What is with kids today? I have a 13 year old nice who does nothing but follow youtube trends and her brother is obsessed about his looks but is a dunderhead. Since when did kids that young obsess about what they specifically want in boys. When they get older what do you think is gonna be the result of the way things are going? They are under the biggest illusion of youth and freedom when compared to any generation. I almost feel sorry for them and yet angry at how naive they are.
I think that I was lucky to have been born in the mid 1980's and able to grow in the 90's and just miss the things that kids do now. I think that all this social media crap is bringing kids down. I was lucky that the only thing I had was MSN messenger, so you talk to your friends online and that was it.
now there is facebook and twitter, and every kid has a cell phone and the internet. they can get into any social media they want, or find adult content, when they are too young for it. their phones are filled with apps and games and stupid things. Girls may have obsessed with what they want in boys from a fairly young age, I mean most of their toys as children are dolls, plastic kitchen sets, fake food to serve, easy bake ovens. so I think that girls always have some kind of perception of what they want growing up.
What's sad is I agree with you. My generation is so shallow and clueless and immature. I know it's dumb to say people so young are immature but they should at least act like they have a 13 year old's level of sense rather than a 7 year old's.
My bro is almost there but my parents are starting to focus on him more. So hopefully, he won't become like those kids.
There is a quote that goes something like, "parents blames the young generation as if they had nothing to do with it."
I see nothing wrong with following pop culture and being up to date on world happenings, and 30 years ago every little girl was obsessed with her looks and only concerned about being a stay at home wife.
