I disagree with this. The world is changing and I do think there are a lot more direspectful kids, but there are tons of respectful kids. I believe the definition of respect has changed, but its not gone, its just in a new form. And there are the really bad kids, but you can't tell me there werent bad kids in all the other generations too. The world has changed and I believe the definition of a good child and respect has shifted aswell, not better or worse, just changed.
