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.
I wasn't alive seventy years ago. 乂ᴼ ₒ ᴼ乂
Parents are MORE stupid than 70 years ago.
No matter what year parents will always be mostly clueless about their children
70 years ago, no one tried to name their kid Kal El.
