“I have been a physician for 29 years. This sort of language and behavior from a 10-year-old was very rare in the 1980s and 1990s”
Oh this is bullshit. Of course it was. 9-12 yrs old is a snotty age.
My generation (GenX) was extremely snotty to adults. How do I know? They told us exactly the same stuff it says in this article, except it was what they were saying in the 1980s.
I hate BS stories like this. “Kids today”. “Why, when I was younger, this NEVER happened”. Bullshit. Of course it did.
