Do you think parents are losing control of there kids or do you think parents just cant be bothered pulling them up?
Just an example of what I mean. I was in the supermarket the other day and this kid was having a major hissy fit because his mum wouldnt but him a freddo frog. He was screaming, stamping his feet, kicking her and hitting her. Then he started pulling stuff off the shelves. He was just going feral. She quietly giggled and said dont please. He was not listening. Mind you this all went on for about 20mins. After all that she said he could have the choc frog. Then all of a sudden this feral kid turned into an angel. You would think butter wouldnt melt in his mouth. After they left the supermarket said over the speaker clean up in aisle 6. This is an every day thing kids going nuts, running around, speaking rude to not only there parents but anyone. You know what most of the time parents do nothing. They just continue to read there books, keep talking to there friends or sit there on there asses drinking there dam coffee.
For everyone around these kids it can be unbearable. FFS do something get a grip of your kids. Please.
Why do they let ther kids act this way? I would never let my kids behave like that.
At an early age my kids and there friends knew how to act in public. If my kids ever did be naughty when we were out it would be a smack on the butt and straight home and in there rooms. No if buts about it..
Have you seen kids act this way in public?
And Why do you think parents are letting them get away with this behaviour?
Do you think its just laziness or is it because they just dont really care thats why they just let them run a muck?
I was pretty s***ty when I didn't get my way but I never slapped my parents or tore up the store we were in.
My parents were much too old for the tough love thing so to take the stress off themselves they usually gave in.
I ended up growing up to be prodigal - The only fault I could lay on my parents however was having me too late in their life.
You can't explain this stuff to a child that age.
I used to think that scarecrow tactics were the more humane alternative to physically punishing children but studying myself I realized how that later leads to psychological issues.
Passive Aggressiveness seems the most risky and desperate of alternatives because the child could wind up murdering someone during the process.
I think parents should not only stop trying for children after their mid thirties but should also take their genes and emotional issues throughout their family into consideration as well.
