Children of successive generations are getting smarter.
Do you think it is going to have a negative impact in any aspect of their life later on?
Are they getting smarter or only responding to a generational technology? Studies state that they will loose their ability to concentrate on one subject. But studies change every five years.
I am inclined to disagree. Successive generations are not getting smarter, quite the opposite. As life gets faster there is less of an inclination to think thing out and develop a sense of the appropriate and inappropriate. Each successive generation seems to be rushing headlong into a world where their needs and wants come first. There are,certainly, enough examples from adults of the appropriateness of this attitude. Children learn what they see and if, as adults, we show them the selfish and worst of human nature, this is what they will learn and mimic.
That is an improvement on previous generation, i think it is very healthy indeed.
Are they? I've seen no evidence to suggest that the latest generation of children dress smarter than previous generations, or if you insist on using that word to mean inteligent, are any more intelligent than previous generations. Being presumptious about their inteligence may increase their arrogance.
The world changes every day and new ways of doing everything change, too. Our children will be smarter than us for sure because they have better learning and education than us.

Are future generations going to look back on those against marriage between gay people....the same way we now look back on those against interracial marriage years ago? Isn't it exactly the same thing? So will it likely result in the same type of view 40 years from now, or is something special...
