Why are there so many bratty children?

Yeah, not all kids are angels. But why do some parents find it funny when there kids hit animals or are mean when it comes to playing with kids and they are Fine with it.

Some people just shouldn't be parents

  • I think they just don't know what to do, so they just don't do anything at all and think that everything will turn out okay. While the rest of us bust our butts teaching right from wrong.

  • This generation of parents read and research too much. They are afraid to discipline because it isn't "politically" correct. The "experts" say it's not OK to spank. I say do whatever works for a child individually. Some respond to time-out; some respond to spanking. I raised 4 kids and spanking did not reach them that it's OK to hit anybody else. And, furthermore, Bethsunshine is correct; parents nowadays would rather be their kids' friend than the parent. Hence, it's the kids who make the rules and run the house when it should be the other way around.

  • I think there always has been parents who behave in this manor. Its always made me upset & still does. I usually have a bad habit of saying something though.

  • Because their parents were like that with them, and they think its ok...

  • Because there are parents who don't PARENT... They give their precious angels a free pass... They feel entitled in a restaurant to let their children behave like monsters. Because the parents themselves no NOTHING about personal responsibility, respect, discpline, or being a parent...
