I have heard that you know there is a potential for a long future of enabling if the parent removes the crying newborn from the car seat and holds it on the way home from the hospital.  They can't stand to see the poor baby crying for that first car ride even though removing it from the seat puts it in far greater danger.  I am not sure what sorts of easy 'tells' there were before 1983 or so when car seats became so common and standard. 

I also agree there has been huge wussification and helicopter parenting where many young people are just not getting it.
