Here's a good question:  Who had it tougher....people who grew up without all the modern technology we're used to today, or people who did?

On one hand, kids today have every TV show or movie they could ever want at their fingertips.  They can easily communicate with their friends at all hours and they can research their school papers without using a card catalog, microfilm, OR microfiche.

But on the other hand, they're also dealing with cyberbullying and online predators, they're missing out on learning basic life skills, and they may be developing spikes in the backs of their heads from staring down at their phones.

So who had it tougher?  According to a new survey....even with all the pitfalls of modern technology, older generations STILL had it harder.

58% of people....including the majority of people from every generation....say it was harder to grow up without modern technology than with it.
