Why have suburban parents become more protective of their teens?


Back in the 2000s the jocks I knew played video games like this

Now it’s colorful Fortnite.

and the popular girls were obsessed with joining the cheerleading squad and watching teen shows like this

These older teens moved away and the new kids in my neighborhood seem far more prudish. One enjoys basketball and strangely hates pop music. He seems like a perfect “choir boy”. Parents are working class religious people. Another is a girl of Middle School age who wants to be a model but is bigoted against inner city “gangsters”. Her Dad is a construction manager who won’t let her watch anything above a G rating.

What has happened to society?
