Govt is partially to blame. Too many do gooders preventing parents
from properly disciplining their children. The other problem is
pompous parents allowing their kids to believe no adult can touch
them. I recall when I, and several other parents, hadda stop two
policemen from hauling off a working single mother after she did no
more than give her daughter a thoroughly deserved spanking --not
beating, bludgening, or other form of physical abuse-- for leaving
home and wandering off downtown, 5 blocks away. The kid knew the
rules and was old enough to know she did wrong.
Kids are more than aware of the sanctions against adults. I had a 6
yr old kid, who was tormenting my 5 yr old daughter, look me square in
the eye and tell me, "You touch me and you'll be in jail in 5
minutes"! I was stunned. This was not much later than the policemen
and the mother incident. Instead, I went to the kids father and told
him to reign in his kid or I was gonna kick his ass (the father ass).
Still, kids have little or no respect for adults, these days. You
can't expect the school, where you dump yer kid fer 5-7 hrs, to
maintain any sort of discipline if you tell the school you'll sue the
shit outta them if they lay a hand on yer kid.
Kids are the out of control monsters only because we, as a supposedly
enlightened society, have allowed them to be. They must be taught
there are consequences to their actions and they WILL be held
responsible. A simple five across the eyes will set the tone and
deliver the message. ;)
