"The fact that teenagers are being freely sent to festivals where they're
surrounded by drugs cut with fent and getting stomped to death really

that forms their kids"
The parents are either deliberately negligent or actively pushing it on their kids because they hate them.
Children are a reflection of the parents, meaning they pierce the narcissistic delusion the parents surround themselves in, revealing the soul they hated so much they had to deny it completely. It's almost impossible to hide from yourself when you see it echoed outside yourself. The child's very existence constitutes narcissistic damage.
It's important to marry someone you love. If both halves of the kid come from someone you love, then you'll love the kid and they have a shot at growing up healthy.
