Kids may be old, but their voices are also growing louder.
The age of kids in the media is rapidly approaching that of their parents, as children grow older, they are no longer as easily entertained by older-gen versions of themselves, as their parents.
As a result, some children are starting to think they’re old enough to be old themselves.
“The kids that I see now are really, really angry,” said David Dolan, a producer at The ABC’s Kids & Gays show, whose latest episode features the voices of young adults who think they are old enough.
“They feel like I’m not going to play them,” said Dolan.
“I think a lot of kids are feeling like that.”
Dr. Dan Hamermesh, director of the Children’s Health and Human Development Centre at University of Sydney’s Child Development Institute, says the trend is real.
“There are some kids who think, well, I’m older, I can’t play with them anymore,” he said.
“I just think we have to change the way we view the experience of aging and, you know, we need to change how we view that.””
Kids & Gages show is a program that is meant to challenge children to explore and discuss topics that they might not be able to talk about in a conventional way.”

Kids & Gages show is a program that is meant to challenge children to explore and discuss topics that they might not be able to talk about in a conventional way.
It’s a program where they come up with ways to play together, they have the opportunity to play with each other, and it’s also a way to talk to kids about the challenges they face, such as learning disabilities and autism.
The show has recently been seen by thousands of young people in the Australian capital and beyond, and Dr Hamerms says that he’s found that the children who have been challenged to think about their age in a different way, are happier.
“Kids are talking about it,” he told news.com.au.
“When they’re not talking about the topic they’re talking about, they’re getting emotional.”
He says that this type of conversation can help children who are struggling with learning disabilities.
“If we start with the topic of disability, the kids have a better chance of actually getting out of that mindset,” Dr Hederms said.
The ABC’s ‘Kids & Ghouls’ is also on ABC TV and is available to stream on YouTube and other online platforms.
