I like when an older generation understands something about the newer generation, whenever the generational gap is happening.
In the 1950s, comic books and rock ‘n roll were going to destroy civilization. And TV.
In the 1960s, it was TV.
In the 1970s, it was TV.
In the 1980s, it was Dungeons & Dragons, video games, home computers, and TV.
In the 1990s, it was more of the same plus the Internet.
In the 2000s and 2010s, nothing has changed, although added now is: “Online gaming” and “Social Networking”.
Every generation thinks their childhoods are the ones to measure all childhoods by.
But new tools and technologies come by. There’s a lot of good to be found in them if you just look.
