Do all generations think theirs is best?


It seems that every generation thinks all new generations are worse off. Worse music, worse behavior, more "entitlement", worse manners, worse parents, etc. Is this just the way it is? Do we all (collectively) eventually just think our time was the best time?

    Very true. It takes some reflection to appreciate what we had or experienced in our own generation. Thanks!

    It's nice to be able to see the faults along with the positives. I am not sure I've reached an age to be able to fully analyze my own generation, but we also come with a long line of faults which I'm sure will be seen more as our children age.

    Good point. Who we surround ourselves with can certainly change our perspective.

    This certainly seems true. I've heard it for a while, and as I get older I find myself thinking the younger kids are clueless! Thanks for your thoughts Grace!
