Ps: either too strict or too soft parenting is also a factor.

Because if you discipline them CPS comes a knockin at your door. Sad state of affairs but its very true... especially if you have kids in pulaski county school system. All they do there is interrogate your kids on what home life is like. Mine get whoopins if their bad or disrespectful. You will never see one of my children acting like a hooligan. CPS can come knocking all they want..they better have a damn good reason for bothering me or a warrant otherwise they will be lettin the door hit them where the sun don't shine. Bottom line is some People are scared to discipline.

too many parents want to be friends with their kids instead of parents first. It may not be as popular as it once was but I spank my kids (as my parents did me). My kids know I love them and that I wont hesitate to swat their bottoms. Its not necessarily what is best or the preferred method for all children but the results are good with mine. I have 3 young boys and spank them with my hand (they know that if that doesn't work a paddling is next so most of the time my hand suffices. They are well behaved (for the most part) and because we have good communication and lots of love there are no associated issues and its all good!

It's never ok to smack a child or anyone in the mouth. I'm not against spanking but face smacking is cruel and degrading.

I've seen grown adults act childish and disrespectful.

It's has to do with psychological maturity and not necessarily physiological maturity.

They act that way because the adults n their life model that type behavior. They are rewarded with all kinds of new gadgets even with exhibiting bad behavior. No one has respect for themselves much less others. Instead of do unto others as you would have them do unto you to do unto others b4 they can do unto you. So sad

Because their parents do not check them for their own good *COMMON SENSE*
Which will all make them future B****** and B******* just like their parents are!

I used to think firmly that kids would be different and a lot better than their parents but NOPE!NOT EVEN CLOSE!

The younger generation and the future citizens of our country will grow up to be no different than the citizens that are living in this nation we see today and the younger generation will be even WORSE.I really don't mean this in a harsh way but I honestly HATE CHILDREN.I thought at first they would be innocent and to young to understand bad stuff but I realize that they are nothing but a bunch of stupid,stinky,smelly,sarcastic ,rude,foul-languaged, and UNCOUTH LITTLE GREMLINS that will rule our country in the very future we will see years later,PERIOD!

Partially poor parenting but mainly you can't whoop their ASS without getting into trouble. Now it is go to your room, you are in time out. When I grew up you got an ass whooping. I think back years and appreciate my parents for everyone of them.

Most of the time, the girls are the rude ones. Does anyone have an idea why that is?

All you have to do is spend five minutes on Topix to understand why kids today are rude and disrespectful. They learn it from their parents.
