Kids these days!

birthday-1835443_1920 (1)Two of the young guests at my daughter’s 13th birthday party  said things I’d never expected.

Kid # 1: “Please pass me the broccoli.” (yes, we bought a veggie tray, along with the junkfood, we are ‘those’ parents)

Kid # 2: “I hate chocolate cake!”

Eh? Say Whaaattt??!!  What’s with kids these days?

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

  1. LOL! As a kid, I never cared for beef, but I loved my veggies. My parents never had to ask me to finish them because I always did. I still won’t touch a steak, but I’ll devour broccoli.
    Those are smart kids 😉

  2. It is amazing. I had a tea party for our family today to celebrate my oldest son, Greg’s birthday, which is tomorrow, and mine, which was yesterday. I made a hummingbird cake which has pineapple in it and my niece wouldn’t touch it.

  3. I have a nephew who won’t drink pop. I think kids just have different taste buds than the rest of us. I remember being super-picky as a child, but as an adult, I love just about everything (except peas–yucky!).
