all, I don’t agree that they’re ruse, less intelligent or any of that anyway! Couple weeks ago I was on a tram on my way to work and an old lady asked a teenage boy for help finding the store she needed. Not only he googled the closest store in the area but he actually got off the tram with her and showed her how to get to that place 🙏. Another time I saw a young boy helping a woman out with a stroller on stairs while plenty older man (same age as the woman) were passing by indifferently 🙄.

At work I have 5 girls in their 20s in my team and they are very willing to work, keen on learning new things and I’d never say that they’re lazy 😉.

And as for intelligence – I keep reading articles that young students invented some new machine that will translate sign language live into any other language, other young student who work on a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and they’re getting closer and closer, other ones who do a lot for ecology…😃 Honestly, there are plenty examples of talented and brilliant young people who are smarter than some of us.

So lets not make assumptions on couple examples (there are different kind of people in every generation), lets not label people and lets not create stereotypes that aren’t true. We should all complain less and try to see what’s best in every human being 🤗.
