In less than a week I have had to explain the flaws in a PPD to children twice. On Easter my younger sister was going on about how as soon as she turns 18 her and her bf are gonna run off and get married, but wait a few years to have a wedding when they're older and our family will support it. After first explaining why getting married at 18 was a bad plan I had to explain how rude PPDs are.
Then last night I was watching 4 weddings and was bitching at the tv since one of the "brides" was having a PPD. FSS tried defending her since everyone deserves a wedding. I rolled my eyes, but ignored it since he was young. He went on a rant about how I wouldn't be saying that if his dad and I had to get married ASAP and I didn't get a real wedding.
I think if we want to eliminate the special snowflake mentality we need to start when they are little.
