why is it that adult kids of today think their parents owe them?Do they ever think about or appreciate the fact that their parents worked their tails off to provide for them,get them through school and keep a roof over their heads and food in their stomachs!gave them what they needed and more when possible.life is a strugle at times and their parents have been there done that at times,worked hard to make a better life.if your parents taught you how to provide for your family,be thankful .set goals and be proud when you achieve them and if you think everything is someone elses fault,you will suffer a lot!you will be miserable and misery loves company.grow up and take responsibility for your own life and if you have a family it was your choice to have one so take care of them and if your parents taught you how to do that appreciate them.If you don't have family you have nothing!life is not promised to be easy,so live laugh and love your family while you can,they may be gone tomorrow and you can't get it back!drop the anger and the pride and love one another while you can.your life will be so much happier and you will feel better inside.drop the baggage and lighten your load,and you can move on in life and be productive and enjoy life!if you have children,you will soon learn what your parents went through to raise you!be thankful,be kind be loveing and grateful!it's up to you now to teach your children how to be thankful for your struggles and hard work and love for them.wake up before it's too late,let go of hate and annimosity and love the ones who loves you and will always be there for you!Family!

They learn what you teach them throughout their lives. If your adult kids are ungrateful, you're the ones that made them that way.

I also blame schools. They do not teach respect, tell kids their parents cannot spank them anymore, and just take what they want from other kids. When I found out my grandchildren could not use the pencils I had bought them for 1st grade because the whole class shares and all must be the same, I was outraged. What happened to each child being responsible for their own supplies? Resecting others items? Learning that not all children always have the same items? I thank God for the childhood I had. We may have been poor, but I did not know it. We learned to share, have respect, be grateful for what we had, and take care of it.

Yes it is. It is ALWAYS the parents' fault, and you just gave the reason for it. You give little Johnney every thing he wants and never make him work for it or earn it, and therefore he never learns the value of it. You give, give, give and THAT is what creates your ungrateful monsters.

You're a retard. It's not the school's place to teach respect, it's the PARENTS. If the kids aren't taught respect at home, they will NEVER learn it at school.

More often than not, if the schools try to discipline kids or teach them anything like respect, the loser parents are up at the school bi+ching and threatening law suits.

Its not always the parents fault, I will agree most of the time it is but not always. They think the crap they do when they are little is cute and never correct them, just laugh. By doing that you are helping create the problem.

you can teach your kids manors,responsibility and teach them how to put in a,good days work,and how to make a living,but that does'n mean they learn it!or use what they are taught when they leave home.yes today our kids a woosess they want everything give to them,they don't want to struggle and they are jealous of those who don't struggle,he thing is,your parents struggled when they started out but they kept a roof over your head and food in your stomach and gave you what you needed and sometimes more,so kids should appreciate their raiseing and want to do more to make a living for their chosen family.but no some kids think everything is someone elses faught,when in reality whos to blame for your chois is only you yourself so pull your big girl panties up and step up to the plate and accept responsibility before it's too late and you might think hard about who taught you to be a man or a woman.and thank them and love them.if your holding a grudge against someone you are only giving them free rent in your head!grow up!

I totally agree ! You can't always blame parents . This generation of kids and young adults today are totally without respect for others . They give away their kids or let them go hungry . It's the most selfish generation I've ever seen !

No, you cannot always blame the parents. My children and grandchildren are the most disrespectful kids around. They did not do without, I think we gave them way to much. My grandchildren talk to me like I would never have spoken to ANY adult. I knew better, and not because I thought I would be punished, because I was taught you did not speak to adults like that, let alone your grandparents. I love my family, but I am telling you I am sick of it. They only come around when they need something and I promise you they will be there then. Don't misunderstand, they are not drinkers or partiers, the are snobs. I personally believe we told them they were beautiful, perfect and smart to much that they actually believe it. Boy, have they got a lot to learn.

The coarseness of our culture feeds disrespect. Most millenials have not ever experienced going without, with the current political situation they are about to have a rude awakening! In the meantime I will still love and value my children. Being of sound mind and body, I will continue to enjoy my retirement and spend as much of their inheritance as possible, it is only fair!

Once we turn 18 we are responsible for our path in life. We are born with a mind of our own. I have to say that very few adults reach out and help their parents in anyway. It's all gimme gimme gimme but never give in return. When we see our adult children get themselves into a mess then we are quick to bail them out so here is my solution, Make 2014 a year of adult lessons to be learned. If your adult children have a problem then allow them to deal with it and resolve it on their own. I personally am making my New Years Resolution about taking care of me and me alone. I refuse to carry the load of ungrateful children any longer. I will have nice clothes, nice shoes and a nice life.

Good for you...screw these who do not understand personal responsibility and consequences. Make them learn since they haven't on their own.
