What a bizarre concept.
Way to those that MISSED my point entirely!
I spend time around *kids* ALOT, considering i have 10 nieces and nephews all under 15, and 2 more cousins that are under 21, and a brother that is 15!
I know that as i akid, if i did something hugly bad, i would get a swat on the butt, NEVER BEATEN.
We were taught there is a REAction to our Actions. If you did something wrong, you got grounded/something taken away.
Ex. I stayed out late, didnt call home, didnt ask, etc. When i did get home, i got a talkin to, and grounded. Phone time got taken away.
Some kids CANNOT be reached, and for those, im truly feel bad, because they are going to see life on the inside of a jail cell, not a loving family or friends.
What i was SAYING was alot of kids nowadays are being given everything under the sun. Games, cellphones, Ipods, tv's, cars.They dont get grounded, or told NO often enough because the parents want to appear "cool". They have a warped sense of right and wrong, and run over their parents!
Time out's dont work, and when the LAW takes away a parents right to disopline a child, that child will grow up with a warped sense of right and wrong, and think its OK to do things they see in video games,and thats why we have kids that carry guns, sell drugs and whever else they WANT to.
Im only 30, and back when i was in High School, no one even THOUGHT of carry a gun or weapon to school! Sure there were drugs, and some kids did them, but alot DIDNT. We never really LIKED our parents rules, but we still respected our parents enough to do as we were told.
If i EVER told my mom " Hell no!" or "F OFF" i would gotta a fast slap! Not like that now. Kids swear at their parents, and tell them "if you touch me, i'll call DCF!!"
Its INSANE! Nothing really shocks me anymore when it comes to kids/teens. Not weapons, not pregnancy, not drugs.
you want to see how screwed up these kids/adults are? just watch a court show like Judge Alex or Judy, or Maury Povach.
