Romeo and Juliet Discussion Question

Filed under: Discussion Question,Romeo and Juliet — hargraves @ 1:01 pm

Kids these days!  They think that love conquers all, that nothing matters except how they feel about each other.  They have no sense of responsibility to their families, no respect for tradition, no regard for those who are older and wiser.  They don’t know the problems they’re going to have that all the love in the world won’t solve for them.”

What do you think of this complaint?  Have you heard older people say these things about kids today?  How would a kid repond to this speaker?
