I disagree that American kids are helpless compared to kids abroad, at least if you compare them to kids at the same income/socio-economic level. In Latin America, for example, any middle class (and many lower middle class) family has someone helping them around the house. I don't know an upper class Latin American who could be bothered to do the dishes or wash their own laundry - the "muchacha" always does that. So, sure, in many countries there are many 12 year olds who work in markets, babysit their siblings full time, and do all the housework - but they aren't comparable to a typical middle class American kid.

For one year I lived in a first-floor apartment next to a dumpster. The smell wasn't bad - what was bad was the unnerving presence of homeless men at all hours going through the dumpster. I could usually hear them coming because they rolled up with grocery shopping carts. There were constantly men - many likely mentally ill - outside my window. It made me uncomfortable.
