Good Advice for Teens or Way too Harsh?
Some people may feel like these days kids are treated too softly and get away with a lot more than they would have in generations past. To illustrate this theme, let’s take a look at a newspaper column that is apparently from 1959 which has been making the rounds online.
In it, the author reproduces the words of a local judge who urges teenagers to,
…go home, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job…
It continues in that same theme before getting to the real meat of His Honor’s feelings,
…grow up, stop being a cry baby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone not a wishbone.
So what do you think, good advice for today’s teenagers or is it antiquated authoritarianism? Let us know what you think in the comments section!
