And, along with what Ellis said, the deeper problem as I see it isn't that parents aren't regulating what their kids do, it's that most of them aren't even capable of doing so in a positive way. I think if there is ideally a more important role for a parent to play than the 'libertarian' role, provided they are semi-intelligent people with good sensibilities, but most parents today are nothing more than giant-sized children.
