Teens left home without manners

I have always taught my children to use their manners from a very early age. Today, my children are both in their teens and we are often told that they are well mannered.

On Saturday my daughter who is almost seventeen had a small party at our home. One of her friends stayed for dinner before the party. After the party was over none of her friends thanked us for opening our home so they could have the party and only one of the teens thanked my daughter for hosting it. The girl that stayed for dinner did not even thank us for having her. Some kids now-a-days have no manners at all.

Is it just children or have you noticed than manners are seldom used amongst adults too?
