Family un-values

When did the concept of family become a tired cliché of phased-out tradition in need of redefining? And when did we abandon our parental duties to glorified babysitters with no real interest in our childrens' physical and emotional development outside of their weekly paychecks? We are bombarded by screaming advertisements dictating an acceptable standard of living requiring two or more incomes and measuring our success by the sum total of our net worth. The decline of civilization progresses as fast food replaces home-cooked meals and quality time is staring blankly at a flat screen television with a group of strangers living under the same roof.
