EXACTLY!


Quoting glorytojehovah:

Bad examples in the media, music industry, sports arena in their homes, our society has hit it's lowest of lows with the morals and values. Broken homes, parents who both work and the kids are left 


I am an Old Fashioned mom! I beleive in God, Guns and Freedom!

I beleive Children need to learn manners, self respect and Obediance! If my children don't tow the line.. I have the rod of correction to be applied to the seat of knowledge to bring about the change in attitude and behavior!

Parents. When I was growing up, I had very bad influences in the media (That show with the racist prick and his pushover wife) and it didn't affect me. What mattered is the fact that my parents actually RAISED me, rather than letting the Tv, videogames, etc. to it for them.

The parents. I was at an ob appointment a few weeks ago there were several parents there with kids and one kid, about 6 or so called another parent an idiot. The parent said 'wow strong words bud' the mother of the kid didnt even look up from her phone and said he learned it from daycare and for him to come sit and eat gummy worms..... um ok.

90% of the kids I work with are that way because they are allowed to. They won't pull that crap with me because I will not tolerate it. But they will with the parents or others because they allow it. Parents blaming media makes me laugh. It's an excuses their poor parenting.

Really, both, but the bottom line is the parents are responsible. Today's parents don't parent.

I swat my son on the diaper occasionally and he behaves in public now.

However, I'm an abusive bitch, lol

Children have no fear, because these days its 'wrong' to punish bad behavior. You're supposed to reason with them and speak gently and ask them how they feel. When I was a kid, I could conceivably get spanked by whoever caught me screwing up whether it was a teacher, a neighbor or a grandparent. Yeah, there were still rude kids, but the level of rudeness was way different then. Then, a rude kid would at least have some shame and knew it was wrong. Now, they don't care, if they even understand its wrong.

100% parents.

They are failing kids nowadays, big time.

Both. But mostly parents allowing it. They are allowing the bad media into their home too.
