(Leading geneticist claims that human intelligence is declining over time)

Pretty cool. I know that I'm smarter than my kids, so this makes sense to me.

derech eretz to your elders
and i hope your kids will eventually know more than you.
once a zaide who wanted to be smarter then his kids only let them learn chumash-noe his kids only siddir etc.
the smart man lets his kids learn MORE than him to grow up..
"they" saw we come from monkeys- so we smarter "we" know the opposite is true

You seem to say two opposite things...

you state that the older generation is smarter, yet you tell a story of a zaide (why not a father?) who needed to stunt his kids learning in order to be smarter.

Not trying to pick a fight, I was just having trouble understanding what you were trying to say.

On the plane our children ask tatty are you OK. Their children say dad I need this. We respect our elders because they are closer to matan Torah.  They respect their children who are further from apes

+1  Every religion has respectful kids and not. I guess its more the hope that the basis of Judiasm and the Torah promote good children, those that respect our elders.

It's all how you raise 'em.

Of course kids are chutzpadik--they are further from har sinai!
