In ancient times or a few years ago parents used to be more strict in raising their children, however, today it seems that we are more permissive thus creating a less balanced society, I think that everything should have a balance otherwise We could lose control of even our own home.

I see it way too often @crisma15 . And in the US, that's why more murders are being committed by 16-year-olds and younger. And maybe if more parents had to face the consequences for what their child has done, instead of a slap on the hand, things would change.

@crisma15 very true. They should know their limits as soon as they grow enough to understand what we are saying

Today. the trend, respect for relations is dying. When you visit a family, "come in, come in" will be the welcome, will talk for hours not even offering a glass of water, the children will be busy in their mobile or watching TV without even turning around and wishing the guest (aunt/uncle) sometimes even the father join the kids. What will be the future be, not time for relations, when the parents become senior, no time for them and they too have no time for themselves because the parents did not teach how important everything around is, to have a happy life. A human being requires or blessed with certain people by God, the nearest to both parents. The mother, father, sisters and brothers. This introduction is blessed to a person by God Almighty for reasons we know. The most modern parents should bear this in their minds. Have a good day.

I share your opinion, sometimes we give importance to other things and forget or neglect our children and in the future they will reflect that behavior towards us.

Strictness is required but upto a certain limit. Over strictness leads to some dangerous incidents as the children nowadays are very sentimental.

I think we have a much higher risk with electronic devices that are connected to the internet, we are at more risk than ever before about losing control of our homes. Some of the wireless setups on things like washers, refrigerators, and air conditioners, we have made it much easier for a thief, hacker, or a nosy neighbor to break into our lives through weaknesses.

That's really true. During my time growing up, kids were not just raised by the parents but also by the community. Sadly we've lost the communal society. This is why you find kids who dont respect their parents let alone other elders. But yeah, its not all about being strict. Some parents raised their kids with high-handedness in the name of been strict. So yeah, there has to be a balance. Also, here's a take, I think the capitalism driven world we live in now has contributed to this problem. Here's why, long gone are the days when a pay check could carry a family. With many adults taking two or multiple jobs to make ends meet. You find that the husband and the wife spend so many hours working. When they get home, they only have energy to eat and put the kids to bed. When morning comes, they drop the kids at school and the cycle goes on. So the kids basically get raised by television and society. I believe this is a part of the problem.. and let me remind you, these kids of now will also be parents tomorrow. So after they've been raised this way, they will have a much harder time raising disciplined kids than their own parents.

What a successful comment friend, it really is true everything you say there are more children alone at home than attended by parents.
