I mean, not that children should be treated like adults. But when we were kids we were expected to keep our toys picked up, we were expected to have decent manners, and we were expected to walk with our parents when we went out... Today it just seems like everyone has this "Oh, they're just kids" attitude. Seriously, it drives me up a wall... No one can win because then someone might lose... Everyone has to be invited so that no one feels unliked - even if they are the class bully... We cant send cupcakes to school for birthdays because some parents don't allow sweets... Then there's the ban peanut butter thing, I mean, what did kids with these allergies do 20 years ago? I have food allergies, had them as a kid, and we never banned food from my school because of it...
How does anyone expect kids to grow up without a super sense of entitlement when we literally change the rules for everyone just to make one happy?

I know how you feel. I did not raise my kids the way these parents are now day. They give their kids to many options.

I find it super annoying too. We don't treat our kids like that here at home so they will some concept of what the real world is like. I understand not wanting your kids to feel bad but I really thinks it's getting to crazy with all the restriction that have been put in place. We don't have Holiday parties at school, we have season parties so that we don't offend someone, well what if I'm offended? What if the majority if offended in order to keep the VERY few minority happy? How is that fair? We are butt spankers here too and I don't care if someone doesn't like it. I had my butt spanked when I was a child if I needed it. I wasn't beat by my parents. Today I have a husband, a home, 3 cars, 4 kids and a great business.....does that sound like I was deprived of a good like because some girl didn't want me at her birthday party? Oh my...I could go on and on but I should stop now.....lol I love the question though =)
