absolutely parents have lost their responsibilities over their children because if you look at teenagers nowadays you find that they are not being well bred.
parents no longer encourage their children
they no longer give children some space

How much responsibility parents have over their children depends highly on the environment the children have grown up in, the parents' values and lifestyle. Some parents might give their children more freedom to explore and learn on their own which another parent might view as inappropriate. However, that doesn't mean they are less responsible, no, it can actually makes them more responsible as the children will have to make choices more independently. What you classify as responsible might not be the same as another parents view on responsibility.

Encouragement also comes in many different shapes. For example, I've seen many parents whom have decided to become less strict and more trusting towards their children. Those children felt encouraged to speak up more often when they had problems. Those same children also felt encouraged to be more dependent on their parents.

We live in a generation where children have easy access to the Internet. Many things, both good and bad, can be learned within a few minutes. Many parents understands this too, which is why they don't give their children a lot of space. The Internet is full of dangerous and harmful things that forces the parents to teach their children how to surf on the Internet safely. Yes, children should have space, but too much can be harmful too. Its really just a matter of balance and communication.

At the same time some parents do give their children too much freedom, which can lead to them losing their right to be responsible parents. However, that doesn't make all teenagers not well bred either. Many teenagers complete high school, go on to college and finds a way to get to where they want to be. At least where I live, doing well in school and not causing trouble at home, or basically anywhere, matters a lot to the majority of the students living here. Our society has throughout these years made it very clear that being focused and goal-oriented will bring you far in life. Many politicians, including Barack Obama has pushed this fact on many of his speeches which reaches out to the majority of us. So no, I don't believe that teenagers in general are not being well bred, in fact its quite the opposite. We tend to focus more on the people that have done wrong things in life, than the positive sides of society. We have TV-shows like "Teen Parents" and etc which all portrays numerous teenagers that have made poor choices. This is how the media outlets gain views and make money, because people find negative "news" more entertaining and exciting than positive and happy "news". That's why we should be aware and think critically about what we receive through for example the media.
