And that is the difference right? It lies in what children expect.

The children of today expect that which they have not earned. The children of my era, strived to earn.

Earn respect.

Earn love.

Earn money.

Earn a place in community.

Earned through effort.

Not earned because we, were.............born.

Yep.

Nowadays, raising kids you have to cut thru alot of crap interference to deliver that message. My two youngest are 3 years apart and that gap was immense as far as outside influence- phones, TV, internet...

When I was young the outside world couldn’t pump too much into my head outside parental controls.
