I think most adults are rude, disrespectful and bratty! Children tend to mimic what they see and hear. Many of the old fashioned ways of parenting are just as effective now as they were way back when...it is just a matter of deciding which ways go along my parenting style (ie. No spanking)

I think that the new generation of parents are seeing that no discipline doesn't work and are making an effort to change things.
I don't think that means going old school, it just means accepting that parents can be friends to adult children, but need to discipline until they become adults.

I agree with Jenn too. Adults and people in general are rude these days, no wonder kids are. Monkey see monkey do.

Agreed that adults these days are very different to what they used to be especially my age group.. and that is a result of the new age parenting. Bring back the old days and the world would be a much better place.

I agree with Jenn I work retail and it's easy to see where they get it from! I believe it's my job as a parent to teach my child manners and respect and based on his how he behaves I think my husband and I are doing a pretty good job.
