My question from https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2022/10/25/truthful-tuesday-25th-october/

Would you like to be a child growing up in today’s world?

No, I wouldn’t because as bad as growing up in the eighties was, at least my mistakes weren’t there for all to see. Most teenagers, some younger, will have a mobile phone. They aren’t allowed in schools, but then it doesn’t stop them being taken there. They are in constant conversations with their friends, but it is difficult to know who to trust.

The on-line dangers are real, and most parents do not understand what their child is on when they are. At least when I was growing up, the dangers were from outside, not inside the home.

Anyone can be anyone on social media, and the sites themselves have very little protection for their users. I still remember my daughter, twenty years ago, getting a very disturbing message on MSN. She had the common sense to tell me, but what if she hadn’t?

Even then, there were dangers.

Now even more so now.

Let alone being a child now, I wouldn’t want to be a parent.
