Has anyone else noticed how the children of each generation decline in discipline and respect? No, I don’t have children yet, but I do see how children behave. This will not be a “How to raise your children right!” post. I can teach you about cats. And dogs. But not kids. This is merely from observations. On that note, let’s get on with it.
I see how some children talk to their parents, and am just appalled. I know if I talked to my mom in that way even now, I would get smacked. No shame in my game, my mom is small and demands respect. Totally cool. However, most kids don’t seem to give respect. A friend told me about how her step daughter constantly uses bad language in front of her. I see children cuss out their parents, or perfect strangers, all the time.
How is this viewed as okay? Kid’s seem like they had so much respect during the earlier 1900s and it just deteriorated with each passing decade. I am honestly slightly nervous about bringing a child into this world. Not because I’m afraid they will be kidnapped or hurt, but because I’m nervous about what they will learn from other kids! I don’t want my child to learn that it is okay to disrespect any adult!
I realize not every child is like this, so before you don the torches and pitch forks to chase me out of town, realize that. I am only saying that I am seeing it more and more because it seems like parents are more and more afraid to discipline their children. I don’t understand why that it. Kinda sad, though.
What do you think about how children act toward each other and the adults in their lives?
