Changes in American Families
Dilemma for some, Normal for most
Problems in Today's Generations
Around the same time society noticed the non-parents parenting, there was a large increase in teen pregnancy, some due to the parents and guardians of those children not caring for them, or pay attention to them as much as they could have. Though, some of the pregnancy happened through violence and the use of drugs, lots of it was willingly, and not under the influence of anything, as far as we know.
Violence and drugs are interrelated, a lot of the time, the two go hand-in-hand. There was a dramatic increase of both during the late 90's and early into the new millennium, but not all of it was due to us related issues, or gang problems, much was during the war's on terrorism, where loved ones left behind were either low on cash or need other help because of worry or other things, that those people got into things they should not, and that started to lead to other problems, and they became very desperate.
