I think it starts with pretending it doesn't matter at all who is taking care of them when they're young... and handing them off to interchangeable adult-units for their entire development.

What do you think causes it?

I think you have a really good point. I do believe it's who's raising them. However, how many are actually handed off, and if that number is significant, why? Why are they handed off? If they are, what has become of society where we think this is acceptable?  I'm just so sick of seeing this behavior in general, but specifically with today's youth. Some like to claim it isn't on the rise, it's just more public. I think that is BS. Part of the reason I'm no longer interested in teaching again is because of the way youth behaves today, but more so because of the people who would rather dismiss this behavior and make excuses, than fix it. They are the problem that keeps progressing this line of behavior and actions. Why do we spend more time trying to justify said behavior and "understand it" than punishing it and not making it acceptable period? It blows my mind.

The vast majority of kids now are in daycare even from early infancy, very often with staff that changes jobs as often as new kids arrive, to go on to schools where teachers come and go and there's a different one every year, and teens who babysit, and 'program' leaders who work for a while, and coaches who change year after year, or different teams or lessons or tutors...

In families where, as often as not, the siblings and parents change every few years... to add to the moving every couple of years, even a couple of miles which changes all the familiar people around them.

I know the behaviour isn't on the rise, but where it happens it is often SO much better armed than it once was... the level of anger is SO much higher, and the kids affected are no longer only from the lowest stratas of society. 'Good' families have enraged, violent, out-of-control children and they very often have no idea why, because (to their minds) their kids are living a 'very normal' life --even if it's nothing at all like their own childhoods and worlds apart from their parents'.

Punishment doesn't work --at all. It never has.

 Financial reasons, most people have there kids in daycare at a young age because either two incomes are needed in a family or there is only one parent in the home.

in 1940-50's one parent worked because you could make a living without a college degree much easire than you can today.

I think it is the I wanna be friends with my kid, they don't get discipline or learn boundaries, then when they are put in an environment where rules are in place and there is punishments stuff like this happens. There also has to be be some underlying situation that has not been addressed

 Well I think the fact that he's obviously being raised by his grandmothers says something about what went wrong here. Where are his parents? What happend there?
