You may THINK your child is well behaved but he is actually a brat!

 This is what I think about the majority of children that I come into contact with.  I dont understand why parents allow their children to: talk back, run around touching everything, argue with the parent, whine, throw temper tantrums, scream and cry to get their way, and just basically be rude little urchins.  I have five children that have been taught that you dont tlak back to an adult, you dont dare act up in public, you may ask for something once and I will either say yes or no but you may not whine, beg, or argue over my answer.  I dont care what type of discipline parents use but they need to be consistent.  I hate standing in line somewhere and listening to a parent/child argue about whether the kid is getting candy or not and then finally the parent will say " Well if you will be good the rest of the day you can have the candy" 

     WTH?  I dont bribe my children to behave I demand it...and lord help the child of mine that tells me no or dares to yell at me.  Please people wake up and realize children are not small adults they do not deserve the same treatment, respect, or privaledges adults do.  So why do you allow your child to misbehave?

I, personally, love my bratty children.

 I would honostly like to know why?  As parents it is our job to raise our children to be polite, well behaved, law abiding citizens.  Why  would you not do right by your child and teach them from a young age what is and isnt acceptable?  If you dont teach them then who will?

Because, even though her kids don't live up to your standards, she loves them anyway.

My children aren't perfect and I would never pretend that they are.

You should totally write a parenting book.

Well congrats on birthing a new race of robots. Children are meant to push the limits and to question, that is how they learn and grow. My children know to behave, but they aren't mindless minions that serve only my purpose. I like that my children are free enough to ask for something, and that occasionally they will whine because they are disappointed. I like that my children can express themselves, while at the same time respecting their parents and those around them.

There are extremes, and I think you are too extreme.

I think you know nothing about these people you are judging, and should just focus on your own kids.

Better yet, she should raise everyone's kids.  Clearly she can do a better job than anyone else.

I don't expect perfection out of my kids, I have yet to meet an adult who is perfect.  So yes, I forgive the occasional meltdowns, the slip of the tongue and the pretty pleases that sometimes come when I say no.  I also realize that my kids are pretty damn good kids, even though there are times I find myself thinking I'm raising Tarzan's kids.  They are respectful, sweet, caring, giving, loving, and appreciative...most of the time.  The day I'm perfect is the day I expect my kids to be perfect.

Quoting maressa76:

Ummmm...what exactly do you do to your kids??  My kids have temper tantrums, talk back and yadda yadda yadda...and I am very consistant with time outs, spanks and taking things away.  But guess what my kids are very stubborn.  Maybe your kids are just easy?

 I dont know I am very consistent make rules clear from the time they are able to walk. I have 5 kids and yes some are more stubborn than others but i dont bend so they eventually learn.  I use timeout,spanking,seperatio (their room with door closed)taking away priveledges whatever it takes to get the desired behavior.
