    the progressive seperation of parents from their kids, including parents beliefs and ideals.

    Kids are being raised by peers, television, and teachers upon teachers.

    I only have one teacher i would and have ever gone to for advice, the rest are blah.


    AS inoffensively as i can put this, I think the feminist movement had a huge part of this. When the woman would stay home, raise the children (instead of babysitters and daycare), handle the household duties, and actually stay married(less adultery/divorces), it would create a family environment for the kid.

    Iknow that's alot to ask, and unfair as well, but that held kids to their roots.

    I also think that this is a natural progression that couldnt have been avoided, and placing blame is pointless.

    Parents who are results of bad parenting, the saga continues.

    I am all for stay at home Dad's like Foreman, the Mr. Mom's of the world deserve credit.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Exactly. They are the ones who think that MTV, schools, and video games should raise their kids instead of them.

    Parents. All the other ones are just excuses that people, such as the media, use to blame shift.

    It's funny you ask, because I work at a h.s. and have this conversation ALL the time.

    I didn't graduate from h.s. that long ago (only 6yrs), yet I notice that the kids act how I acted in when I was in middle school. They are SO irresponsible, SO immature and straight childish.

    There are many reasons why kids act the way they do. But the top one has to be parenting. Not saying that the parents are bad people, but they just didn't raise their child right. BUT, parents are not the only ones to blame. Society has a huge impact on how a child grows up. I think the next biggest thing is how everything in society nowadays is made to be convenient. Nowadays you can get ANYTHING in the world you want with the click of a button.
    When I was in h.s., having a CD player and buying your favorite CD to listen to was a big deal. Now, kids have tiny mp3's that hold 10,000 songs, videos, pictures, email etc and fit in their pockets...all with the click of a button.
    When i was in h.s., we had to make time to talk to people on the phone when we were home. Now EVERY single kid in the entire school has a cell phone.
    So i beileve society's natural progression towards making everything more convenient has ironically led to the ultimate destruction of our youth...

    You bring up a valid point about things being made easier and easier for them. But who buys these things for them, usually? Damn kids are spoiled, I tell you. Not too many know how to earn things on their own. It's a shame, they are our future, and people just don't get it. But then again, each generation has said the same thing about the younger generation.

    I think kids are more spoiled these day's cause their baby boomer grandparents are spoiling them.

    funny this thread is here kids n schools ... my son is 8, is in third grade and has adhd and oppositional defiance disorder. he refused to take his coat off at lunch. he was coming down w a fever n was cold. 3 women held him down n forcibly removed his coat then dragged him to a closet n locked him in the dark till his teacher came n got him. his teacher said he was wailing for his mom. noone bothered to call me i live 500 ft from the school. the police just left here a bit ago cuz i called them to make a report about the bruises he is covered with.
