What is wrong with these kids?
So I'm super confused by people and parents these days. What happened to the days of children being seen and not heard? Why was that do wrong? Seemed like we had a country that wasn't bankrupt, people had jobs, and people were more accountable for their actions. As a person and step-parent I am totally repulsed by the way people raise their children these days. Example: At my sister in-law's house her 8 and 6 year old are allowed to jump on her pottery barn sofa, eat what ever and when ever they want, act like animals and in general have no respect for anyone or anything. I bring SD6 over to play and I say, "Hey SD do we jump on sofas?" Sister in-law says, "Oh it's ok, kids being kids. Over here its ok, she is just expressing herself." WTF! So I said, "No SD, we don't jump on people's things, at our house or anywhere so get down." The look on sister in-law's face was like I had killed her puppy or something.
I have 18 year olds who apply for jobs with no work experience, no work ethic, no manors and no enthusiasum for anything except TV and their Cell phone. They don't have cars and don't care that they still live at home. When was the last time you saw a pre-teen on a bike. I lived on my bike, I had a job, I had manors and If I misbehaved at someone else's house... omg TROUBLE! Broken families are the norm and I think it's the guilt or something.
I think as a parent, broken or not, TEACH your kid how to be. TEACH them! All these child worshippers are making worthless people in the world. SD6 has a worthless mother, well at least she will have a choice, and we will show her how to behave and take care of her things and be nice to other people.
When these people have single-parent homes do they want to be friends? Or have their kids like them? Is this the reason for the "mini wife syndrome," or the "lazy son syndrome?" I'm so confused!
I decided just because these people have procreated does not make them a parenting expert!
