Same with my family. It did my head in, until I lived in really dirt poor developing countries and encountered children that cant go to school because they have to work from age 5 with their parents. And these were the lucky ones, because they had a somewhat stable family who was looking after them. In such countries you'll find hordes of orphaned children scavenging garbage heaps at night.I would never hear the end of it, how easy my life compared to what his generation went through.
I now agree with my family. Our generation (in developed countries) has got it extreeeemly easy, and we are just whining.
