I hope for my kids’ sake we never encounter the strife that many others and I have been predicting is coming in this country. I guess I should qualify that statement by saying I should exempt my children (hopefully) and probably yours. They should be able to handle most anything short of a complete societal meltdown.
Whom I’m really speaking of are the kids in their late teens through their 20s who believe their lives are somehow more difficult and trying than any generation preceding them. Sure, every generation has thought that, but it seems this generation is the most fragile yet.
So fraught with psychological trauma that laws need to be enacted as a buffer against the realities of life – as feel-good anti-bullying laws are supposed to do.
There are many examples of young adults being brought up so sheltered, so coddled, that they are literally offended by everything that used to be just part of growing up.
No longer are adults allowed to say “Just suck it up,” or “get over it – it’s not the end of the world.”
