Is it harder to be a parent now than it was for your Grandparents?
The more I think about this the more I want to say yes. There's so much that parents can't control about their kids lives these days. And the entire social media aspect makes it even harder...
The drugs alone make parenting more difficult. And there are other factors adding to the task.
My. 1st reaction was every generation has said that. It's not harder but different. here's the big BUT, we're in extraordinary times like no other. It's got to be more than just different. I know you don't care rand, but good question.
There are more negative forces in society and entertainment fighting against good parenting. It's exponentially harder today.
