 Some kids have not been raised to respect others but that has always been the case.

Less respect and more rude, absolutely. I hear things come out of kids mouths that would never be heard or rare 30 or 40 years ago.

some.

but can we blame them?  How many parents say call me by my first name?  how many women dont expect and act in a way that allows a man to be a man?  how many parents are cheating on their spouses?  some of them may be more rude but they are not growing up in a world that demands and sets the examples of propriety.

In some respects, but honestly just look at a lot of adults today, they're not much better.

Overall though, I think most teens are still respectful young adults.

i agree.  i think because of the media and the sensationalism today we hear more (and louder) about the bad ones than we do the good ones.

Some.   I think young people are not as 'filtered' as they once were.   Adults are more rude today than they used to be.

I am one of those parents that prefer to be called by their first name.   I don't consider it rude if I allow it.   I get the same respect whether they call me Kimberly or Mrs.___.

Im just pointing out that there are many different social norms that were demanded years ago that have gone by the way side.  If we keep expecting less from the teens, they will give us less.

Well, I agree that's true.    I think a lot of that has to do with the lack of trust in society in general.  We are less secure that other adults have our children's best interest at heart.
