My youngest daughter came home with a project yesterday from school. She had to interview either a parent or grandparent, so she chose my mother. The interview was only three questions and they were: What was your school like? What did you do for fun as a child? How did you pop popcorn? (My daughter is only seven by the way). After listening to my mothers' answers, I realized there was a huge difference between just her generation and my generation. Do you think by the time our children grow up, there will be major life changes too? My mom went to school in a one room school with one teacher and 7 grades! They had no indoor washroom and no hot water either. My mother is only 55 so this is really not a long time. What do you think will change in 50 years?

Yes I believe with new technology coming out all the time that from each generation to the next there will always be big differences . That was actually a very neat project for them to do in the school to show them how over time everything changes and how each generation has things a little easier and a little harder in some ways .
