Why are kids these days so immoral?

Everyone's doing drugs, having sex with multiple people, sending nudes and I have never in my life come across such a profound lack of respect for women and girls like I have now. I'm so glad I grew up in a more innocent time when people had morals, values and standards. I have no idea how anyone can think of raising kids now. When did we as a society, lose control of children?

    I think the internet has a good role in it. It's being used as a babysitter, and on top of that kids access things like pornography and violent videos at the click of a button. Kids stop being innocent in elementary school now.

    Absence of discipline in the home. Parents set the standard so low. Too many people looking for an *** to kiss.

    Haven't kids always been like this? Look at movies in the 1930s ("Reefer Madness", "Boys Town" starring Mickey Rooney) to 1950s ("Rebel Without A Cause") - these films were about out-of-control teens taking risks with drugs, sex and alcohol. The difference between then and now is adults are too scared to punish them should the kids contact child protection services.

    But I do agree there is a general lack of respect towards females moreso these days that ever. A lot of it's to do with bad parenting and ignorance.

    Look at what's happening in schools. Seems that the kids are running the place instead of the teachers.

    No one taught them how to be ashamed. In the old days, our relatives & everyone in town would find out your business, so you had to keep your nose clean, or they’d all shake their heads at you and say, “For shame!” But today, families are all spread out, parents are gone at work all day, no one is likely to find out.

    Because it is more accepted, and sometimes even encouraged.

    Friend let me give you the answer. Here it is.But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power.

    This is taken from the Bible 2nd Timothy chapter 3! Notice that it says in the last days!

    Friend we're living in the last days! And what you're seeing is a direct Bible prophecy!

    It's not about "time"

    It's about what the people you look up to (parents, neighbours, popstars, sex-partners) do.

    "children will follow your example rather than your orders"
