I was reading the comments and someone commented that children of the 80s are the entitlement generation.

I had never heard of this before.

Are children of the 80s entitled?

Oops forget to post the link lol

Re: Spoiled kids of the 80s?

I think every generation thinks the one coming up after it is spoiled and entitled.

Kids these days, ya know?

I agree. I even remember hearing the same thing about the baby boomers when I was growing up.

I still think the kids of the 2000s are spoiled.

Sent from my Inspire. Hope everything makes sense!

In general we have this idea that with each successive generation comes more opportunity, more conveniences, more chances for leisure. And so everyone thinks that the generation that comes after them has had the world handed to them on a silver platter, and they don't even appreciate it. You know, the whole "When I was a kid I had to walk uphill in the snow both ways" syndrome. We think we've struggled and they've been coddled.

Re: Spoiled kids of the 80s?

In England at least (although it would make sense in the US too, what with Reagan) Margaret Thatcher's politics are widely seen as having given rise to a generation of people who were out for themselves, self-important, scornful of others and of society at large.

There's a large number of Americans who think those are desirable traits, and that Reagan is a demi-god
