It's really not just "these" days. Sure, the times may have changed, but I am more than positive that young boys all through history have gotten themselves hurt doing stupid things to try and seem cool... I really don't know why it bothers me when people complain about this or that generation. Kids have always, and will always, do stupid shit. Dumbfucks frequent history.
i remember one time, many months ago.. i was watching tv and i saw (i think it was for insurance) a commercial. the one where the guy is supposed to be like everything that could go wrong with your car so later i went outside and climbed up a rather large tree and stood on a branch and started yelling "shaky shaky shaky" and as i was halfway through saying the last shaky the branch snapped and landed on my butt.. hard. So everyone does stupid things as kids not just for an extreme selfie
Although the advancement in technology has led to bad habits in today's generation, our parents and grandparents had their share of bad habits back in the day. They smoked and drank underage. While that is still around today, (unfortunately), it is far less common today to see a 14 year old smoking than 50 years ago.
No it isn't just these days kids have always have done stupid things. Though it often seems like though the the generation growing up not knowing a time without the internet is worse. Whether that's correct because they are predominately more closed off from experiences that would teach them common sense or it's just more published there is a jump. Though 10 years ago I don't remember reading as many stories about dumb kids. And if I did usually it involved spring break.
Ok first of all 71, the boy would have climbed the tree and quite possibly fallen out of said tree regardless of technology (I mean boys will be boys right?) and second of all... I do not believe you have the right to call this generation stupid when you use the phrase 'leads to dumber and stupider kids'
