Kids these days. I don't mean for this to sound preachy, though it most likely comes off that way. I just wanted to state my own personal opinion on this matter

I don't mean for this to sound preachy, though it most likely comes off that way. I just wanted to state my own personal opinion on this matter. Any and all comments are welcome with your own opinions, everyone's entitled to that.

TL;DR Children may be acting horribly but think about who raised them.

Tags: kids | These | days
Please, hear me out
Alot of people complain about kids these
days. It' s not hard to see why with how they
behave most of the time. It' s generally
accepted that most children are spoiled brats,
have no work ethic, and believe the world
owes them everything, while they do nothing.
Children are cursing their mothers and
fathers, over trivial things, calling them names,
insulting them at every chance. There have
been cases where a child was given a gift,
such as a new car, but because it wasn' t the
color they wanted, they insulted their parents
with profanity.
is very easy to complain about children
with all of these things happening. However, I
would like to point something out. Who raised
these children?
Nobody thinks about who raised these kids,
they just damn them without a thought. We, as
a people have grown lazy in many ways, and
one such is that we have neglected our
children. We either ignore them, or give them
too much. There is no right way to raise
children, because they' re all different people,
but there is a wrong way to raise them.
I just believe that if our children are the
future, then we should be willing to put the
effort in teaching them more than just
babysitting them until they' re 18, and then
wondering where we went wrong. This is only
my personal opinion. I' m sorry it' s not funny,
but I felt the need to post this somewhere.
Red thumbs, green thumbs, completely
ignore this and skip, it' s . I accept anything
that comes from this.

well one can always point fingers at the government for blockading real parenting

its one thing to stop parents from abusing their kids, its another to entirely stop all corporal punishment and think talking to uppity kids will actually make them stop being little *****
once upon a time, parents used to be allowed to give kinds a smack on the butt and teach them that doing bad things get punished

nowadays you cant even talk harsh to your kid or they'll cry to someone else and youll end up with child welfare on your doorstep to take your kids away

Yeah, it's ridiculous that you can't punish your child anymore. Then again, back when corporal punishment was allowed, my nephew got it too much. There is a limit. A couple pops, that won't leave a mark, is perfectly fine to let them know what they did is wrong. But going to far is still going to far.

I remember one time, I watched as my nephew was picked up, by the neck, and slammed into the wall as punishment. What did he do? Overwrite a saved game.

well thats kinda it...instread of taking time to educate people what they can or cant do....government just slaps everyone with "this is banned,...that is banned' etc

back when i was little and mesed up, it was several smacks on the butt or hands with a belt...and i learned "dont do that thing" and here i am, grown up, disciplined, hard working, making a nice pile of money

you see these modern kids taught nothing, punishments...theyre the ones either on welfare all their lives or even homeless when their families get tired of their **** and throw them out

Exactly. Honestly, I've never been punished, then again I was always one of those quiet kids that never did anything that needed a good smack. I did go through a spot where I was spoiled, and I was generally allowed to eat anything, but I wish I hadn't been raised like that.

As an adult it has been harder to adjust than it should be for my age, but due to the lax nature of how I was raised I wasn't able to handle it. I have to go through the process of maturing, in a short span, by myself, because of how I was raised.

I'm not complaining though, I don't really regret my life at all. My life's just fine now. I just want kids to be taught better than I was so they don't have to fight so hard later in life.

well its also the problem that not only government telling parents not to parent their kids, but also many parents being caught up in the whole career focus or just general self-interest to the point they ignore their kids while they do their own things then wonder why the kids dont listen

in order to raise kids properly you have to 'get yyour hands dirty' and actually set an example by spending time with them and teaching them right from wrong.....not this **** of expecting kids to auto know then yell at them when they mess up

Right, which is what I meant when I said that we're not giving them enough. We either give them so much it spoils them rotten, or we end up ignoring them completely because we're so focused on work or other personal interests.

Of course it's not always done on purpose, and the reason they focus so hard on work is because they want to give their kids everything they can, but end up being blind to the fact that they spent so much time working, they don't even know their own kids.

well sometimes the two mix
there are parents who think they can just replace attention with possessions and ignore the kids as long as theyre distracted by the toys and stuff

and theres the problem parents dont get....this whole "give their kids everything they didnt have when they were young".....well theres go to be a limit.....its like a man who grew up starving then making his kids fat ******* so they dont have to grow up without a full stomach...its overdoing it

There's just so many problems with raising a child. And of course the most important thing nowadays, people are having kids too young. They're not mature enough themselves, but believe they can do everything right, or they just weren't careful enough and are now stuck with raising a child.

I myself do want kids eventually, but I want to make damn sure that I'm able to give them everything they need, not just everything they want. I want to be able to raise my kids and teach them how to be human instead of just babysitting them. I want to learn everything about my childrens interests, help them study for school and give them the space they need to figure things out on their own when they need to.

yeah there is that problem with media and society over hyping sexuality in younger people so they think theyre 'mature' enough to have sex / kids as soon as they hit the legal minimum age to do so...and some not even legal age

and proper parenting does include getting your kids some nice things..just only occasionally so they grow up to appreciate they cant have everything and apprectiate what they DO have

Basically there's a balance to everything. Tipping the scale in any direction too far means harming your kids whether you mean to or not. Parenting isn't for everyone, yet just about everyone becomes a parent.

When according to you is a good and normal age to start having kids and where are you from? Just plain intrest in the conversation... I'm 18 myself so i feel like i don't really have a wide perspective but i rarely hear about young parents here where i'm from.

Well, physical age doesn't matter too much as long as you're old enough and able to take care of yourself. There are those that are in their 30's, yet act like they're still kids, unable to maintain a steady job. Me personally, I'd say if you're of legal age, have a home of your own, have a decent enough job to support a child, and have enough time to spend with your kids and willing to stick with them for the rest of your life then it's a good time to have kids.

When you have children, they need to be the center of attention until they're able to take care of themselves, but even then, they're your kids. You need to always be there for them as long as you can. I'd say live life a little first. 30's might be a decent time to start seriously thinking of kids because you'll have lived your life for a while, but everyone's different so whatever age feels right, and you have the time and money to spend, then you should go for it.

Hitting your kids is a lazy way to get them to behave.

I can understand were you're coming from but I totally disagree, as a child who was disciplined by smacking the only thing I gained from it was resentment of my parents

I love my parents, but they were lazy ***** with raising me. 'Reasonable chastisement' is legal here in the UK, and once the permission is there, thats it. Why take the time to try anything else when the easiest route is there? Who cares if its damaging? Parents work hard, they come home tired and in the moment they don't think about their actions, I get it.

But if you hit a dog, you go to prison. You can't hit someone without proving it was in self defense. Yet that tiny person who trusts you unconditionally and who you are 30x bigger then? **** em' !

I'm sorry but I can tell straight away that both of you have never had a child, you're just observers in argument that is not your own.

Go have a child and wait for that 'moment' when you have to 'hit' them, and watch the trust in that small face shatter.

If you do it right then you should only have to do it once. I trust my parents implicitly, and was whipped only twice as a child. Both times I fully deserved it, and learned my lesson...a lesson which I did not learn through other methods I might add. And you can hit your dog...same as you can hit your long as you don't ABUSE your dog/child

You didn't just get resentment from it. I guarantee it. Everything you are right now is because of the way you were raised. If they disciplined you with a smack on the ass, then that is an integral part of why you are the way you are today. Saying you only got resentment from it is short sighted and stupid.

well how would you suggest raising kids because its been proven in alot of western countries that talking to kids doesnt work when they have media and other kids teaching them to rebel no matter what parents say

if the world was sweden, maybe verbal discipline would work, but as countries are today, it doesnt....
at best it vaguely works but also comes with its own drawbacks like emotional issues, sending kids to their room promotes a feeling of parents cutting the kid off emotionally

my flatmates raise their kid with verbal warnings and the result is, he cries over literally everything...right down to if a toy slips out opf his hands he bawls his eyes out because he dropped it

my father hit me as a kid and i never really respected him because of it.
i would ignore anything he had to say, id only listen to my mother, and i havent called him "dad" in years. i refer to him as "him" or "my father" even if he is in the same room as me. ive completely disassociated myself from him.

beating your kids is basically the same as hitting a computer with a hammer and expecting the blue screen to go away. you arent fixing any problems, you are just ******* it up in a different way.

seriously...beating your kids is a bad thing, giving them a smack on the butt as a small warning helps teach "do something bad, you get hurt"
eventually you learn what you did was bad and either not do it again or learn to not get caught....

having the familes where kids can go run to mommy for safety and make dad look like the ba guy cause what happened to you...
parents need to be consistant and both support the doesnt need to hit but she shouldnt coddle the kids and add to making dad look bad

I agree with this though I really had to say something that was so easy to read for me I gave you a thumb based off your color choice. I've gotten in trouble for yelling at my kid when he ran infront of a car by a group of women walking by. I had to talk to a CPS agent for a few months after that who would come talk to my wife and I and my son in private to make sure he wasn't being abused. It is so ******* dumnb

I have a hard time with bright colors myself, so I tried going for something that would be easy to read, and easy on the eyes. It's a shame when you can't even yell at your child, even out of just a reaction, without having someone call the 'authorities' on you. It's great that people want to help, but not so great when they butt in when they know absolutely nothing about the situation and cause harm to innocent people.
