Snapshot of the Homeland generation today
(06-19-2019, 10:10 AM)Skabungus Wrote: As my Homelanders age into the PG-13 and R viewing range I suppose I'll get to see what other adults watch and gain some perspective on what the film industry sees and communicates to adults.  In any case, it isn't likely to be as dark as Rosemary's Baby, The Omen, Children of the Corn, etc.  Ahhh those were the days.  I was totally unsupervised and saw all of them at the theatre when I was but a boy.

This is also an emerging trend, perhaps newer than Xer parents might endorse.  I was totally feral as a child, but also knew that I could go to any door and ask for help in a pinch.  In fact, I did just that when I fell through the ice into a creek in mid-winter.  I wonder whether that may return.  Stay-at-home parents are not uncommon these days, because work-at-home makes it easy (for some at least).  The real question: will the parents loosen their grips and trust their kids to be responsible?
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.
