Society, no? Falls on the parents. People need put blame where it belongs.

No, our society as a whole doesn't. I don't think parents want this to happen, and don't teach it, but I do think some parents allow their children to become this way because , whether it's through lack of knowledge, or lack of time, they don't teach their children to became caring, strong individual who have concern for other people. I believe part of this is because children don't see their parents modeling these bahaviors. They are often isolated from other family through distance and don't have a lot of good role models. They spend most of their time in "me" activities. On the computer, playing games on DS, alone listening to ipod, and not enough time truly interacting with others. That being said, there are also parents who a doing a great job of raising kids that they are emotionally close to, and who respect adults and will be an asset to society.
