I think alot of these high tech toys sort of put kids in a bubble where they are encouraged to inflate their own self-esteem through their own deluded narcissism.
I don't think that's it at all, because this didn't happen just now. It began happening with the generation born in the early to mid 80s and is extremely pronounced in the generation that was born in the late 80s to early 90s.
