"In my time, kids knew how to respect their parents."
Now a days many kids still know how to respect their parents. Those that don't, it is the fault of the parents (those children you raised in your time). Any more, though, it seems like those kids who(more) respect their parents that much never break away. Those parents who know how to raise their kids to be respectful are strong, and love their children. They want to hold on. When the time comes to leave the nest, respect will get you no where with them. They spent so much time respecting their elders, they never had to think about respecting their children.
"In my time, children played outside. We didn't have computers or tvs."
That's right, you didn't. Which means that while there were mass murders and crazies out there snatching up children to hide them in basements, your parents never heard about it until at least much later in a newspaper if at all. With the news so quick and so vicious, is it any wonder that parents do not let their kids out often? If it is difficult and you have to fight to go outside, it trains you to not want to. Too much effort, when sitting on a couch inside on the computer and drowning out the complains of the parents is easier.
In your time, you did things your way. In my time, it is different. I can already see the new generation, and have already fallen into the trap of complaining. But in their time they do things differently as well. Not better, but not worse. Just different. (less)
