I hear a lot of comments that teens these days only care about themselves.
I don't think teenagers were any different when I was one. Sounds like it's all part of growing up.
IMO it's the opposite overall. I was a teen of the 80s and seems like we mostly spent our time on video games and watching MTV, now a lot of them are out volunteering in ways we never did. My youth group volunteered here and there but nothing like so many teens of now.
Sure, they want things like coach purses, we wanted Calvin Klein Jeans.
they have things like x-boxes and Wii games, we had things like Atari.
the things they have/want aren't cheap, but neither were a lot of things we had for the time.
I don't think the kids of today are so bad :)

I have to agree w/ jodi205 on this one. While I understand some of it comes w/ just being a teen, this generation tends to be more disrespectful to authority, has a huge sense of entitlement & doesnt was to work for or earn what they want. I think the real world will end up slapping them in the face w/ a big dose of reality.
