'Youth' has always been so regarded, going back at least as far as the 'invention' of the teenager.

Or perhaps even further than that:

"I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on the frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words. When I was a boy, we were taught to be discrete and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise and impatient of restraint."-- Attributed to Hesiod, Greek poet, approx 700 BC
