Irresponsibility. When I was a kid, we had to get up early to help our parents with housework, chores, farm work. Now, some parents might call that child abuse.
Actually, I have a journal post about this. I think it explains it all: To All The Kids Who Survived

my DH is 12 years older than me, and even with just that 12 year gap, there are huge differences in the way things were during our teenage years. When i was in 6th grade, kids were selling weed in middle school. DH was still playing with GI Joe's when he was in 6th grade...LOL! I think kids grow up a lot faster these days. I also think that among wealthier people, kids are waaay more spoiled & babied until adult hood. I had so many wealthy friends that were so pissed when their parents cut them off at 25. I was cut off at 14...lol. But, i think there are a lot of differences in today's children. They are raised with more technology. I think kids fall to further extremes than they used to, i guess that is what i am trying to say here. This could just be my observation.

They are more likely to live with their parents. I'm 54. When I was a teen you moved out of your parents home when you graduated HS to go to college, get married, or you got a job and a house or apartment. I moved out when I was 18 and went to college never to move back. My mother got married at 18 and never moved back.
