did i just raise my boys right not to do the screaming, biting, kicking, calling names. or are some kids just brats?
I guess the times they have done things i took care of it right away, left the store or whatever. and i have never spanked my kids other then i swap on the butt.
My 16 yr old has told me the way some friends talk to thier parents and it floors me, I couldn't imagine my son calling me names the way others do.
Is it how you raise them or are some just brats?
I have no idea. I can say it would not be tolerated in my house. What I just got out of your question though (I could be wrong, just stating my opinion) is that you keep an open communication or why would your son talk to you about such a thing. Maybe open communication and discipline are key? Maybe some kids go through fazes and act out. I'm not actually sure so I'm grasping for answers because that is something that just floors me.

And I'll also say this. My parents wouldn't win any parent of the year awards but there is no way in hell I would have ever spoken to them like that period. I would have been picking my jaw up off of the floor. I back talked my grandma once. And once was all it took. She backhanded me. I never back talked her again.
