Spoiled brats and Oedipus complex! How is that again?

The spoiled brats had grown and are wreaking havoc in the society. They are either sexually abusing women, carnapping, pushing drugs, or point blank killing at will. And the mothers who had come to the defenses of their sons had narrated how kind and good and exemplary their sons had been. If that is the case, then Logic had been redefined since I had studied it in college. Wheew! But the media reporters had turned psychologists. They had been commenting that these stories of mother defending sons are some sort of enacting the Greek tale of Oedipus falling in love with his mother. NB: Read the myth. The son didn't know Jocasta was his mother. Here's a better explanation. Those boys were never tended in childhood. And they had too much money nobody ever taught them how to use them. So they thought they might attract a little attention now with.

Sounds like a very sad situation. I love my sons but i never defended them when they were wrong. I know alot of mothers that have but i never agreed w/that.

God bless good mothers. God bless you, dear ANTIQUELADY. It is sane and sound to love our children, but it is genuine loving if we do not condone with their wrongdoing.

Wow, that is some honesty. I agree. When parents do not take good care of children, are having too high a social life, or too many members in the family to be able to devote adequate time to children, they do become deviant, and I have noticed that at close quarters. Funny thing is their mothers go around telling others it is a shame you are like this, and you are like that. They dont realize people are not retorting because they are being polite. Luckily in my case, god took cudgels against such women. I am kind of relieved that they are forced to reflect on their past and their progenies.

Whatever the case may be, Vannie. If they run out of luxury rooms in their jails, they can always send them here. I have the perfect holiday destination for that kind. TATA.

vandana, sometimes I do think that saphrina's package tour is a better option. I say it is good riddance.

Hi dear, Educated uncivilized generation. What else we can say about? People don't know the meaning of a healthy living. They think money and richness is around, everything is done. It is wrong. I think we need universities and college for how to live. Here in our country there is a university called, 'Oneness University'. Once I have attended a seminar over there and the head person was commenting the same. We have Colleges, universities and higher education institutions and all, unfortunately, no were they are teaching, 'How to Live'. It must be a lesson or topic in the primary school level, specifically named subject. The new, young generation is lacking all good essential qualities. It can be seen through such acts. Also, if there parents are getting sided to them, the story completes. Also, the parents should teach how to maintain a healthy parenting. Where the time is?? They don't have enough time to gossiping and ....., then where the time to take care of their children ... Hope genius people realize the value of a better generation and we can think the society will change to a decent tomorrow, at least we can wish for it .... Regards, Thank-s

thanks, I don't think it is ever too late for working for a decent tomorrow. Right now, in different Philippines universities and schools, public or private, I see many students trying to give their best in whatever fields of endeavor they had chosen. Young people engage not only in academic competitions but also in the arts, in sports, in community services like medical clinics. There is just this pack of brats, who are perhaps not intelligent enough, who try to assert their machismo by instilling fear and crime.

hi eileen, yeah you're right...and it's so damn frustrating that the cycle could really go on....such a waste and the worst thing is that these spoiled brats would kill or wreak havoc to the society just for the pleasure of it.....poor Oedipus a king with no kingdom.....the gold crown upon his head is nothing compared to the olive wreath that adorns a champions head, whose effort were rewarded with honor and respect... ...as a mother my only prayer is that I may raise my children to be good individuals and good assets in the community...

Motherhood entails responsibility, true. A mother is answerable for a child who goes astray. But of course there are black sheep who would wander long and far. For these, a mother can only pray and wait.

eileenleva I agree Oedipus rex theory is baloney. they had moms probably too busy on the social scene to worry about the spoiled brat sons until they get in trouble then they put on the mother's wrath and claim not my son, he would never do that, and they probably did not even know what he did do.Maybe even the maids or housekeepers may have raised them and not done much of a job as that was not their responsibility..

Exactly Hatley. These are disillusioned boys who are probably delineating reality in the same context with counter strike and mafia wars. They had much too much of wealth and fancy and none at all with that tender loving care.
