Dear god yes. I work in an electronics store, and I have parents constantly 'dropping' their kids off to sit in front of the TVs that are running new release movies and the like. The parents think we are some sort of baby sitting service. They just leave their kids to roll around on the dirty floor, and watch TV. When I was a kid, TV was not a babysitter... the baby sitter was, as in the person who came over to watch my sister and me while my 'rents were out.
But not these days, some parents have the gall to think that children are just another person and do all the same things in front of them that they would with other people. Like watch R rated movies, play M rated video games, swear, smoke and drink. Then they accuse their children of swearing and tell them its a bad thing. Children learn by example.
I'll have kids come in and say to me "I need a game." Not a question, no please, no thank you...just flat demanding they want me to get them a game out of a locked case. Its horrible, add to that their parents apparently don't even know the meaning of the word please and we are setting ourselves up for a future that is dim witted and ignorant.
