saw an old lady chasing a group of girls a while ago..one of them is her daughter, she keeps on calling her, trying to get her attention but she just ignored her.. made me mad! that teen is so arrogant, she doesn't respect her elders and impolite. she needs to go back to grade 1 to learn Good Manners And right Conduct again..

That sure make me mad, too! I really get mad whenever I call my son and he ignores me. I mean, what is he trying to prove in doing that? Being disappointed with such actions, I sometimes go up my room and cry coz it hurts a lot. I hope these kids realize how much they can hurt their parents just by ignoring them.

Exactly! But if our kids are almost 10-11 years old, I think giving them timeouts might create some friction between mom and kid.

mae_ais I am a father, and what I think about discipline and respect starts at home. I think that girl is not right in the way she conduct herself, however most parents does not realized she is the product of their actions. When it was time for them to get tough on her, they did not and when she start to rebel, honesty I do not think there is anything we can do but hope she can return to better ways.

yes, i was angry and also sad because i know i couldn't do anything to help..i don't have the right to discipline her.. i have kids to and i am praying that someday my kids will not do the same way to me and their father.. we don't show them violence and try to talk to them calmly when they break rules, etc..someday that girl will be parent too, hope that her children will not be like her in the future..

mae_ais I always told myself that they can be cute not but when they build it to a habit they become irritating and rude when they grow older. That is why sometimes I am rather tough at a young age, people think I have been too harsh, but I feel you spare the rod and spoil the child. Of course my child does not need the rod yet as other things might hurt her more. Like the naughty chair and time out corner. I hope it would help discipline her till she is well into her teenage years.

That is definitely true, most of the teens nowadays are growing without any manners and respect for the elder, sad but true. I am a mom myself and I would see to it that my son will grow up with respect for all the elders.

yes, i will make sure my kids will be the same way too.. yet some teens are being influenced by peers not just people at their own house..

That's so mean. And that kind of attitude shouldn't be let go just like that. It's sad to say that most of today's teens have very little regard for their parents, much less for any other elderly people. Back when I was a teen (about 10 years ago, lol!), this kind of attitude is shunned upon by everyone. Nobody encourages this and my own friends will even stay away from me if they learned that I did something like that to my own parent. It's so sad that good old values are no longer being uphold by most teenagers nowadays.

I was thinking the young girl needed to learn a lesson. I would think she would turn around and listen to her parents. most kids could care less though.

hi, attitude of a person is very important because that will reflect you,so when a person really have a bad attitude they are arrogant and sometimes stubborn too,that is why parents and teachers at school should develop and mold them to have a good attitudes.

It is a sad fact that many teens are into such attitudes nowadays.. We, however, also have to consider many factors around such behaviors. Take, for instance, how the parent might have been treating the child? Personally, if i were a child raised with love and warmth and regard for other people's feelings, would I be treating my mother that way? It is also possible that she developed such behavior around peers. Do her friends reinforce her more than her family does? Do they affirm her more than her family? I believe that there's always a cause. Yup, I guess I'd flare up should my kids do that to me, but at the same time, that should also make me reflect, right?
