British adults intolerant of young
A new survey in the UK shows that half of British adults believe that British children behave like 'animals.' The survey is part of a growing body of evidence that the current generation of young people in Britain is estranged from the population at large.
Half the population believes children are dangerous and behave like animals, a survey for Barnardo's has revealed.
The results show an "unjustified and disturbing intolerance of children in the UK", said the children's charity, which questioned 2,021 adults.
Almost half said children are increasingly dangerous to each other and to adults, while 53% believe they are beginning to behave like animals.
