Probably because the spoiled little brats were not taught to take pride or responsibility in taking care of their surroundings such as making their beds, picking up their clothes or helping parents with chores around the home. When I was growing up, if I didn't perform these tasks, I received a boot in the butt. My parents loved me enough to teach me to be responsible. Many parents today cannot be bothered. They are too busy doing their own thing, while their children "occupy" and demand the easy life without working for it.
