Parenting in the last 25 has changed a lot. Parents have grown to be more worried about their own children. In cities like San Francisco and New York, it can get to be very scary. For example, some kids have been kidnapped or hurt while walking home from school. As more of these things happen to kids, the parents get more scared about letting their kids walk alone or do something by themselves. Even at an older age like 16 or 17, teenagers have early curfews like 8 or 9.
Parenting hasn't just changed, the children have. Kids can now be easily distracted by anything on their phones or iPads. Checking Instagram or watching Youtube is common for kids to do this generation. It can distract kids from anything going on outside of their screens. For example, if they are walking around and they're playing Pokemon Go, they are oblivious to their surroundings.
