I just read an interesting article (not the Onion this time) http://www.msn.com/en-us/health/healthtrending/a-40-year-study-finds-generation-z-is-avoiding-sex-alcohol-and-driving-like-never-before/ar-AAscPud?li=AA5LBhu&ocid=ientp comparing GenZ kids (currently teens) to GenY (the young adults).
Basically, it states that the GenZ are less likely to drink alcohol, have sex, drive, or go out without their parents than the previous generation.
That got me to thinking -- are the GenZ kids more socially acceptable than the previous generation?
I know we have had several discussions concerning the manners of people degrading over the years to a point that "Me" is the only thing that matters. Have we reached a turning point with the new generation?
In my experiences, both on the ship and off, it seems to me that the kids (age 18 and below) are generally better behaved than the kids of 10 years ago, and much better behaved than the 20-somethings. Although there are exceptions, I believe this to be the trend.
Perhaps there is hope for the human race? What are your thoughts?
