My children are ruder than I was growing up. My children say things to me that I never would have considered saying to my parents because I was afraid of being slapped in the face. My children do not have that fear. They know that, regardless of what they say, they are going to be loved unconditionally. Although many would consider my children disrespectful at times, I happen to love their candor. Along with that rudeness is also genuine happiness and affection. Although I may have been a polite child at all times, those genuine feelings of bliss were also masked in my childhood. Personally, I prefer the real.
Today’s children are definitely ruder than they were 20 years
ago. Perhaps it is because there are so
many teenagers having children nowadays.
The large number of single parent households has also contributed to
kids being rude in my opinion. In the
past, parents were more likely to physically discipline their children, which
helped to make the kids behave. Now we
have spared the rod and spoiled the children.
