Kids these days….

“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers."



When I read this quote during a presentation at our kids school last week (a great one by the way, given by Greg Dale of Excellence in Performance), I thought…“yep, that’s for sure!”


Here’s the kicker.


It was written by Socrates well over 2000 years ago.


We all laughed and realized that kids are kids are kids…and we only have the above perspective when we are not one anymore.And, that my parents thought the same of me, and their parents thought the same of them and, as written in the great book, The Giver, back and back and back….


Amazing how things change the more they just stay the same!
