Society
A new video has surface online explaining “juvenoia” – the belief that during each generation children were better off in the previous one. The video was uploaded by the popular YouTube channel Vsauce, a brand created by YouTube personality Michael Stevens. In the video Steven explains Sociologist David Finkelhorn was the first to coin the term “juvenoia,” – meaning an “exaggerated fear” about what influences children nowadays. A fear according to Finkelhorn, exists in every generation. This can be seen in an article published by the Sunday Magazine in 1871 regarding the dying out of letter writing, “we fire off a multitude of rapid and short notes, instead of sitting down to have a good talk over a real sheet of paper.” Can we say the same for smart phones today? Stevens explains a series of examples through different generations all which can be seen on the website xkxd.com. Watch the video and decide for yourself. Is technology and other factors of our time negatively affecting kids these days?
