    Let’s clarify something first. When I say Asshole I don't mean you abuse verbally, mentally, physically or god forbid sexually ANYBODY, especially children.

    I am part of Generation X and unfortunately we’ve spawned this millennial ME ME ME generation of misfit toys. We have to take responsibility for our mess. At the end of the day we’ve fucked it up for them and in the large scheme of things, EVERYBODY ELSE.


    Why? Because we as a generation didn’t have the BALLS to be the Asshole in our children’s lives. For example, we just couldn’t bear to hear from our kids,

    “That ASSHOLE won’t let me have a cell phone.”

    “That Asshole won’t let me choose EVERY little minutia of my life as a CHILD with still developing cognitive functions of my brain. FUCK THAT ASSHOLE”



    WTF?


    WE DROPPED THE BALL.

    My six year old is scrubbing my driveway right now with a toothbrush. After that he's cleaning the chimneys with a dish brush and some good old fashioned elbow grease. Then he's off to mind the still.

    i think the internet has influenced the millennials quite a bit.

    everyone can attention whore and throw out their shitty opinions (like us, ha ha). i blame political correctness for most of it.

    Meh, it's why I never bought much of the "Greatest Generation" fluff from Tom Brokaw. That generation raised the spoiled narcissists that are the baby boomers.

    We just have to raise them with humility and consideration.
    And an understanding that the only behavior that they control is their own.

    ....and hope their egos and all the tools out there made to indulge them, do not take over.
    :chair:



    I'm doing the best I can here damnit!!:rolleyes:

    Same as when I was a kid, I now see families of my son's friends where you have a good kid and a junior douchebag living under the same roof with the same parents. I certainly don't know the key to it, but I am glad I inherited "The Stare" from my father which lets my boy know the discussion is over and it's time to move on.

    The parents are so now fucked, that I really don't think the children themselves have any hope.... Mandatory military service really might be a good solution....

    With my dad, it was more Michael Corleone than Red Foreman.
