Does anyone else find that there is a huge gap between the over 30's and under 30's?
I guess I'm now pushing towards 40 but when I was growing up we didn't have the internet, mobile phones and online games consoles that are prevalent today. I was one of the lucky ones to have a computer only because my Dad was a computer programmer but it was only the floppy disk games with a green screen :-)
As parents in this age we have so much more to content with compared to our parents. There is now the very real aspect of cyber bullying, online peadophiles and all sorts of things that our parents didn't have to worry about.
It seems that in this generation technology has jumped light years ahead of our "pass down parenting techniques" that the previous generations could fall back on.
What are your thought's on the advances with technology and the battle of parenting now compared to our parents?
