Do you think discipline can help kids to be a better person in the future?? do you even think kids today value what they have compare to most???Do they even know what respect means???? Who is to blame???
Right im not here to disrespect or tell people how they should raise they kids today but i think there is a lot more we can do for kids in today’s generation in terms of respecting others and learning how to value life itself.
I was watching a Tv series ” worlds strictest parents” and to be honest i found that all the parents we’re not strict at all?? in fact most of the parents just teaches their children that life is not easy and the should be grateful for the little things in life and work hard if they want to get somewhere. im sure people would agree on that. However the Brit kids seem to have none of that, the don’t respect their parents, older people, themselves and they don’t seem to appreciate that even though they might not be having ”fun” in the they still have more advantage then most kids in other parts of the worlds if they wanted to become something in life.
who’s to blame???
Well a number of people would, the parents?? Sure they probably tired but more can be done. We want the best for our kids and we want them to have freedom but not end up turning into animals, even animals have more respect for their own. This why i believe making rules, discipline and even smacking should be in forced from a young age. When i was growing up in my house i had freedom but if i swore at my father SMACK.,it wasn’t hard but he was right, i was a child and need to learn to respect my elders especially if its someone taking care of me. I had chorus to do around the house, again this thought me as i grew up them you have to do things for yourself and not rely on others to do them for you all that time. It called the value and principles of life, which most teens today don’t have. Instead they do what they like, which 99% of the things the do it stupid anyways and they end up becoming losers.
Some time ago on the bus there was a kid around 11, he go on the bus tapped his card it didn’t work so the bus driver told him to tap again, the kid go angry and told him to ” fuck off” just like that for no reason the driver wasn’t rude or anything but i thought to myself ” if my kid talked like that to me i would smack that kid hard till the tongue comes off”
Second people who are to blame is politicians. There are not enough social activities for kids at all, unless you have money and can afford places. Nearly all the youth clubs are being shut down, sold to private to make flats. No wonder you see kids hanging on the streets, they have nowhere to go!!! They lack social skills, independence, meeting new people, being active so they do stupid things because what else is there to do. Hence why kids won’t respect others since they have been neglected by but the adults.
How to solve this??
It takes 2 to tango here really. Parents need to be able to take a lead in the house, im not saying they have to beat them blue but discipline in a way that will make them understand the value of what they have and the politicians should do more to make sure these kids have things to do and have somewhere to go after school otherwise they will end up being animals on the streets.
