Are kids becoming more obstinate and stubborn due to liberty and laws imposed by government?

I have heard and found about parenting in most western countries , children have a liberty and can call police for any stringent measures by parents. If a child behaves awkward in public still strangers can not react against them. I personally believe it spoils the generation entirely and kids can not learn discipline, social manners and generosity. Kids must be aware of the gravity of education and learnings in their young age as these attributes make them good citizens of the country.

i agree . The western countries have placed so much liberty for the children to report their parents that at a small mistake of action by their parents they would call the police to report . In the Philippines , we can discipline the child by slapping gently their hands , to instill in their minds that they have done wrong .

@SIMPLYD glad to hear that in Phillipines it is not implemented . It could be the reason that youngsters are commmonly involved in shootout and getting spoiled.

A vast amount of the population anticipated this result when those absurd laws were introduced.

@Asylum is it implemented in UK/ England as well? I have heard of such laws in Canada and the United States.

Certainly most everyone is against child abuse of any kind. Children can be disciplined in a loving way. Discipline does not mean punishment. It means guiding the child in the right direction so that that child will become a responsible adult.

@IreneVincent the laws were made to avoid abuse and how far can loving ways teach kids to learn discipline?

I think "Authoritative" (as compared to "Authritarian") or "Egalitarian" parenting can work, but not when take to an extreme. Children feel safer with limits and boundaries. Sometimes "because me big and you little and I said so" or "because that's the rule" is OK.
