Today’s parents of teenagers may feel like their own teens years were not so long ago, but for most of them, those days are two or three decades in the past. How much do teenagers today differ from those of thirty years ago? After the 1960s generation and the baby boomers, is there still a generation gap?
Teens of the 1980s had sex, drugs and rock and roll just like today’s teens as well as their own set of iconic movies, musicians and video games. But what would they have made of cell phones, iPods and the Internet?
And do items like that really indicate a huge gap in what kids were like then and what they’re like now, or are they just different types of window dressing on experiences that are more similar than they might appear at first glance? Do their idols, education and aspirations really differ by much?
