Commentary on the Gospel of
“The children of today are just too soft, they have bad manners, contempt for authority, disrespect for their elders, they talk too much and work too little. Rather than help out around the house, they give everybody orders. They have not even the courtesy to stand up when their elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, monopolize the conversation in front of guests, have miserable table manners, a slouchy posture and they tyrannize their teachers.” This text is a proof that human nature does not change all that much down the ages: neither in children nor in parents. It was written by Plato about 500 years before Christ!
