I seem to remember my Victorian-era grandmother saying the same things about my mother, and I definitely remember my mother and father making similar remarks about my brother and me. I find myself saying the same things about young people today. To a great extent, I believe such opinions arise from the ever-present generation gap, and how different ideas, trends and attitudes change through the years. I definitely agree that the younger generation needs a few lessons in etiquette and proper social behavior, but then I was versed in this by my grandmother and her old-fashioned ideals. Many of today's parents did not have such a formal upbringing, and they have passed on their own behaviors to their children.
