Jump on the internet today and you will find no shortage of articles lamenting the generation known as Millennials. Entitled, spoilt, low resistance, addicted to technology, no understanding of how tough life can be – these are just some of the complaints you will find. However, children aren’t raised in a vacuum and one child-rearing expert has finally pointed the finger at the other half of the problem – the parents.
Parenting guru Dr Bay Beboomer (61) has ruffled the feathers of parents everywhere by openly moving the finger of blame away from Millenials and pointing it at the parents. Dr Bay had some harsh words to say.
“When was the last time you saw a four-year-old walk into an Apple store and buy an iPad? Never, that’s when. It’s the parents who are giving in to the little shits demands and turning them into great big giant turds,” said Dr Bay eloquently as possible. “These kids pissed and moaned and when they didn’t get their way they cried until they did, but ultimately it was the parents who caved.”
While there is a lot of truth to Dr Bay’s claims, another issue is the government stepping in and not allowing parents to smack their kids. Associate Professor Maffew Sheargold of DrunkenSober Community College had this to say: “Smack ‘em all!”
Well, there you have it. So next time someone starts complaining about Millennials, take notice of their age – if their kids are old enough to qualify as a Millennial, they may very well be part of the problem.
