To me, ‘selfies’ represent an extreme form of self obsession. Too many parents, for whatever reason, have made their children the center of their universe. It’s all about the kids…And the kids have run with this… Their sense of selfness and entitlement has taken over their little minds, and modern technology is playing a major roll in providing an attractive avenue through which selfness is cultivated and reinforced.
I feel that this story, though deemed inaccurate, speaks of a corrosive reality which is penetrating our youth. A reality which should be exposed for what it is… Even at the cost of hurting a few teenager’s feelings…Might actually be good for them.
