Well, our culture of media promotes Me-ism, to the zillionth degree! Look at all of the "reality" programming! People who watch this tripe (kids, AND adults) are witnessing that bad behavior is rewarded with cash! If a person can lie, cheat, steal, and win the contest, they walk away with a bucketload of cash.
Then, there's the "music" that's popular, today. There's no hope, no ambition (except to kill cops or rival drug dealers), too much sex, etc., etc. I see prepubescent girls running around in mini skirts and thoroughly inappropriate attire with a cell phone plastered to their heads, at the mall. In fact, I had to work at a local mall during Holiday Season a few years ago and I was gobsmacked to see parents dropping their little girls off at the mall, handing them a cell phone, and picking these kids up at 9PM on a school night! Now, these little girls were prostituting themselves - NOT for money, but for clothes, toys, earrings, perfume, etc. And, calling the mall security was like calling your local cable company to speak with a living human being!
Then, kids are taught by their school districts that they may call Social Services to report their parents if they feel that they're being abused - I know a woman who had her daughter taken away from her for a month because she put her 12 year old daughter on restriction for bad grades and trouble in school! There's no respect for authority, anymore, particularly parental authority. Then, there was another person who had the Child Protective people at her door because she "forced" her child to complete his homework! The kid actually told the worker that he felt that she was being abusive by insisting that he complete his assignments. My eldest once threatened to call Social Services and I told him that I would be happy to dial the number FOR him - he would have to go to someone's house that he had never met before, and I would get a much deserved vacation from his B.S.!!! He never made that threat, again, though there's more to his story than I care to type, here!
Kids are exposed to entirely too much information, today. They are certainly not equipped to process the majority of the information that they absorb. The best thing that we ever did was to get rid of cable over 2 years ago! Though my kids are out of my house, I don't have to be spoon-fed negative programming and it makes for a happier psyche, for me!
Good luck with your daughter! Give her some Farkitol and you can take some Damitol! <guffawing mightily>
