Each new generation is a fresh invasion of savages is a perfectly true statement. We all can see the changes in this generation compared to the previous one. The children these days don't listen to their parents and they think of themselves better than them. Why is this so?
It's because the technology evolved, New inventions are making life easier. These children don't socialize at home and all they do is stare at the 12-inch screen right in front of their eyes for complete 24 hours or so. They won't eat unless they are watching something on Youtube and they won't even care if they get grounded if they have their 12-inch in their hands.
Reading books is no longer a tradition. These kids skip the reading part and watch the movie saying that 'it would be more thrilling' to watch than reading.
Parents experience difficulty in raising their kids because they think that they know more than their parents because these things never existed in their childhood. They argue back, Shout at them or even threaten to leave the house if they don't get what they want. Poor parents don't have any choice left to this sort of rebellious behaviour. All they can do now is sit back and agree what their child says.

"Every generation blames the one before" -Mike and the Mechanics
As each generation ages, They mellow and conform. They buy into their society; or as it is seen by the younger generation they sell out. The up and coming generation is hungry and arrogant and see the older for what they have become. The fact that teenagers are disrespectful is not news and it is not new to this generation. My generation was called X. We were called slackers, Disaffected and cynical (The MTV Generation). Replace the "12 inch screen" in the opening argument with the "Television and Nintendo" and the argument could be made 30 years ago about my generation. Before that it was the FM radio and songs like "Louie Louie" messing up the kids and I am sure that when the wheel was invented the older folks complained that " These kids are lazy! What with their rolling carts. 'Put your back into it! '"
Every generation looks at the next and sees themselves as young people. This is scary because we (the older generation) were quite ignorant. Most of us grow and learn and mellow. The Millennial generation will grow up, Make mistakes, Learn, And conform. When they do, They will look at the young people around them and worry about what the world is coming to.

I do not feel you are taking your argument seriously. . .
But I shall continue with another song.

Thank you
"Mike and the Mechanics

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door

I know that I'm a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilled conversations
I'm afraid that's all we've got

You say you just don't see it
He says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defense

Say it loud, Say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It's the bitterness that lasts

So don't yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different date
And if you don't give up, And don't give in
You may just be O. K.

Say it loud, Say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

I wasn't there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn't get to tell him
All the things I had to say

I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I'm sure I heard his echo
In my baby's new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Say it loud, Say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye
Say it loud, Say it clear. . .

I"m pretty sure only Gen X and Millenials were rebellious, Gen Z seems fine.
