Transcript of Are children under the age of 12 growing up in a world than
Many parents are becoming "helicopeter parents" (The Fine Art of Letting Go, 2006)
This means that they hoover their kids and always have to know what they are doing
Smaller families make the parents focus more on them. In bigger families, kids do not get all of the attention (The Fine Art of Letting Go, 2006)
Parents are allowing children to come back home after the graduation of college (The Fine Art of Letting Go, 2006)
Are children under the age of 12 growing up in a different world than college-age students did?
By: Maclayne Stolze
Parents are begining to pay for more items for the kids than they have in the past (Should Kids Pay Their Own Way, 2015)
Kids are not learning the value of the dollar because the parents are not making them pay for their own things.
Most college-age kids grew up in larger families making them have to learn the value of the dollar early in life. If they didn't have the money, then they didn't get that little toy that they wanted.

76% of kids ages 15-19 have cell phones (How Kids Set the (Ring) Tone, 2005)
College age kids did not have cell phones at the age of 15. But if they did, the only thing they could do on it was calling people. There was not a thing called texting. You had to speak to someone in person in order to communicate.
Having kids use technology is allowing teachers to create more STEM based kids (McGovern, 2015)
More parents are using technology to teach little kids (McGovern, 2015)
Kids are being taught how to use technology at a very young age, therefore not going outside and playing with kids like college-age kids did
Social media has began to amplify issues between kids (The Kids Are Alright, 2015)
Kids no longer have privacy. They share all aspects of their lives on social media for the world to see (The Kids Are Alright, 2015)
College-age kids grew up without social media and were forced to solve their problems face-to-face. Social media allows kids to communicate without actually seeing the person. Eye contact has deteriated over the years.
Childhood obesity has quadroupled in the last 30 years (Childhood Obesity Facts, 2015)
Children ages 6-11 increased from 7% in 1980 to 18% in 2012 (Childhood Obesity Facts, 2015)
This is mainly caused by the lack of excersice done by kids. College age kids spent their free time running around outside playing while these younger kids are staying inside playing video games.
Our entertainment was eachother
Playing outside was normal
Kids were not labeled as having ADD or ADHD
It was okay to get hurt and we didn't call everyone a bully
The sun was our friend and we did not lather ourselves in sunblock before going out
There were no promotions for drugs and vaccines for every symptom
We played in the dirt and didn't use antibacterial soap
There was no gluten free, fat free, sugar free, dairy free, etc.

New motto:“Am I getting paid enough for the job I am doing?”
Kids are putting in the least amount of effort
Parents have neglected to teach their kids hard work (Missing Today: A Strong Work Ethic, 2015)
Kids are now wanting instant feedback when it comes to information
Teachers are supplying them with instant grades
They also have the opportunity to Google anything in order to get an answer right away (Instant Feedback in Class: Go With the 'Flow', 2015)
