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.

This is one of problem of our society. And I think that Parents play the most important part to solve this matter. The way of Parents will reflect all

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.

Yes... :mrgreen: :? :mrgreen: Maybe my grammatical structure is false.

I did mean :

Many people think that being free means having no limit.
And they give this idea to others people (family for example).
And advertisement reinforce this idea.
And this idea is FALSE.

But you cannot force someone to good or bad things. There comes the trust. [trusting is taking risk]

While is was reading these posts I realised how lucky I am. My children aren't perfect; by any stretch of the imagination; but they have always been respectful.

Definately they have been taught this, because it starts with respecting yourself and your property.

At an early age you should have you children look after their space and their belongings. I know it sounds strange, but these are the first lessons of respect for young children.

Also when they start speaking you need to pull them into line (the word here is consistently). Not just sometimes; everytime they are out of line, remind them of the right way.

Another thing that helps with young children is to have their grandparents, aunts, uncles etc involved in their lives.

Just my opinion, but I know that my mother has so much respect from her (now) adult grandchildren, they think the world of her because she has always shown them the way.

8) 8) :D :D

Yup, an extended family is the way.

All depends on your definition of freedom :roll: There is several definitions of freedom and this "idea" is not fundamentally false...

If freedom is having no limit, it is an utopia.

i have much respect to my parents and i hope one day my own children will feel the same for me too. I have much respect for other people too, even those I don't know. it's just what I've been taught ever since I can remember. :-)

You can give love, but you can't wait for the same...

Children have always and everywhere disrespected their parents. The point is that now, a great ammount of children don't care about showing their disrespect.

I wish those children would soon feel sad as you feel about their behaviour, and so they could think about changing their behaviour.
You can help me with my English by telling me my mistakes in a private message. Thanks :)
