You know discipline is illegal. This is the USA and in a few years they will make good news copy. You know they have an early casket or prison cell with their names on it. Good parenting provides the desired results.
Video games + Marijuana legalization are mellowing parents down.
Politics are ruining peoples lives and slowly will our world come to a collapse.
Thank ye cataclysm for cleansing this plagued earth!
Disciplining children is a politically incorrect concept these days. There was a thread here recently in which many "enlightened" individuals spewed their judgment of parents who discipline their kids. They are fools, all of them.
They are: undisciplined themselves, too lazy, don't care, too soft/nice, don't know how to discipline, or combination thereof.
Because what was once considered disciplining back in the day is now considered "abuse."
We actually had a class discussion about this in sociology and most of us agreed that what was once upon a time acceptable(belts, switch, shoes, hands) is child abuse and you'll get a lovely visit from the CPS
I don't know. My parents weren't strict with me, but they raised me to listen and mind my manners.
Then they had triplets 8 years after me. It might be the number of kids all at once or something, but somehow my sister got left out of the being raised polite idea. She's just unconfined energy all the time.
Because a lot of people think that their kid is so f-ing cute. They don't realize that they are the only ones who think that. I think also, a lot of it has to do with the fact that the parents themselves weren't disciplined too well. The whole discipline is now considered abuse thing may be true, but regardless I'm going to spank my kid if they need a spanking. I wouldn't want my kids acting like that. It ruins things for the good parent out there.
I really agree with the anonymous answer, "They are: undisciplined themselves, too lazy, don't care, too soft/nice, don't know how to discipline, or combination thereof."
I assume (I don't really know or claim to know anyone's business so this is a general statement) there is a lot of inconsistency with discipline along with being more of a fun friend instead of an assertive parent because they don't want to deal with the tantrums and what not.
Though this could also apply if they are too strict, either way I think they just don't really know what they are doing and the child(ren)'s behavior is what comes from it. More often than not leading to out of control and/or manipulative behavior from the children.
There are probably some few that haven't done anything wrong and the children are just out of control. Its hard to say and generalize so many people you know, we don't know what's going on in their lives or how they were brought up. Maybe they are doing a good job compared to what they got.
I don't think you going to see great parenting skills at chickfila...
