The war generation were certainly different, as in my grand parents, who were born during WW1. They were content with less, appreciated the small things in life and knew if they wanted something they had to graft for it, limited education & benefits and no NHS for half their lives. Having survived 2 wars, flu pandemics, the depression, brought kids up with rationing etc… They were different. But I don’t think the baby boomers are any tougher than millennials.

@gary Yet the generations before thought they were spoilt and enjoyed too much fun.

Every generation has looked down on the next.

Life changes, in many ways I think its gets harder. As a teacher seeing kids cope with the rise of social media and the like I think it was easier for kids back in the 90’s than now.
