*Disclaimer: If you don't think this applies to you, then it doesn't. I'm just making casual generalizations about the way many children in modern times seem to behave.

I think they have it easy in life - at least in the 21st century. They can get away with just about everything. They don't have to work, because "participation medals" makes it so they get awards just for showing up ... they can be lazy, because they don't have to worry about the "shame" of failure. They need education, but they have it too easy and so they're not even going to take it seriously. They still feel entitled to not only all these new high-tech toys, but being given the same level of respect as adults. Now, in the past, the big trade-off was that you had to work hard for the chance to succeed; you could still work hard an fail. However, the modern child never learns this lesson, they just go on exploiting the fluffly "everyone's a winner" system they live in. In addition, the rise of this new mentality carries over into adulthood where this idea is then further ingrained into the next generation.

So, having everything taken care for them, the modern child can be as unambitious and self-entitled as they wish.

The modern children act the same as the generation before. The only difference is that they're much smarter.
