I just experienced how our youth shines in selfishness and disrespect. What has happened to common courtesy?

The other day I was walking out front of my daughter’s school to pick her up and encountered 5 girls – probably about 14 years old, and past students of our school. These girls took up the entire sidewalk with a bike and their backpack carrying selves. As they watched me approach, none moved aside and they challenged me to walk off the sidewalk into the mud. Not this Mama! Needless to say, I did not walk in the mud!

What is with these kids and what are they learning at home?
