    Re: Children of Today

    I think that kids these days are FAR different than kids of my time. Don't get me wrong, I've had video games in my life since I can remember. But, when I was a kid, we went outside and played, we had imaginary friends, we made forts and tree houses, we went to parks and rode bikes and skateboards, we played baseball in the streets, we threw rocks at squirrels and bee hives--WE WERE KIDS!!

    Kids these days just come out the womb thinkin' they're grown or somethin'. If it's not a video game, it's not fun. If the music isn't talkin' about sex, drugs and money, it isn't music to them. They wanna hang out with the adults and I don't think that's good.

    Today's kids believe that they DESERVE things when they haven't earned them. That's one of the main problems - why we have "wiggas" and "Chavs." Parents give their children money for EXISTING these days - I was lucky to get 50p after doing hard labour all day! My mum always said, "We are a family. We work to make things easier for each other. You don't get paid for being part of this family." My chores were proof that I was a part of the family. (Huzzah, right?) I never got paid for breathing. I was quickly taught the value of money and good grades.

    Children do get things easy these days. I always find it unfair how much my younger brother has compared to when I was his age. Although he complained because we had things he didn't have but there is an age difference. I had to work to get money, he gets what £15 a month of allowance.

    Well that's cuz your parents are older and probably have less energy to give him as much attention as with you in the past. Besides 15 might still not be a whole lot, gotta considering inflation

    Hell back then I can get a gum with a tattoo for 5 cents, now I can't even hire someone overseas to make a shoe for me with 5 cents.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Re: Children of Today

    Children of today... getting worse indeed...

    When it was the good old days this is how kids was here... ^^

    On the field were little boys running around playing soccer...Girls play "congkak" (traditional game) They never shout at their parents unless its for something small like food...they are scared of their dad... They play a lot outside....do rigorous and adventurous activities...running around, climbing trees...swim in the river...go in the bushes...hide and seek...*sighs*

    Nowadays childrens...

    Shout in vulgar words...watch porn even they are just 5- 6 years old...(i know one.. -.-)
    never respect older people including parents and teachers... sit all day at home playing games..and become fat bastards making troubles for parents...smokes from the age of 7?
    Does group moslesting by the age of 8? Lets guys touch all over a girl's body? WTF??!

    I blame Media for most of this "damages" to the mind of kids... Cartoons from disneys? For kids??! Disney's original movies? THOSE are suppose to be ****ing rated PG13 -.- why U? Kissing scenes and all at first...and the kids will slowly think that kissing and stuff is ok..and they go further?... think smoking is cool and do drugs after that?

    Peek parents watching porn... ~.~ Parents that "torture" their childs... Parents that don't give a ****....

    Society that never cares...society that never helps.... society that is selfish....

    *sighs*....

    Re: Children of Today

    well the media always plays a big part in today's society. With all the music that is around, all of the films that are out and with the amount of violence that can be found within games is what more then when I was child. I remember playing Theme Park on my old old old windows 95 computer. At least back then the graphics were simple and didn't really look real so kids didn't start to get too violent. You look at games like Painkiller, Unreal, Halo and any other games where the detail is so clear and real it starts to be imprinted in kids minds, who will accept anything they see.
