Really? Kids today are worse than kids were yesterday? Tell that to my grandparents. Seriously- I understand how Velcro sneakers have impacted our children’s shoe-tying skills, though they’ve also probably decreased by tenfold the two-year-old tantrum quotient. But the notion that kids who can figure out how to manipulate a mouse and work the DVR by age 3 are somehow deficient in life skills seems a little, um, crotchety. Your kid  can’t use a can-opener? Lock him in the bathroom with a can of olives for ten minutes. He’ll figure it out.
