Standards have dropped, we have the worst behaved teens, official survey, what more can be said.
There was an interesting article in the Times last week about that survey. One of the "results" that made the headlines was that 44% of teens "admit to having been involved in a fight in the previous year". The Times article pointed out that the actual question asked was whether the teen had pushed or hit someone in the last year, including siblings and family members
, even if no injury was caused. As the mother of 2 boys I'm staggered that the result wasn't far higher!
The article - which sadly is not on the Times website - also debunked many of the other findings of the survey because the questions were seriously flawed and biased.
Beware "official" surveys!
