The in your face over exposure to "everything " now , the whole internet and media l think will turn out to be the most destroying thing man's come uo with yet, Worse than bombs when we see where all this leads to in 20 or 50yrs time.
It's just mind boggling sad to think where all this and kids growing up then and people will be in 20 yrs time.

And l tell ya , what some schools are teaching kids these days is disturbing too and that's putting it politely.
Even the way they're teaching but you'd think we could at least still feel safe in education if anywhere wouldn't you. l'm just glad my daughters coming out of her education and schools soon and not starting in prep.
But, sometimes teaching is a nearly impossible task because of all of the behavior problems the teachers have to deal with. It leaves no time for teaching. I've been watching a show on TV (Viceland channel, I believe) called "Last Chance High." It's about the only "last stop before juvy" high school in Chicago. These poor kids in this school.....they are all SO angry because of terrible home lives....anger and fighting is all they know. Many of them will even say, "all I want to do is fight. I have so much anger in me." And the teachers play referee all day long and try to squeeze in a little teaching. It seems to me that it's 80% classroom management and 20% teaching!

My world is just so completely different than this....it's so eye-opening and completely heartbreaking to see it. I was telling a friend of mine about the show recently, and he lives in Chicago. He said even the people who manage to "get out" often "go back in" (to the ghetto) because being "out" is like a whole 'nother culture they have no clue how to relate to/live in so they go back to what they know .

PS , when l said l do btw , that was l do believe social media and everything around it is doing all this, yes. Most def'.

Hell 50% of marriage breaks ups start with an affair on FB , texting and emailing,

Your wife or husband can be curdled up with you on the couch or in bed and talking to their affair at the same time. Nice.!
FB alone has broken up more marriages and families than anything else on this planet.
l think it's also caused more suicides than anything else on the planet too.

Not to mention it has given the "next generation" a completely ridiculous idea of what "success" is. Just this morning I saw a show on TV called "Growing up Supermodel." It is a "reality" show about the children of former super models, and all of them are also trying to be models. But the way it's "done" these days is by marketing themselves on Instagram and tagging whatever retailer they are "working for." So, it's selfies, and they get paid based on their number of followers and likes. Their entire self worth is wrapped up in their Instagram accounts! It is insane!

IMHO the good parents tried to teach virtues to their children, but most lost to many factors. The biggest probably was to bad friends, bad tv role models and actually believing in bad music lyrics. Another is parents working too much and not having any time to talk to their children. Kids will look for directions and unfortunately get bad ones and so starts the free-fall.
