Top Ten Things Wrong With Kids Today

I am ashamed of kids now because they some the most annoying things ever

The Top Ten

1 Hipster kids

I'm 11 and be cool isn't my goal. All I care about is if it's fun/important not cool. It's okay if somebody doesn't think I'm as cool as somebody else.

Being "cool" is a social custom belief that everyone is jealous of only because they are valued too high.

They act like they are cooler than other kids just because they are different, but they are actually much more annoying.

Oooh, I listen to high pitched screaming! I am therefore cool so follow me on Keek.(a site nobody knows about.)

I Like to be a happy go lucky guy!

2 Making references to old shows or movies without knowing what they are referencing

Let me guess: The person who put this on here is a person who has an attitude like this: "You weren't alive then. So you're not allowed to enjoy and reference something." What even made you think that they don't know what they are referencing?

WHAT? Kids making references to old T.V. shows without having watched literally every single episode, and comic and whatever else there is to it? INREDEEMABLE!

Pickle Rick should be exterminated from the face of earth

Yep. If they've seen it, then fine, no problem.
If they don't know what it is... ARGH

3 Listening to old bands

I'm over 50 now and when I was younger I was listening to mid-sixties garage punk bands ( and I still do ). Meaning that when I was fifteen I listened to fifteen year old music. Many others of my generation did that also. My point is that this is NOT a wrong attitude of nowadays kids. It has always been. And like they say ; age doesn't count for good music.

NO! Listening to all modern music makes me want to kill myself. Classic rock is all about the HEART! And the SOUL! modern music doesn't have that! Its just people rapping horribly about drugs, girls, butts, and making it a style of disability! We can't do this! I don't accept bad taste! Were not gonna take it >:( No! We ain't gonna take it! Were got gonna take it anymore!

I hate these types of kids, they always whine about why music in the older generations were much better while they were in the current generation full of dumb music. STOP!

Dude, its new bands that are terrible *hack* drake *WHEEZE* Fetty Wap

90's alt bands are great. Modern Alt bands are great. Prince and A-Ha MUCH better than modern crap.

4 Play games too much

Ah boo hoo. I can play masterpieces like Garfield Kart all I want.

So do adults. On YouTube, there are more adult gamers than kids.

And only bad games... No racing, RPG, sports anymore.

Guys who play video games are unattractive

But then comes all of the girls who think Lets Players on YouTube are hot...

5 Staying up till midnight

So? As if this is important, and there is something wrong with this? School literally gives too much useless work nowadays. So that's to be expected.

Mostly because a lot of schools bombard adolescents with too much homework that they literally can't sleep at a reasonable time.

What's wrong with this? As long as you get a good nights sleep, I think its fine.

Who the hell cares?! The only time, this might be a issue is on school nights.

6 Always on Facebook or other social media

I know for a fact I can't handle a Facebook account (I'm 10). With all the thigs they do on there, and all the bad people... though I still get to watch Facebook posts with my dad (Don't DARE question it)

Most of the teens and high-school students I see walking on the road are using social media, They're EVERYWHERE!

Who said this? I mean, I don't care for social media, but over half of the people on it are adults, I assure you.

No one I know is on facebook apart from my parents and grandparents and my school...

7 Special Snowflake Syndrome

Are you putting all kids under this category? Cause I assure you, only little kids think this.

Do kids have snow in their genetics nowadays? Oh and Generation Z, Millennials.

If you don't know what it is, you definitely have it.

What the heck is that?

8 Acting slutty

Here's how to deal with this (without a beating of course.
1. Let them do it (yes it will be hard knowing your child's gonna be a parent. but it gets better.)
2. Wait 9 months for the baby (or get an abortion if you want to beat it faster)
3. Give the baby up for adoption (so that your child won't risk the baby's life slacking)
4. DO NOT, of any circumstance, let the baby near your child(or just get a restraining order

I had to vote this, and its sad this is a thing. People in my school act like this all the time. a lot of my classmates act too perverted, even some of the girls got twerking videos online. ;-; This should at least be in the top five.

I have never, ever seen a kid act like this. Plus, if they act like this, it's the parents fault for letting them act like that.

Well... I don't see any difference between girls of 17 and 10 years because they are...you know

9 Will go to food places and order coffee

Most kids (mostly teens) drink coffee to stay awake (Because the education system is garbage and they give you too much work that you can't get enough hours of sleep), not to act cool.

Nothing wrong with this. Let me guess, "Oh! Coffee is an adults drink! ' (1) Not true. And (2) Some of you think that they do it to look cool. That's not the case.

Coffee and most of the other stuff I find disgusting and/or completely pointless and I am still technically a kid.

So what? Kids get tons of homework since middle school! I didn't go to Starbucks to look cool I did it to do homework.

10 Backtalk parents or people of authority

I love how parents can berate their kids interests and call them names but the moment their kid DARES to criticize their parents argument it's "disrespectful".

Most of those people don't show them respect. Respect goes both ways. They don't respect those people because they don't respect them.

My neighbors are 7 and 10 years old and they don't respect their parents at all.

I think they should be allowed to backtalk as long as it's not insulting.

The Contenders

11 Dating at a very young age

People start dating when they're like ten nowadays! Honestly, this is adolescence, we're all trying to find ourselves, we shouldn't be trying to find someone else. Be a "me" before you're a "we".

I started dating in 2nd Grade. I think that was a BIT too early. But I didn't cry because I missed the morning cartoons. I cried because I slept too early and missed the NIGHT cartoons.

Kids these days cry about breaking up with their boyfriend or girlfriend. When I was their age I cried about missing the morning cartoons

I’m 13 and I don’t consider myself ready to be able to start dating, yet a few people my age, at least where I live, are already doing this.

12 Sexually active

If a kid is sexually active it's probably their parents/guardian's fault.

Kids these days are perverts, It's sad.

Woah... That is not true (mostly) dumbasses.

That sgould definitely had been 1.

13 They want to be right

I don't want to be wrong, what's wrong with that?

Yes yes I most almost totally agree!

Everyone wants to be right.

14 They cry to get whatever they want

There are so many spoiled kids nowadays that it seems kids shouldn't even get anything they want.

This is what little kids do.

Only little kids do that.

15 Thinks that they are going to grow up successful without an education

I want to be an orthopedic surgeon and I sure as hell know that I need to go through so much school... this isn't true and whoever put this here is trash. mostly every teenager knows they need to go to college if they want to survive in the world.

I could theoretically drop out and pursue art full-time. But I wont. Because I need an education to fall back on and also cause I want to go to college and double major...

It's definitely possible to become rich/successful without high school or college but it's better to just go through it.

Not true. In fact, where are you dopes getting all this false information that is this list?

16 Consuming inappropriate media

Yes. Kids these days play GTA, Call Of Duty, Fortnite and games that are or should be for 18+ age!... at 12 years! At 12, you can start playing The Legend Of Zelda! Why parents buy those games...

Some parents these days shouldn't be raising kids. They don't even care at this point. I hear about parents letting their 3 year old kids being able to watch stuff like south park (example) all the time. Maybe that's one of the reasons kids now are so messed up.

Kids aren’t mature enough to be watching shows like Family Guy and South Park because of the fact that kids may mimic the things that happen in those shows.

Jesus Christ. Please define "inappropriate." Now, it seems everything is inappropriate except rainbows and unicorns.

17 Brainwashed by the media

A lot but not all.

18 Always on their phones texting

Anyone, and everyone.

AKA the majority of Americans

19 Constantly playing M games

I'm 13, and play Skyrim and sometimes Fallout 4. And it hasn't affected me at all. I am actually very mature for my age. Plus, deal with children playing M games. Not like complaining about it on a list website would put a stop to it. In fact, most of these items on here I don't do. Some of them (not the bad or ridiculous ones) I do.

I agree with this one! It depends on the kid's maturity but most kids are super immature for their age. So in general I'll disapprove it

Ha ha. Very funny. nothing wrong with this. (Note: Mature does not mean adult.) In fact, violent games don't even affect a kid. That's false news.

Well, if you're mature enough, there's nothing wrong with doing this.

20 Bad taste in music

Music is a very subjective thing. People will like whatever music they want, not everyone has the same opinion on everything ya know?

Ask favourite music artist. Most of the answers are gonna be innapropriate ones.

Not all are like that. Just most of em.

21 Thinking they're cool because of shoes / phones

Kids are so spoiled into wanting to buy the latest phone because they’re so jealous since their friends already have one.

This has been a thing for a long time though.

No one except elementary/Pre-K think this.

Look at mah shoes.

22 Acting obnoxious at school but in public they're normal

It's school. Of course they will be obnoxious. Because school "teaches" filler. 50% of EVERYTHING you learn in school is just filler nowadays.

I'm 15 and don't act like this everyone else in my school does I want to swear at them for it

Now this should be at number 1.

Eh,I am usually normal.

23 They will never know how Pikachu and Charizard were jerks in the beginning of Pokemon.

90's kid alert! 90's kid alert! Listen visitor, not all kids of today are like that. Some of us grow--and have grown up--in well educated families. We are not the stupid little hipster, ghetto, vain, and uncaring people you make us out to be. I don't care where you come from (probably a broken home yourself, by the way you're acting), but some of us are actually good. Now if you excuse me I have to read my lateset book "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH" while you sit there and anonymously type bad things about people in your little close minded bubble of thoughts. Have a nice life Mr. Visitor.

Because not knowing something that happened in a time where they weren't born in when it comes to a fictional franchise means that there is something horribly wrong with them. /sarcasm

How is this relevant? What if they DO know, and like them still? Y'all are stupid.

24 Speak in slang words constantly

Since when? I try to use full grammatically correct sentences, even when texting.

As long as the recipient can understand, it’s not much of an issue.

25 Do drugs because they think it's cool

Same as people today saying things like: "I'm 0K, running away from police", "No problems, I'm at jail". They think everything that is wrong is cool... They have to play realistic games, not easy and EXTREMELY ARCADE games. Look at driving at Fortnite... No realism at all.
