Hi, I was just wondering why it is so hard to teach kids manners? Some kids are so rude it's unbelievable. I think I do my best to teach my kids to not be rude to other people and no they are not perfect either. But my kids know better then to disrespect another adult. So why is it so hard for other people to teach there kids the appropriate manners?

I don't think it's hard at all. The parents are just too lazy to bother themselves with that very delicate task. I've seen parents who'll give EVERYTHING their children wants just to get them off their hair. They don't bother thinking that such lack of discipline would bounce right back at them until they realize that they've created monsters they couldn't control. Then they'd go asking "where did I go wrong, I gave you everything you wanted" Well, SURPRISE! Not everything these kids want are the same as what they need. Come on parents, time to give some tough love.

hi raynebow its not hard to teach kids good manners if the parents always set a good example of good manners. it is'hard to make a kid behave nicely if you misbehave yourself towards him. I like to see parents that have great manners towards others start to teach little kids those same great manners. It is not hard if a child is brought up in a well mannered home as' he willstart to get used to the proper way to treat other people. it will become second nature and others will compliment you on your well mannered children.Heres to good manners in 'both adults and children, may they live long and prosper. lol
