As a parent, it was deeply shocking to see how cruel and raw these “kids” acted towards poor 68 year old bus monitor Karen Klein. It is also a wake up call that children these days grow up much faster than they did when I was a child in the 80s and 90s – mainly thanks to or blame of the internet age.

Who is to blame?

The internet? Parents? Social media? The kids themselves? Poverty? The economy? Probably all in combination. Parents these days are busier where both parents work in order to meet the demands of an ever demanding economy. This is one of the main reasons I work from home. Yes having an office would make it easier but as a parent, I need to prioritize the future of my son. I know that there are no guarantees but at least I must do the best I can for my son.
