The children whom I have met over the past two months are typical young adults. When I see them, they are in the context of learning, and they are quite resilient to the process. They have been inundated with consumer culture and demand immediate satisfaction; they play video games during the class time; they challenge adults constantly. There is chaos in the classroom on most occasions, and the settling of their tempers remains the central challenge; it is what they use to combat the efforts made to teach them. They bang desks on the floor the moment the teacher's back is turned. They read almost nothing and they seem to care very little for what the teacher says. They are, to put it briefly, children as other generations have been children, really no different.
Thus, there seems to exist a lack of care for what will come, and what will come is worse than what came to any other generation.
