It's the word of the moment .
The generation that mustn't be offended or upset or else they'll throw a hissy fit and jostle someone suspected of voting Tory or UKIP.

This is the generation who weren't allowed out to play outside for fear there might be a kiddy fiddler lurking nearby who have now become young adults .

When I was little we played on building sites and derelict houses and learned about life's hard Knox .

Some of us came home with broken bones even .

We bumped into bigger lads from the other side of town who would give us a good hiding if we didnt run fast enuff .

We learned life was sometimes unfair .

Compare that with a generation who just stayed at home cosseted from life's dangers and just played video games and got brought pizzas and hamburgers while doing so by their parents .

It's that sheltered generation who are snowflakes and they want /expect the world to adapt to them

And here I thought only Americans were that paranoid. Guess it's more universal than I thought.

I used to walk to school too. And if it snowed the schools were still open.

They actually have "play dates" now, where parents set up a time for their kid to play with another "approved" kid.

Very sad.

Just running around at random with the neighborhood gang of kids seems to have become a thing of the past. I'd feel deprived if I was as sheltered and cosseted as some of the younger generation has been.

We used to run wild and get up to all sorts of shit. Rock fights, BB gun fights, fishing expeditions on bikes miles away from home, daytime campouts with hotdogs filched from the kitchen and cooked over illicit trashwood campfires, scavenging the local dump, exploring crumbling houses and barns on abandoned farmsteads, etc. What fun.

Of course, there were downsides, like getting dogbit and being made to eat gravel by the 16 year old bully who lived up the road.

Overall, though, I would never trade any of that for a sheltered indoor childhood.

I...I... I'm so traumatised by your comments that I DEMAND the immediate creation of a forum safe space where no one is allowed to say anything unpleasant.

Nah. Just kidding. I was born in the 60s so remember measles epidemics, the three day week, playing cricket in the park (without being covered in armour) until you couldn't see the ball, strikes...

I'd really hate to be a kid these days - wouldn't you?

I too am from a time when you'd make yourself a couple of wonky sandwiches, say "bye mum" and go out on your bike. We'd go miles, tracking the course of a brook or just mucking about. As long as you were home by tea time, no one worried about you.

Yep! We did get into fights but you learned from those too! I only lost one tooth.

By age 12, my pals and I were going around London and surrounding countryside on Red or Green Rover tickets (All day bus tickets for those abroad) - getting to know where everything was and finding your way home again. Never expected my dad to drive me anywhere - he was busy at work.

But the shock I find is that today's kids do somehow manage to become self-reliant. It happens suddenly when they get to about 16/17. Must be the power of the internet or something because they do get there eventually.

On the other hand I find they have no DIY skills whatsoever and could never mend a bike or build a go-kart. My nephews can't even put up a shelf - no idea what a rawl plug is.

The young woman I used to live next door to got her dad round to fix a puncture on her car for her .
Nothing wrong with that as such I suppose .
A young lady isn't going to change a wheel when help is a phone call away .

My shock came when her 20 something boyfriend turned out to be in the house with her .
The useless twat that he was .

I would feel like my manlyhood was being threatened in a situation like that .
I wouldn't be happy she overlooked me and called her dad in the first place .

I am old enough to remember when snowflake was an insult hurled at Eddie Booth by his black neighbour as well as white honky which I never really got in sitcom of the 70's Love Thy Neighbour, so I am surprised to see it used in this context nowadays. Who first coined it?
