Title: Do you think kids born today will have better or worse lives than their parents?
Post by: camellia0 on June 01, 2018, 04:34:21 pm
With all the shootings in schools and malls, I think kids will have a worse life than us parents. Kids are committing way too many crimes and killing innocent people.

Mass shootings isn't anything new. Other than that, the lives of kids could be better but if PC culture continues, then their lives may get worse.

Kids are lazy now...want everything handed to them...all there worried about is video games and the stupid cellphones, they don't know how to lose or win...everybody gets a trophy for just showing up.

Fatherless families with no male role model, or if there is one he's a loser that doesn't want anything to do with the kids...too easy to get a divorce and just walk away.

Kids shooting up schools and blame on gunowners...we had guns everywhere when I was a kid....if you wanted to see one, ask your parent....but boy if you touched one without asking you couldn't sit down for a week.

To me it all depends on the kid, the environment they grow up in and their parents. Whether it's a good or bad environment with good or bad parents it depends on what choice that kid makes. A example is: Luke is a addict and he has two children. One of his kids becomes a addict just like him while the other is a "regular" person, they are asked what made them who they today and they both respond my father.  There has always been horrible things in the world and always will be but the same goes for great things, in the end it all comes down to the decision you choose for yourself. Hopefully, in my opinion, school shooters and people alike (murderers & terrorists) they deserve to get death penalty or life in solitary immediately.

I think their lives will be worse than my generation's.  Too much is readily available to them now days ~ especially bad things.

Worse.  There will be no more social security.  a lot of them are immigrants or from immigrants and who knows what's going to happen - if they're going to be allowed to stay in this country or kicked out.  Many things have gone haywire for kids these days.

Things today are much worse than in our parents' day.  So I believe it goes without saying that everyone, young, old or somewhere in between are experiencing worse. ( 2 Timothy 3:1-5 )

However, all is not lost.  There will be a time, soon, where everything will improve.  In Jehovah God's due time, all who obey His ways will enjoy life as it was always meant to be.

This really isn't new to this generation. Our knowledge of these incidents has greatly increased due to social media, etc. and always being plugged in.

Much worse. Kids today are taught nonsense, not fundamentals.

Some teachers won't give a bad grade, so the child does not feel good.  They are teaching kids on topics that should be taught by their parents, with the teachers value system.

Kids know nothing about the foundations of this country, but learn bad and disrespectful attitudes without understanding.

Our country is in big trouble, and I have concerns for my great-grandchildren.

It depends - a lot of things are at risk, like SS, debt, etc., which might make it worse, but other things are better such as technology, etc....culture, values, smart decisions, etc might influence which way our country moves

I think my kids will be alright. Their degrees and educational focus are very international and they have already started seeing the world. They are able to form their own opinions and try to avoid situations with potential for major trouble. They have savings in several venues so that if one country sours another will be available. They know to look at several sources for news so that they are not victims of propaganda. They have respect for human life, do not believe in bullying, and are faithful. I am not so sure that the majority of kids have this security. Other kids are easily directed into believing just about anything and keep a dedication to powers that may not have the best interests of our children's future in mind. My son has talked about living in Germany and my daughter has a boyfriend in the United Kingdom. Fingers crossed.

It's hard to say, I think a lot will depend on the child and will all children have equal access to education and other opportunities that will help them to have a better life and how motivated they are to work after things and not just feel it should be given to them.

.

Totally depends on the kid and where they live.  I am not sure that violence is that much worse than it was a few years ago or if it is just that now the instant it happens it goes out to every cell phone in the free world so you know about things that use to you didn't.  We even know about smart mouthed punks talking back to their teachers on the other side of the world.

Worse lives. Not just the shootings, but the economy. Less job prospects, tighter money, less opportunities to live and have a family. I would not want to be a kid starting out right now.

I canít really say. Itís only a matter of making sure the kids are happy and safe enough throughout their lives.

I feel kids born today will have worse lives. They have to go to school in fear, hoping they have enough money to go to college and not take advantage of loans.

I think it will be worse. What is going to happen when they maybe grow up and get out into the real world and find out not everything is handed too you. Yes there a lot of  kids will grow up and be great people. But so many are down right spoiled and let have their own way.  But the real world   is so hard. Without  knowing how to take care of yourself and how to work is just  going to be very hard for them.

As much as I hate to say it, I think it will be worse.  Kids aren't being taught right from wrong anymore.  Parents are sticking kids in front of televisions with violent video games and expecting them to grow up with good morals.

That depend on a lot of things.  Kids have to want a better life and work for it.  Sometimes other things can happen to put a damper on a lot of things.  My child has a better life because I instilled in her what has to be done to get a better life.

Think it is worse.  There is too much hate in this country and economically they have it harder.  They are paying huge student loans for a degree that they may or may not end up using.  A high school education for my generation was good enough to get a good job but now you need that piece of paper which may not mean a thing.  I have 2 children that both have their master's degree and one is not able to obtain a job in his field of studies and the other is working 2 part time jobs in her field because she needs the experience to get a full time job in her field.

I think they have a worst life because social services had to get involved with how you raise your children.  A spanking never killed me, it only made me a better person.  I never talked back like kids do today.  There is a difference in a spanking and a beating.

Well, you canít trust or depend on a political president or governor to set things right anymore. We humans are being gradually phased out by technology, and the most ordinary heroes and heroines are being phased out faster!

Statistically worse, but that doesn't mean that those with opportunity won't be better off.

Just talking about this yesterday. I wouldn't want to be bringing kids into this world today, especially if it remains the same as it is now. Hopefully things will get better.
