"Children get holier than thou"

In this article in USA Today, the trend of children who follow religions with more fervor than their parents is discussed. The article deals with the gamut of various faith communities and talks about vocations as well as a commitment to outward forms of garb for some that are more traditional than the ones their parents wear.

I'd seen this before growning in the last few years - I put it down to the "Ayn Rand" syndrome - when teens/young adults want absolutes and read Ayn Rand - I guess the orthadox side of religion offers the same firm foundation of absolutes (which another few decades tends to make a bit more flexible).
