a. Moral breakdown, or moral degradation, is
a phenomenon in which a major

these are lack of simple manners when

c. Moral values and graciousness, in the
past, were more common in most
teenagers. Majority of the youth then
learnt respect, courtesy, consideration,
decency, propriety, honesty and
righteousness from a young age, and had
enough self-discipline to hold to these
values. Unlike in the past, where moral
values and self-discipline were the norm,
they are insufficient in today’s younger
generation. However, these moral values
and self-discipline are gradually losing
ground over the years, as most of the
younger generations are steadily
disregarding these ethics. (Saquib, 2017)

moral degradation.
a. Children in single-parent families, to be
sure, face obstacles to developing
important moral qualities. Ethical
development is rooted in emotional
development, and children in single-
parent families may suffer more
persistently from those feelings -- shame,
distrust, cynicism -- that commonly eat
away at children's capacities for caring,
responsibility, idealism, and other
important moral qualities. In the wake of a
divorce, for example, adolescents
frequently suffer sharp disillusionment --
a loss of idealized images of their parents
and of the ideals these parents represent.
After a divorce, large numbers of children

b. Although teenagers may not have the
same decision-making capacity as adults,
parental influences can affect the way that
a teen behaves and makes choices. In
particular, parental behavior plays an
important role in how teenagers make
decisions. For example, if a teenager sees
his parents acting impulsively or making
poor choices such as neglecting
household responsibilities or skipping
work, the teen might believe that he is Online: A Blog Post

d. Even though we have established the fact
that family environment and influence has a

development, this does not mean that all
