15 Illustrations That Accurately Depict The Problems Of Modern Childhood.

Toys Shouldn't Be This Stressful

It's quite apparent that today's children revolve their lives around technology. Kids spend their time with their eyes glued to screens for several hours a day. What could that mean for them? We put together 15 comics that honestly tell the truth about what a kid's life is like.

Toys Shouldn't Be This Stressful

It's obvious that the life of a child has dramatically changed from what it used to be. Kids used to spend their time spinning tops and playing with silly Slinkys. Now, children are consumed by expensive electronics. Kids are now stressing their parents out by asking for a new pair of headphones because they broke them, as opposed to asking for a new inexpensive Slinky. And that just scratches the surface when it comes to expensive toys.

For children over the age of four, playing with their toys in a sandbox is just a distant memory. The only things children want now are video games. Children used to spend their time exploring their outside environment, they're learning completely different life skills now, thanks to video games. So what's the difference between learning outside and learning from a screen? You might be surprised by the answer!

Kids used to play outside together. Playing games like hide-and-go-seek, getting upset when it was time for them to go inside. Kids used to be very social. They learned how to have relationships without even understanding what they were doing it. Kids today want more time inside sitting on the couch, or the computer chair, learning different kinds of skills. Today's adults are also completely different than they used to be, as well.

It used to be commonly known that when a person got older, they would become more formal. That was how it had to be if they ever planned to get a decent job, but society is changing. The need to be formal is disappearing, and in its place is a generation of people, including grandparents with beards, tattoos, and piercings. Everything seems to be changing, especially how the teenagers look now.

Girls used to wear overalls as teenagers. Today, teenage girls might still wear overalls, but they cover up a lot less skin now. It would appear that cute was overrun by sexy, and no girl wants to miss out on that. So does this make girls harder to raise than before? Possibly, but as you'll shortly see, the teenage years aren't nearly the craziest change that has occurred when it comes to raising kids.
