Are we seeing more narcissism?
Years ago improving self esteem seemed to be the key to helping kids feel better about themselves. Instead, kids today are more self absorbed than ever, have no empathy for others, and criminals often think very highly of themselves and go off the charts in the "self esteem" range.
Don't we need to find a balance? Look at generation X and some of their horrible social skills. Is it because they don't care? Too much time on computers? Let's talk about this. Let me know what you think. Been around any brats lately? :)
