Seriously what do parents teach their kids these days

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I was in Walmart with ds earlier tonight to grab a few things. Ds was crying and just being... Not him self. I figured he'd had a long day at school and was tired. ( I have to wake him up at 6 to get the bus at 6:45 schools starts at 7:20 idk but the little ones start school over an hour earlier than the older kids who don't go to school like 8:40. Makes no sense. Lil ones need more sleep) anyway ds is crying I'm trying get him home as fast as possible. I see these two teenage boys. Probably around 15. I had seen them several times in the store and each time they would pass I'd hear them whispering to each other. Whatever I ignor and got to check out and here are these two boys again standing there behind a battery display pointing at ds who is 5 and very loudly making fun of him crying!! Saying things like ugh whaaaa look at the baby cry. I whip around cause this is bullshit ds is 5 years old these kids are like 15 maybe a little older They see me and shut up immediately . I ask them what the hell their problem is and if they think they cool for making fun of a 5 year old little boy. They take off running. The cashier said she would call a manager cause those boys are always in there and they do the same thing. They hide behind one of the displays and make fun of kids!! Wtf. Where are the parents and what have they taught them?? I'm sorry it's not normal to wander a store to look for small children to make fun of. I wanted to slap the hell out of them.

And no their parents may not know what their doing and they may not have raised this way but in today's world you never know.

That's my question. How are they going to keep a job when they can't even do what their parents tell them to do?? They are going to be in jail. They are hit someone when they are older and they will be in jail.


Quoting acrogodess:

It breaks my heart the way these kids behave. How are they going to get anywhere in life? How will they keep a job when they don't even respect their parents, or child care providers, or teachers?

I was a daycare teacher for years. I taught every age from birth to 12 years. I love the parents that think they kid does nothing wrong and tells us not to put them in timeout. It's those kids that are the worse. I worked in nj for years and didn't have a lot of problems with the children there. They were pretty good kids. I moved to another state and it was like walking into a war zone. I was bit, hit, punched in the face by a 9 year old. Broke the glasses right off my face. I was slapped and I was suppose to just take it. I was not to put these kids in time out and the parents would laugh when I would tell them these things. They thought it was funny. A 10 year old in my class td her dad she was punch him if he didn't stop talking. He shut right up and i stood there with my mouth open. I couldn't beleive the way the children act here. It's unreal. I quit after a year. That was more than I could handle.


Quoting acrogodess:

Nothing at all from what I've noticed the past year working with children and we aren't even allowed to put them in time out. We have to "re-direct" them to another activity so they can be disrespectful elsewhere... *sighs*


Most seem to expect school to teach them everything, from reading to writing, math and good behavior.

Everyone is afraid of cps. I tell my ds all the time you wanna call cps and tell them I beat you go ahead. You think it's so much better somewhere else?? It's not better you could get put with someone who really does beat you, they may not feed you, you may not have an actual bed, but if you think it's south better then you call.
It's one thing to spank your child it's another to beat them.

If I pulled the things the kids today pull my butt would be so red I wouldn't be able to sit

Their parents are afraid of spankings. 

when i was growing up, if i tried to pull this shit, my ass would get beat by my parents. and probably the person i was doing it too as well (small town, we all knew eachother) 

these days, you cant even yell at your kids with out getting CPS thrown at you.

Our oldest dd was easy. Even know at 5 she's easy. But ds has proven to be difficult. If I try to punish him at all the fits get worse. Especially at home. We do spank when necessary. With him that's a lot more than I care to. He behaves for other people. I'll try just leaving but I don't think he would care if we left. He didn't wanna be there in the first place. But it's worth trying. Right now I try to shop without him, or have a snack and small toy to keep him busy. He's really a handful right now.

When mine were that age and lost it, I left my cart and walked out. Even at that age they understand. I didn't care if anyone thought is was rude.mi wasn't going to tolerate children behaving like that. It didn't happen often, and certainly not after me walking out when they were very little. I started making them apologize when they were 3. Like I said, it has only happened a few times. Either my oldest will say something tom my younger two that stops it, or I say , do I need to find a manger? They quit instantly. Just be consistent. They may be tired, but that is no excuse for awful behavior. If they are that tired, you shouldn't be there to begin with. Tough I know, but it takes planning.

I don't believe that the same teens are always in a walmart making fun of kids, but okay. And even if it actually did happen to your kid, they shouldn't have been doing it.

Idk if they actually do it all the time or how often it happens I'm just telling you guys what the cashier said. I've never had to deal with something like this. Teens can be rude yes but it's usually to an adult. They aren't making fun of a 5 year old.
