A while ago at an evening event the keynote speaker was Lucian Tarnowski.
He was talking about Generation Y the children of parents born during the baby boom (the “baby boomers”). Children born during this time period have had constant access to technology (computers, cell phone etc ).
In fact , another reason for calling them the Y Generation is that they are always asking 'why can't I have that?' or 'why can't I do that'?
They have never used a telephone that has a dial, never had a TV without a remote control and never known a world without mobile phones and the technology that comes with that.
They were brought up by parents who constantly told them they could be anything they wanted.
The problem has arisen that although they were told they could be anything they wanted they weren't told they had to start at the bottom of their chosen career ladder or even that they would have to work for what they wanted. In effect a generation has been created who feel a real sense of entitlement.
My question to all of you is - Is this our fault as mothers? Is this a load of 'tosh' -as my Dad would have said? Or was it an inevitable consequence of technology progressing?
