It's actually been proven that children of parents who don't let them argue at all (don't talk back to me!) are much more likely to succumb to peer pressure and abuse alcohol and drugs.

For reasons which should be ******* obvious but apparently arent to a lot of parents.

*I want you not to be a little **** and have respect for others, but I also want you to be able to stand up for yourself if needed.

We all have our places. Children need to learn this way. Even if it doesnt seem fair.

My parents always used to say to me "You're not allowed to do that" "You can't do that"
I always used to ask why and argue back

"Because I said so" fantastic answer mam. Wasn't teaching me anything.

All these *********** in the comments who think that children should be allowed to talk back probably because they're pissed at their parents.
I'm barely allowed to talk back unless it's with absolute reasoning. As a kid I just kept my head down and accepted it because, y'know, ******* do what your parents tell you you unappreciative dickweed. Now i've thought about it more in-depth recently and I believe that children do not get the right to talk back to their parents unless their parents do not provide sufficiently, without reason (so just being an abusive **** to your kid), or that they can provide for themselves.

TL;DR - Your parents feed you and clothe you, and as such get the right to treat you like they're better than you, because they are. I don't want my ******* kid talking back to me like an unappreciative prick, not that they don't have an opinion, that's different.

There are several types of parenting styles.
Authoritarian- Parents are strict and expect children to obey without question. Children do not have any say. This isnt a really good parenting style because children tend to act out outside the home and tend to be less independent.

Authoritative(democratic)- Parents will set boundaries. Children are allowed to express their opinion more. This works the best because children tend to be more independent and are self confident.

Permissive(basically the opposite of authoritarian) - few rules. parents are more of a friend than a parent. children tend to lack self discipline.

Uninvolved Parenting- kinda self explanatory. Children tend to perform poorly in nearly every area of life.

Funny thing about content like this is that the people who talk smack about classical parenting taking away a child's self-confidence and behavioral freedom usually tend to regret it later in life, if not their upbringing their circumstances.

The point of proper parenting is to get your children to NOT follow through with damaging behaviors, and to embrace positive behaviors something you can't do with pansy ass parenting, sorry to say.

Your parents are the guardians of your well being, not your ******* friend, you want to feel good about yourself get a therapist.

There is no such thing as "classical parenting". Plenty of parents today still use corporal punishment and plenty of parents decades ago adamantly refused to.

Every child is different and has different needs. Being harsh to naturally obedient children will **** them up. So shut your dumb trap and stop pretending being a smug asshole makes you a realist.

The mistake parents make isn't in having a lack of control over their kids, it's in being unwilling to prove that control in an effective way. If your parenting style is ineffective, change it, Don't just make it more extreme, and especially don't just assume that your authority is "obvious" and "absolute." Testing authority to see where it lies, and in what form is just human nature. Being able to determine what you can and can't get away with, as well as being able to recognize where the true influence over a system lies are beneficial in that it gives us the most control over the situation ourselves.

If you're looking to establish authority over your kid, prove it to them. Show them you are in charge, and why. And most importantly, never think it's justified to punish them for questioning it in the first place, You are in that position because you have the influence and authority that put you there, it's not the other way around where the position gives you the authority.

>All this edge

Yeah this comic is worded like **** . A good parent wants a child to be respectful, not a pathetic piece of **** . It's not that hard. When your parents tell you to do something, don't whine because they could do it just as easily as you. Do it because they're raising you and have taken care of your whining ass since day one.

I think you missed the point bud

It's just talking about the hypocrisy of a bad parenting style, that is telling the kid they should be strong and stand up for themselves but then giving them orders and expecting them to just do what you say for no other reason than because they want you to.

Just an FYI to anyone who's planning to make a comment about whether a child should be able to talk back to their parents or not, just take note that not everyone has had the same parents as you, and things like unfit parents exist.

On paper, this looks like a valid point. In reality, you can see the results of kids whose parents do not make them appreciate authority - which is, in essence, what this cartoon is getting at. Kids have to understand that their parents, and certain other adults, are an authority and are to be obeyed. Kids that aren't taught this are, quite frankly, little ***** with behavioral issues who spend more time being dealt with in a disciplinary fashion in school than they do actually learning anything - because they're disruptive and disrespectful.

Toddlers don't have the capacity to understand varying levels of "in charge." So, you teach them that Mommy and Daddy are in charge, that Grandma and Grandpa are in charge, that the babysitter is in charge. By this, they learn that whatever adult is taking care of them at the time is in charge. That adult is to be obeyed. End of story. This keeps the toddler from opening the front door and running out in to the street - in theory.

As your child ages, they are able to comprehend a more complex system. Varying levels of "in charge" and authority are understood, and - because you've taught them a foundation of respecting said authority - they can act within the appropriate guidelines.

When they grow into teenagers, they begin to challenge authority, and it is the parent's job to not only reinforce the need to respect authority, but to be the kind of adult that is worthy of respect.

This gradual shift, if done right, raises a child who understands their place, understands when it's appropriate to challenge and when it isn't, who stands up for themselves, and who knows how to work within the system - going through the right channels to enact change.

The most important thing to remember as a parent, is that you don't exist to be your child's friend, you exist to be their parent - and that's rarely the same thing.

i just want my kid to be smart... if it means listening at one point or if it means taking charge.... just don't be retarded.

thats because the best people are children that act like adults and eventually adults that have the innocence of children

or basically someone who acts the same their entire life

its a very useful quality
