Is Child Behavior Better or Worse
Than It Was Years Ago?

Before researching...
Questions I asked myself:
What factors interfere with change in behavior?
Will Child behavior get worse or better throughout the years?
How would a child's behavior be different if they weren't exposed to so much technology?
What's being done to improve or promote what's good or bad behavior?
My thoughts before research:
Children's behavior is much worse than it was years ago and it will continue to get worse.
Is child behavior behavior better or worse than it was years ago?

Some studies have found that children are becoming better. They are more intelligent to the significant development of modern technology.
They are becoming mature, deep minded and understand how to deal with problems in every step of life.
Studies have found that children become worse than before. Their behavior has changed a lot and it is not getting any better, in fact it is getting worse everyday.
There is not as many rules and parents are not as strict.
They are not raised with manners and morals.
Parents quickly turn to medicine for help.
Behavior worse than 20 years ago.
There are 3x more kids with behavioral problems than their were 20 years ago
Its harder for teachers and parents to handle disruptive children.
Many parents treat their children with medicine hoping it will help them.
ADHA or behavioral disorder require medical attention, although, other factors contribute to behavioral issues.
Growing up in a broken home
Coming from low-income families; they do not have the necessary tools.
Growing up with multiple siblings.

4-15 year old in 1879, there were 6.8% identified as having behavioral problems, which by 1999 had risen to 18.7%
in 1979, less than 1% of children with disturbed behavior were treated with drug. It has risen to over 8%.
The impact of technology.
Years ago kids would go outside ride bikes, play sports and get lots of exercise. They would make up imaginary games and they didn't need costly devices to keep them entertained.
Today technology has impacted children and families. TV, video games, iPads, and cell phones have taken over young children's mind. They cannot go a second without them. This causes bad behavior and children do not know how to interact with others.
Emotional and Behavioral Difficulties
Maintaining good emotional and behavioral health is a vital part for healthy development and enhances a child's well being.
Children who have emotional or behavioral difficulties may have problems managing their emotions, focusing on tasks and/or controlling their behavior.
Factors that may result to the difficulties are parents, family, race, household income, sex, etc.
Other Statistics
In 2011, a little more than 5% of children ages 4-27 were reported by a parent to have serious difficulties with emotions, concentration, behavior or being able to get alone with others.
In 2011, more males than females ages 4-17 were reported by their parents to have difficulties with behavior.
I believe children's behavior has worsened over the years.
Throughout my research there is more evidence that a child's behavior is worse than it was years ago. If things f not change, I believe it will continue to decline. Even though there is some studies that show behavior is better, there is so much more that tells us behavior is worse.
