people weren't afraid to give there kids a good smack when it was called for. now society is to much up everyone else's *** and people are afraid to discipline their kids in ways that are appropriate. sticking a child in front of a screen seems to be the way people cope with their kids now a days. distraction is key. therefore children are not taught right from wrong. only, gimme gimme or i wont shut up.

Best Answer

you do not have to hit them, that is not what i am saying. but put a kid in their place. when a 9 y/o calls his mom a *****, i think a good smack to the mouth is well deserved. when a toddler is reaching for an outlet or about to walk into the road, a smack on the but is a quick shock that makes them realize that what they are doing is wrong and that smack is a whole lot less painful then getting electrocuted or hit by a car. i personally use time outs. 1 minute for every year for their age. works well.

Most of todays kids will be bad citizens - courtesy, their upbringing, pseudo individualism and fraud research.<br />
<br />
when we were kids , if a kid failed to clear a test, <br />
he/she would take the test again and try till he/she clears it. <br />
<br />
Today, if a kid failed a test, then child psychologists and whole cra$p of theories<br />
and analyses , media and other stuff is crammed into the child's head which <br />
make the child useless.

Back then, couples were married most of the time. The husband went to work, while the wife stayed home and took care of the kids. (Would work the other way round as well)<br />
Nowadays both parents go to work to be able to afford a good life. They got no time for the kids.

Parents didn't have to be afraid to give their kids a good spanking when they were bad!

Best Answer

how I grew up ...<br />
self-discipline by fear (dad's rage, god's wrath) kept me 'in-line'<br />
respect of elders (parents, teachers, others in authority) was a 'given'<br />
bullying, fighting, fits of anger needed to be atoned for in the confessional<br />
parents were the hierarchy, and deserved to be treated as such<br />
<br />
'nowadays' the views seem to be ...<br />
do whatever, to who ever, and let the parents deal with the problems<br />
respect no one older than yourself ... they're all idiots<br />
bullying, fighting, fits of anger will make you newsworthy<br />
parents are a joke and make sure you take them for all they're worth

Best Answer

im quite sure the generation before yours felt the same way about ''u kids''

Best Answer

the biggest difference is that the rapid change in the state of the art overrules the old fashion do it the hard way rules.<br />

kids are way ahead in high tech stuff today, more than ever.<br />
<br />
it's like when we were kids our parents told us about the birds and the bees but we knew all that years before. today our kids teach us the birds and the bees and how to run our business too.<br />
<br />
i was learning computers without a mouse and my kid had a computer in his first grade class back then, he knew more computer science than what i did.<br />
<br />
