What did your generation have that kids need more of today?

Yeah I hear you.

Especially cause I am middleaged now, but felt I was more tough as a younger person at hearing BS or downright racism or the bullying in school to the point where people threw rocks at my head cause they knew I wanted to do something with my brain when I grew up etc.

Today I have lived a lot like people 10-15 yrs younger than me due to ... things that didnt go to plan ... and I feel more "hurt feeling" inside when I hear people who are 100% against what I have of attitudes/feelings, but unlike my colleagues and those younger, I don't react on everything.

But I feel the same suck in the stomach, harder than when I was younger. Glad I learnt then to ignore most of it.
