Stereotyping Modern Kids

13 Aug

Hello everyone! Ever heard of adults stereotyping kids?

Adults stereotype children as being good at technology and I agree with the stereotype a bit but it aggrevates me at the same time. One of my cousins was wondering why I couldn’t work an iPhone and was like ”I thought you younger ones are suppose to be good at technology”. After my cousin said that I was thinking ‘Well if I don’t have the money to buy those new products and technology I wouldn’t be good at it right?’

What are your thoughts on this imposed stereotype?

    Well, I experience another stereotype situation… where people think younger people cannot make wise decisions, knows very little, therefore not bothering to listen to us. When we speak up, we’re rude. When we don’t we’re uninformed. What is your take on that?

      Hi!
      The ‘Because I am an adult I know better than you’ is one stereotype that frustrates me a lot. I don’t think that its rude to state your opinion but finding the right time to say it sure is hard. Makes me question what is a wise decision and what isn’t.
      Thanks for dropping by!
