I think it's fairly obvious that the anecdotal data point of one person and their circle of friends, is not a proper sampling needed to draw general conclusions.
No assuption there, it shows in your pathetic attempts at posting in this thread.

Please do tell us more about this "minority" and exactly who considers them to be such, other than yourself LOL
Parents suing video game companies, because they bought their child a Mature rated game, and are shocked it contains violence and sexuality.
Or where they go on the internet. Or what movies they go see. Or when Huckleberry Fin gets banned from a school's curriculum.
The very existence of the Parents Television Council is evidence that parents would rather not be responsible for the TV their children watch. Instead of limiting the time their children watch TV to when they can be there to monitor it, they'd rather have the "nanny" watch their kids for them.
More and more there are stories all over the country of parents that would rather have society raise their children for them. Because they're too busy. Or overwhelmed. Or tired. Or they "just don't know what to do".
But god forbid we have any corporal punishment! Or sports. Or valedictorians. Because it's just not fair to the other kids, regardless of the effort they put into it.
It's no wonder people overwhelmingly expect everything to be handed to them. It's no wonder they feel entitled. It's no wonder they're quick to sue. It's no wonder they want to take the easy way out. It's no wonder they'd rather mooch off their parents the rest of their lives. THEY WERE RAISED THAT WAY.
