What Have We Done to the Next Generation?

Thought Piece

What are we doing to our children? They are counting on us to raise them to be healthy, capable adults. They are depending on us to put our own needs aside in the interest of theirs.

But look at how selfish we are!

We placate our distress by keeping our children happy instead of robust.

We live our joys through what we deem as worthy achievements for our kids instead of letting them live their own dreams.

We drain the earth’s resources to make ourselves comfortable instead of leaving enough for subsequent generations.

What have we done? How can we continue to do this? Why are we blaming the younger generations for our selfishness? Who’s the entitled generation really?
