Is it just me, or is there a new fad for teen novels in which neglectful parents are used to show how mature the lead character is? It goes so far as to show the children being responsible for taking care of their parents and implying that the parents are so neglectful they can't even take care of their own well-being.

I have the idea for the perfect image for this page, the scene in the Dark Knight Returns where Carries parents ask "didnt we use to have a kid"
