In the UK, a commercial will be coming out on November 24, stating kids are like animals. In their commercial they are saying people think kids are horrible and are a nuisance. They took a survey and 54% of the adults say kids are starting to act like animals in the UK.
They asked if people agreed or disagreed with the statements. Only 49% disagreed and others said that kids who get into trouble needed professional help. 43% said that something needed to be done to protect adults from the kids.
There were only 2021 people that were part of the survey. Half of the adults said that kids are getting to be a danger to others. YouGov was responsible for the interviews in this project. Everything in the commercial was based on the survey and that tells the attitude of the people towards kids.
The commercial shows "vermin" or kids being hunted by adults. It seems very frightening to watch. Some quotes about kids from the people in the survey were "ruthless","cruel", and "they wonder in packs". The people may be trying to tell us over the years kids have been getting more and more misbehaved. There may be many reasons for people saying so. For example, parents and adults have been working more and have not been having the time to spend with their kids. So there must be a negative point of view from the people of the survey in UK.
What about the rest of the world?
Are the majority of adults convinced that kids are becoming worse over time?
