It’s not just the abundance of things that concerns me. It’s their ungrateful attitude about their possessions. Additionally, they are eating too much junk food and they have far too much leisure time. The epidemic of obesity is just one symptom of an inner illness that pervades our young. Their time spent on electronics resembles that of an addict. Their obsessive and self-centered use of social media seems narcissistic. In short, I‘m worried because this generation wants more and more, faster and faster. Where does it go from here?
Children should have everything they need and some of the things they want but we must put limits on it because moderation and appreciation is tremendously important for children to learn.
