I’m still a kid but one thing I know is different from my parents generation is cars. I mean all of my friends are still in high school and pretty much all of them have cars. I know when my parents were kids they didn’t have cars. I don’t have one yet but I know I will get one. Also my friends and I can all get in contact much easier. With cellphones and the internet if I need to get in contact with one of my friends it takes almost no time. As for is it easier I think each generation has it’s own problems and they are all hard to grow up in.
