    Just by reading that poem , what do you think?

    What I think is simple. On a scale of 1 to 10 , only 1/10 of us , humans , have come to realization on how screwed up things are getting. The new generation may advance in technology , but by brains , I do not think so. Mentality is going down the drain , stupidity is reaching the clouds.

    What do you have to say?

    I agree,
    Most of the new generation don't know how to think.
    And by thinking I mean being aware of what's going on around them and being able to act against it.
    Having logic as their main tool in their life , that with it they can help the world advance not technologically but mentally.
    The pre-industrial revolution generation was far wiser , it's clear that we are getting attached to short lasting materials that on the big scale they have no value at all (diamonds -the not so "rare" rocks- /Smartphones -they change every 3 months-/Artist wannabees -they only advertise bad habits such as greed and lust-)

    The problem is , who to blame for all this mess? Those who work in film industry? The new generation itself? the teen pop idols? capitalists?
    It's just ain't getting any better , let's just w8 for Asians to conquer the world.

    Re: What do you think?

    One thing I'd like to point out that most people don't realize, is the fact that a large portion of a child's behavior and attitude stems from how their parents raise them. (Or grandparents or whoever) Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that's the only reason for a child's behavior, but it is a significant portion of it.

    So I can't help but find it kind of funny and hypocritical when adults (parents) start talking about how, "oh this generation is bla bla bla, this and that" and "in my days I would've this and that" Okay, so why don't you try enstowing your ohsogreat morals and lifestyle to your child like you should, as a parent, if they are so morally right and great.

    But again, don't get me wrong, I agree with the poem and that today's generation is a... hot mess for lack of a better term, and is slowly; no, quickly going down a steep hill. I just wanted to point out parents criticizing the same generation they are raising is pretty hypocritical.

    Children spend most of their time outside (school/friends ect..)
    So the impact that the parents give to their kids nowadays won't be that powerful and in return they will be easily affected by what they see outside -mainly at school- cos , we all know that the schooling system is corrupted and that teachers don't raise anymore , they just give u the information u need to pass an exam like a machine and leave.

    I must say , from my point of view , it's not only parents but also the media to be the cause of this madness in mentality.

    I agree with you, sir Vaulient.

    But don't forget that drugs and alcohol are a part of it. What do you think about the magazines? Full of articles about sex. How about the movies? Full of scenes about sex. And of course the most important one: The porn websites. It's so easy to visit it. Just agree if they ask for your age. I mean... Come on... If you are horny as f*ck, everyone would click on agree!

    It all has a big impact on us. Always think open minded and your key to the answer will always be near.

    Today's generation is a mess. I don't agree with everything the poem says. Mainly the part about kids getting beaten, and nothing being said about it. If a kid comes to school with a scratch, there's practically a full-fledged investigation mounted on the parents/guardians and family/friends who live with the child. People are afraid to lay a hand on their kids, these days. This is part of the problem, in my honest opinion. I am not advocating child abuse, but I am advocating "physical" discipline. My parents beat me when I did something wrong, and that is how I learned right from wrong. You can't "talk" to your kids to discipline them. Part of the human learning process, when it comes to right and wrong, is the idea of the "shock collar". You made a mess and didn't clean it up, smack, so you know whenever you make a mess without cleaning it up, you're going to get smacked. You throw a temper tantrum in the middle of the store, smack, so you know whenever you throw a tantrum in a store, you're going to get smacked. Obviously, this stops working at some point, but it teaches kids how to make decent decisions and how not to be a spoiled fucking brat.

    Kids do not know right from wrong. No matter how old they are. I don't even fully know right from wrong. I'd say until you're around 25 (sometimes later than that), you will not completely understand right from wrong. This is an element that can only be taught by those raising you at a young age, and eventually you start learning it the hard way.

    Kids are smoking and doing drugs because they think it is cool. They don't feel an immediate harm from smoking or doing drugs, so they don't see a problem with it. The kids around them, who probably weren't raised right, start doing it and they pass it onto each other. Kids are cutting themselves because they are selfish and seeking attention. (Of course, that isn't every situation, but it is most of them). These kids want 24/7 attention from their parents, teachers, friends, family, etc. That's what sometimes leads them to kill themselves because they feel it is the only way to achieve that maximum attention. Even if it is only for a short period of time. Yet, these kids don't realize how wrong and how selfish it is to kill yourself. They don't realize that it will cause serious problems in their family. They don't realize that their parents have no choice but to blame themselves, and it could possibly push them to go kill themselves. Parents get divorced mainly because of terrible timing. In most cases, they got married way too early and they were not right for each other in the first place.

    Lesson: Beat your kids. jk lol but people don't know how to raise their kids anymore especially with the way society makes them feel about physically disciplining their kids.

    "Disgusting" is a kid who has absolutely no respect for the world and their parents. If smacking the kid will teach them respect, then by all means, do it. I've said, I do not advocate child abuse. There's no way for me to explain it without being an asshole. However, from what I've seen a spoiled brat is usually the bi-product of a parent who is too afraid to hit their kids.

    I'm not saying smack your kid over spilled milk, but there are times when a small smack on the butt is just enough to show the kid they've done something wrong. You cannot just pretend your kid is innocent in every situation. As a parent, it is your job to teach your kid right from wrong to the best of your ability. I'm not saying to physically abuse your kid, I'm saying a little smack here or there will teach them a lesson.

    Re: What do you think?

    My sister in law has a 16 y/o daughter who is a complete ass to her and does not discipline her at all. The dad just walked out on them and the situation is crap. My two kids aren't perfect but their not out smoking dope, having sex or being the normal dumbass kids of today. My kids are respectful and we keep the grounded with church and teaching them right from wrong. ( We watch COPS a lot) I had to jump my nieces ass the other day because her mom was crying and didn't know what to do. I explained to her my crappy childhood and made her think about what she was doing to her mom. Kids now days can't survive without a phone in their hand or some app like snap chat. Parents now days are the main problem with the new generation of kids. My kids learned at a early age you do some wrong there will be consequences to deal with. I keep their lives as structured as a I can but it's still really hard. I want my kids to be the solution not the problem! I was abused and beat as a child by a drunken step dad. I was whooped with cords, fist, kick with boots and so on. This was a life lesson for me growing up that beating your kids is wrong but disciplining them accordingly is fine. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs nor does my wife. I might curse from time to time but my kids know right from wrong because I'm here teaching and not out clubbing like some retard. @Wreckless this is one thing we can agree on with the new generation of kids!

    P.S My kids will get an ass whooping for doing disrespectful things and back talking is not tolerated.
    Also common core is a pile of crap and it's teaching kids to be complete idiots.

    Re: What do you think?

    Ask yourself something; for those of you who are apart of the older generation (25 and up) - How could you discipline your children in a way were they aren't thinking that you don't care for them and resort to stupid things such as drinking, smoking dope, and cutting.

    I'm 18, yet I grew up in such an independent way, that I laugh at my generation, because a lot of my generation is screwed. I took my studies seriously, I didn't get into pointless relationships and I certainly didn't let bullying affect me because I was different...However, that doesn't mean I am perfect, I had a terrible home life, and it's thanks to people who want to claim my generation is screwed, when... a lot of the older generation made it that way.

    I don't want to put the blame on ANY person - the facts are there though, a lot of my generation can't go to college, a lot of my generation has no respect, and a lot of my generation just DO NOT care, because of the baby-boomer generation and the way the government and economy has been handled by the 'adults' of that generation.

    I've seen more idiocy out of a full-grown adult, who wants to believe he is young enough to party and have fun, when in reality he is 52 years old and looks like a shriveled prune from smoking 4 packs of cigarettes a day.

    My generation has it's faults, but you can't blame us for the way a lot of the world views America (and I say America because that is my nationality and that is literally the worst place for some things.. No other poor family in another nation would be the most obese)

    Take a step back and look at your own actions - if you believe yourself to be in the clear, take no heed to my statement, if you know you have faults, work on them.

    This is all opinionated and to further step into the debate culture, what could you as a responsible person do for yourself and for the people around you instead of blaming others?

    Cheers,
    Christian.

    There's no one person or group to blame though. At a young age (Ages 1-10), the people who are usually to blame are the parents. Note that I said USUALLY because that is not always the case, but it is usually the case. Some people just are not cut out to be parents or mature enough to be parents. How can a kid take care of a kid the same way a mature adult can? That's not to say that ALL young parents are unfit to take of their children, but it is not the best way to raise a child.

    When a child becomes a young teenager (Ages 11-15) then bad behavior, drug use, dropping grades, and teen pregnancy is usually the blame of peers and the environment provided by the school and parents. This, in my opinion, are the years where peer pressure is rampant and bullying is much more problematic. Middle-school aged kids are the worst and they have no filter at all.

    In my honest opinion, it doesn't become the individual's fault until they're nearing their twenties, (Ages 16+). At this age, you're generally capable to make educated decisions, but many things are still determined by the previous stages. You can decide what you want to eat, where you want to sleep, where you want to go, you can start driving yourself, you usually start working and making your own money. But this is also a problem, society (at least in the U.S.) sort of throws all these new responsibilities onto kids at once around the age of 16. With more responsibilities comes more independence and freedom can go a long way, but which way is it going?


    On another note, obesity in North America is not an issue with people over-eating, it's not even an issue with fast food. America is a melting pot of so many nationalities. Unfortunately, that means all the "best" food is pretty much molded into one diet and that is the North American diet.

    According to Dr. Tran Tien,

    An overproduction of insulin may lead to hypoglycemia or low glycemia, which in turn may induce constant sugar cravings and weight gain. One of Insulin’s primary functions is to regulate blood sugar levels, however, it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. Even worse, it "locks" the fat into the fat cell, preventing it from being used as a source of energy. Now, because the blood sugar has dropped (and we can’t access the fat as a fuel source) it creates "sugar cravings' and the vicious cycle begins again. In other words, an over abundance of insulin can cause weight gain.
