Did you just say “Kids these days.” seriously?


I was sitting in the caf today with my friends, and I hear someone from  behind go “Oh I know, well kids these days!” Honestly, I dint know whether to offended or fall over laughing. A similar situation, I was sitting in an adult Sunday school class when I went to visit my grandparents. I hear one of the older gentlemen comment “My grandson came up to visit me and was always plugged into his little, oh what do they call those things, iPod! He was constantly listening to his iPod. But thats not even real music its all noise! Oh kids these days.” And I was a bit taken aback. Apparently whenever kids misbehave most adults respond grumpily with “Oh kids these days”. Do they not remember who raised us? The younger generation is a direct showing of the previous generations ability. Yes, we are kids. And yes, we will make our own decisions. But we will make them based on what we have learned as young kids. Our parents job was to raise us up in the right way. Proverbs 22:6 says “raise up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (NIV) That statement alone shows our parents job. I will not disagree, I have made poor choices. But I know they were wrong, and I fixed them. That is what my parents raised me to do. Its basic problem solving folks! So to parents please think next time you go “Oh kids these days” and for my fellow adolescents Guys, please just think before you act. Use the good sense your mom and dad gave you. Please share your opinion with me, Id be glad to here it. And hey if you don’t like it, this is Ohio just wait five minutes.
