It's easy to feel like you are the only one dealing with difficult children until you come on this board and read someones post and think "that sounds exactly like me". It just seems that kids these days (sound like something an old person would say) are just plain worse than when I was a kid. I know I wasn't perfect (pretty close), my brother was the wild one, but even he would be considered a saint when compared to a lot of the kids I know today. Are kids are worse today than ever? If so, why? food additives, video games, society?
