a very modern problem

Back in my day we didn’t have any of these problems – no dyslexia, no ADHD, no anxiety disorders, no Asperger’s syndrome. None of these new, modern things.

Mind you, we did have that one slow kid who couldn’t read out loud in class. Then there was the boy who just wouldn’t concentrate in class, and the one who regularly freaked out, screamed at everyone and threw tables over. Oh, and that weird kid who had no real friends and wouldn’t look anyone in the eye.

But nobody with an actual medical label. That’s what’s new and modern.
