Kids get away with too much nowadays and are too wrapped up in the internet cell phone electronics etc. They rely on these devices to communicate and find friends/boy/girlfriends etc. We didn't have that when we all grew up so we had to actually interact with each other and with our families. I think it also goes for some parents as well, they are all to wrapped up in their electronics to spend quality family time together and some day they will realize that and regret it.
It was actually just on the news where they were asking what age parents would let their children have a cell phone, one mother said 6! Whaaaaaa?????? Are you kidding me, what 6 year old needs a cell phone. One father said not til they are old enough to have a job and pay for it them self. He actually has some common sense.
