Emotional self-control is frankly something I saw a frightful lack of when I first came to the States. Long before smartphones. I wouldn't be surprised if what you were seeing was just a result of you getting older, as opposed to something categorical changing in the nation's children. Self-control has never really been adequately rewarded here.

I’m an American and I totally agree, but I couldn’t even see it until I was nearly 40 with my own kids.
