Alright, I was watching Super Nanny the other day and I noticed how god damn ridiculous parenting is getting. A few examples:

They had a 'snack box'. Your child picks three snacks to put in this box, and at the scheduled time they take out one to eat. What the hell is up with this? I'm only seventeen, but "when I was a kid", if I was hungry, I'd get something out of the refrigerator or the ****ting cupboard. I didn't need a box to dictate what and when I ate.

Second, the naughty cube. It's a cube-shaped seat the child sits on when they misbehave. They sit on this for a certain period of time. What the ****? When the children were set on this box, they simply got up and walked away. The parents, eventually, almost started to cry they were so frustrated. Just threaten your kid with a belt, show them YOU are the parent and YOU run the show. Parents these days are sissies. Well, the ones you see on television.

Third...well, I don't even have a third one. Just to say that kids these days are generally rude, inattentive, and wayyyyy too needy. And it bugs the living hell out of me. I don't know why, it just does.

tl;dr: Too bad, read it.

Children are raised by Government standards now and not by discipline. They should learn the way they used to do it. Do something wrong, and get punished. It's behavioural conditioning. Doing something wrong and getting told to sit on a cube just doesn't cut it.

People have been saying "kids these days" for 3000 years. You were probably the same, just too much of a dumb ass to realize.

Nope. I actually was well behaved, my parents didn't need any techniques or any of that crap. They told me what was expected of me and I did it.

Well, you obviously missed out on the fun of being a child. I was the most stubborn little **** ever.

My point is don't think you're the first to say it, if I remember Socrates said the same thing, or Aristotle. I dunno, someone from those times anyway. Kids have been "getting increasingly rude" since the dawn of time. We can't change it.

Very true... if only we could. It's just kind of bothersome when you're at a place like a restaurant and loud, obnoxious children act up and generally make a scene.

I was an asshole kid until like 5th grade or so... my mom even put me on a leash when I was little

But seriously, kids need assbeatings, not time-out.

Yeah, this is because people let books and every other person with an opinion and enough money to market it raise their children. People need to take pride in raising their children by their own standards and not just follow some stupid guidelines.

it is becasue of the lack of masculine influence in a childs life(divorce, knockin up ur girlfriend). the dad is the hunter and the mom is the caretaker. it was like this for years. now nothing against women in the workplace, but they can not do BOTH efficiently. if u raise a child with one parent, then u dont see things from the others point of view, it is unbalanced. there r just more single moms raising kids than dads.

o and alot of married men with kids have had their ****ing nuts removed and let their kid do whatever they want.

im no Leykis fan, nor did i get this from Bill Cosby saying young black men need to be responsible with their families, but i really do think this is an issue today

Honestly, when I was a kid, I got spanked if I did something horrible, or grounded. This whole thing is stupid, and parents need to go back to the way things were. If abuse is illegal, then the whole prison system needs to be looked at and re-evaluated carefully.

Or, if kids were raised properly and occasionally smacked with a belt on their keesters, maybe we wouldn't need prisons anyways.

Way to make your kid hate you.

Physical punishment does nothing.

My parents beat my ass until it was numb, I was still an arrogant little prick.

Well I think the main reason that parents these days don't beat their kids is because kids these days know more about the world through the TV, internet, etc so if a parent beat a kid the kid could just go to the police. Around here a parent got mad at they're 6 year old and left him alone in the house. He was mad at the parent so he called the police to ask a math question and the police said, "why don't you ask your parents?" He said he was alone and the police arrested the parents and sent them to jail for a year.

Parents should never demand respect but earn respect from their children.

Unfortunately, nobody respects anybody in today's society.

Yes, but I think parenting as a whole has changed with the last generation. I don't know why, but it just seems like it has. Parents aren't applying THEIR OWN methods of parenting, or what they think is best. They follow what they see on TV, read in books or magazines by what 'experts' tell them.

I'd like to point out that these kids are on tv because their behavior was so bad that their parents contacted the show. Their actions are probably not indicative of the majority of little kids.

I hate it when kids act completely idiotic and the parents stand there shaking their head, as if they got no way of controlling their kid.

Why Christian? I hope anyone who saw a parent "open a can of whoop ass" on their kid would get reported.

Discipline =/= Whoop ass. In the metaphoric sense. It is in the literal sense.

My parents whooped my ass sometimes when I was being a real jerk as a kid.

Personally, I'm glad they did. Cause then they'd come back, gimme a hug, explain WHY they did it and I'd get it sooner or later. I still love them, and I don't really have any problems or self-esteem issues.....I think.

Christian family was the example fitting in the stereotype that there all strict, prim and proper. Example: the family at the beginning of that tenacious D movie.

I'm just saying tv is not showing how families run things usually.
