I choose my words carefully. I could have said: are parents smarter now?
When I was in my teens, I couldn't believe how ignorant my parents were, but as I grew older, they seem to make sense.

Parents are MORE stupid than 70 years ago.
No matter what year parents will always be mostly clueless about their children
