Average American Kids vs Average European Kids - How Do They Compare?

    We’ll start today’s show with a bit of a disclaimer. We understand that all European kids from all 50 European countries and transnational nations can’t all be lumped into one. That’s not our objective today. What we will try to do is take a look at how kids from some European countries compare to American kids in certain respects. How are their lifestyles different, how is schooling different, what kinds of habits do they have, who seems to have a better standard of living, who gets arrested more, who drinks alcohol with abandon and is not yet out of their teenage years, who gets married young or has kids at a young age? Things like that, and more. So, without further ado, welcome to this episode of the Infographics Show, American Kids vs European Kids.

    Something that annoys me with these videos about Europe made by Americans is that they always use the EU flag to represent Europe. Europe is NOT EU!
    Still a good video overall.

    In Europe you start drinking at 14, most parents buy it for you because they’d rather you be safe and drink, that’s just the culture in Europe

    With achole In the English history children drank beer because it was the only thing to drink (apparently)🍺 my history teacher told me when we where learning about the battle of Hastings and Vikings by the was I’m English so if any English people find this a bit offensive (which would mean I’m offending myself) then I’m sorry but it is just boring old history

    "Binge drinking defined as drinking 60 grams or more of "PURE ALCOHOL" in the last 30 days."
    Where the hell are they getting "pure grain alcohol". It's banned in 18 states and in the states it's legal many liquor shops won't sell it for fear of being sued.

    I can attest to this, or at least the not-illegal parts of this.
    I happen to have a friend who is my age (born almost on the same day in the same year) who lives in the Netherlands. I live in America. So far:
    -He doesn’t seem stressed
    -He has several hours every day with which to pursue hobbies
    -He takes more classes
    -He knows far more than I do about subjects in fields both of us want to pursue
    -Although I am not super stressed, most of my friends are
    -Me and my friends have little to no time to pursue hobbies
    -Some people I know get quite literally two hours of sleep per night
    -In the end, with the subjects I’ve taken (and some are pretty advanced), I don’t think I can reasonably match my friend from the Netherlands.

    *Teen pregnancy in Bulgaria and Romania is because of gypsies* and muslims sometimes( DO NOT fight me on this one, my school has lots of muslims.) Muslim girls sometimes are married off around 15 and get pregnant sometimes even before that. But gypsies are a lot worse cause they stop them from school even earlier and get them pregnant right after they prob get their periods... Anyone that has been for a while in either country knows this.

    Doesn't point 2 and 3 contradict themselves? When all children are taught in the same classes (I assume it means smarter and dumber students in the same school/class) how can the gap betweenweakest and strongest kid be the smallest in the world? That doesn't make snese because humans are different.

    Uhm, also education is free in other countries, until university and at that point if you obtain good result, you don't pay that either. Only US puts their students in debt before they even start working, hey I guess gonna get them used to how their lives gonna be, I mean after all the whole country in in huge debt, that they will never be able to pay ( that's why you guys start wars around the globe to get resources)

    Interesting, but it's hard to compare a continent to the US as a whole. There are HUGE differences between Alabama and New Hampshire, for example, when it comes to everything. My point is there are more differences between states than between the US and Europe as a whole.

    America isn't more violent then Europe, thats False. However! The violence in the USA is much more deadly then what it is in Europe (Typically because weapons of different kinds are much more available in the US then Europe. This of course doesn't mean we don't have some shootings and stabbings in the EU). Netherlands has more breaking and enterings then the US.
