In Re B.H. (Cal. Ct. App. - Jan. 16, 2016)

"The child was detained on January 10, 2015, after Mother was arrested for credit card fraud and child endangerment, and her home was found in a deplorable and unsafe condition with methamphetamine scales in the living room and kitchen. Father was incarcerated at the time and had a lengthy criminal history for serious and violent acts. A deputy reported that Father was a drug dealer, while the paternal grandmother added that he was a drug user. Mother admitted to having a drug problem and smoking methamphetamine for the last two years. She also admitted to having previously quit smoking crack cocaine mixed with marijuana in 2005."

Every generation thinks that the generation that came after it is in worse shape.  But cases like this one make we wonder whether the next generation isn't in fact in worse shape.

Or at least a segment of it.
