A big part of the problem is that too many parents just don't do the job anymore.
To raise a kid you have to pay attention and that's a full time job that you have to fit work and everything else around.
The kids just don't have the common sense inculcated by their parents and the attending discipline to understand that you probably shouldn't have had a baby, and that you have to think of it first now that you do have one.
Much of this you can lay at the feet of schools where the kids have no idea what America is, or what adults are supposed to do, but can talk for hours about the environment and LGBTQ-LSMFT*** issues.
Single parent homes don't help either.
It seems that every younger person I know that was raised in a two parent home with a strong dad and mom is doing very well.
Seems virtually every young person I know from a single parent, usually mom home is verging on being a bum and is going no where.
Too many young people have their noses buried in an iPhone and see nothing odd in posting their most intimate lives online for every one to see.
No kid seems to have a hobby, an active sport, and any interest in seeing the outdoors and what's going on around them.
It just seems the kids just never got the message about life and how to succeed and how not to fail.
Under the increasing influence of the hard Left in every possible aspect of life, the kids are being converted into the Left's beloved mindless dependent followers.
****Any of you over a certain age will know what LSMFT means.
