I think a lot of kids are not brought up to appreciate the time, energy, and sacrifice that goes into the things around them. Either theyre in a house where the government provides and there is no time, energy, or sacrifice in the things around them or they are from a household where minimal time, energy, or sacrifice is put into them to show them.I made some "errors' as a teenager myself due to no parental guidance but I won't blame it necessarily on that, I was stoopid and mischievous and grew out of it quickly within a few years. But the kids nowadays have no concept or qualms about doing harm top someone or being destructive and they stand face to face with an adult and insult them. Yes, the government should have remained out of child-rearing because they make the worst parents!
When you don't see people's sweat in the things they own, there is no reason to have any respect for it. It takes a lot of effort and conscious decision making to ride the line between the kids having it better than we did growing up and not losing the drive doing without instilled in me and their mom. I have no idea if we are doing a good job or not, but we are working at it. I guess we will know for sure in the next 10-20 years then they reach adulthood and take the helm on their path.
