Has Parenting Really Changed…And Are Our Kids More Lazy?

Photo compliments of NotoriousJEN at Flickr.

 

This week I was slightly retrospect on my childhood, the things that we did, and the stuff that I am, quite frankly, surprised we survived.  I can remember riding down the 15 foot tall mound of dirt with our bikes until we went so vertical that we were thrown over the handlebars.  Or when we thought it would be a good idea to use a speedbump to ramp our bikes over a low hanging chain.  I know, I know.  But at the time it seemed like an awesome idea....

My thoughts began to turn quickly to responsiblity and the levels of perceived "laziness" parents report from their kids.  I began to wonder, what has changed.  Quickly ruling out genetic mutations I fell back to my second most likely question, are we in fact teaching this to our kids?
