LETTERS: Kids these days are too pampered

Nate McCullough’s column (“Upscale dorm room an oxymoron,” Aug. 9, 8A) about his experiences moving into his dorm at UGA had me laughing out loud to myself. Kids these days are so pampered, mine included.

Sure he had to “rough it” by today’s plush standards, but he had a blast doing it. This obsession over designer labels is a function of the mindless consumerism of our times.

Spending and living beyond one’s means are encouraged and enabled whereas frugality and resourcefulness are, unfortunately, viewed as quaintly anachronistic.

Blame their parents. It all starts with them.
