What happened to our society?

On the recent incident about a 13 year old boy indecently assaulted a 5-year-old girl, it makes me wonder what happened to our society.
Many who knew about this are blaming the hospital for not having separate wards to separate boys from girls, but I think it is not solely the fault of the hospital. It has no doubt that the hospital has to bear some of the responsibilities on this, but school and parents should also bear a part of it.
Our School is where we are taught knowledge and about the different aspects in life, it has no excuse when something like this happened the school would have to bear the consequences for not teaching the child properly as most children spend most of their time in school every day.
It goes the same for parents. Being parents it is their responsibility to teach their children and assist them as they grow older. This should not be blamed on having no time or having any excuses, as it is their job as a parent to tell their child what they should or should not do.
If everyone could spare a little time each day to care for the people around them, this would be a better world and may these incident will come to a stop in the near future.
