I totally agree as I've been teaching 31 years. I think the pressure of testing, the fact that very few children have unstructured play time, all the video games and electronics they are now using from infancy on, and the hurried and/or stressed schedules of families as well as how many children now are from families of divorced parents so going back and forth between households or never really knew one parent(and I know there are well adjusted happy kids from these situations, but there are also many anxious kids and it is a big change from when I was a kid)....all those things I believe contribute to varying degrees. I am in upper elem. and I see a huge difference!!
