Well, two things.

One, I tend to notice brats more quickly than behaved children.

Two, I hardly think a collection of 70 some odd replies is a good representation of all parents everywhere.

Oh and a third.

Regardless of parenting children are small people and fall prey to moods as well. Where we as adults may have better control over our reactions, they tend to go to an extreme when tested.

I'll never understand expecting children to have better control over their emotions than we as adults do.

I have replyed to that post.  I don't see anything wrong with this type of parenting, but just like any type of parenting, I don't think it can be used on its own.

Maybe things weren't so fast paced then? Depends on what time you're talking about. I know I hardly ever went to the store with my mother when I was small. I wasn't really put in positions that I was not emotionally able to handle.

Now you go to the store at midnight and see someone there with kids. Maybe they had no other choice and had to go then and had to take the kids. But it still stands that it isn't good for the kids.

When I did go to the store, I had *all* of my mother. She wasn't on a call, she was present and including me.

Regardless of that, there have always been bratty children, but our overall sense of entitlement has grown so maybe that is reflected in our kids.

Who told you that?

I'm 51 and distinctly remember a boy in school who threw temper tantrums, once famously getting mad at the teacher because she changed a grade on his paper and he chased her with a garbage can.  He was 9 at the time.

When I was first married (I am married thirty years now) I was in a Perkins for breakfast with my husband and the child at the next table was so ill-behaved that he was hitting me, and put his head in a salad bowl and flipped it up, showering everyone with salad and dressing.

There have always been spoiled brats.  There have always been good kids.  There have always been oblivious parents and there have always been conscientious parents.
