Why many children nowadays don't respect their parents?

Postby delieght » Thu Apr 07, 2005 8:08 am

Parents had brought them up with great care and love, yet I still see some children disrespect their parents. Why is that so?
I sometimes cannot help feeling sad when I see them do this.

I guess they are not severe enough. And this is also reflected in the way they behave at school. Teachers are the ones who suffer the consequences! Teens are the worst.

Have their parents taught them what the respect is ?

Have their parents stopped them when they did something respectless or "distrusting" ("disconfidencing", :mrgreen: , which destroys the self-confidence of the other person) ?

Never injuring, never snobing.

The Mythe of Child-King ! :evil:

But there are many others entities which can influence the children : others contacts, camarads, advertising, false ideas, ...

We will never say enough that education is a very great factor.

(and then, self-education)

some children are very rebellious. in general, I never think there are bad children. children have diverse personalities and interests. if a kid has a strong personality, then he/she must have his/her indenpendent viewpoints for what he/she realize, even for parents. if these rebellious kids are educated well, they will mostly become something creative and intelligent.

yes, as you guys said, it is a matter of education.

Yes, rebellion is a need of transgressing limits.

But first children (or/and teenagers) have to know these limits. And parents can (must !) show them these limits (to let a field of action, but a limited field). But which limits, that is the question ? (too limited => not enough action if I don't break the limit ; too much freedom => not enough den points if I break too easily the limit) how to find an equilibrium ? a medium space ? it depends on each situation.

Whatever about personnality, encouraging communication (direct talking to) is necessary.

I agree with you that NEED OF TRANSGRESSING LIMIT in any situation. And what i want to say here is how can children realise LIMIT of things? Orienting children rightly of Parents is one of ways.

Badly many people think and communicate the false idea in order to which freedom means no limit.
