This in today from the Guardian :

The well-being of millions of children across Britain is being damaged by adults’ aggressive pursuit of personal success, a three-year inquiry by the Children’s Society concluded today.

The society—a charity allied to the Church of England—blamed the problems of young people on “a belief among adults that the prime duty of the individual is to make the most of their own life, rather than contribute to the good of others”.

It said this “excessive individualism” was the cause of high rates of family break-up, unhealthy competition in schools, unprincipled advertising, and acceptance of income inequality that left millions of children living in poverty.
