Hmmm, you’re smart Noelle … although I’m not convinced that passing responsibility onto someone else is the fault of kids from 80s and 90s exclusively … I’d say it’s more epidemic than that, in my opinion origins as far back as 50 or 60s … although narcissism has presumably existed throughout the ages, so I don’t think there’s really a source …
