    People have been complaining about "the kids today" since Shakespeare's time. I doubt that today's hooligans are any more rude than the hooligans of the 16th century.

    I would definitely say that the current generation is horribly behaved.  The government has taken parental rights to discipline and turned them into a joke.  When I was 5 years old, if I stepped out of line, I'd get my behind beaten.  Now if you try to spank your child, you're facing jail time.  Hardly seems fair.

    parenting has gone through so many different styles. that seems to be part of the problem, and often kids basically are raising themselves or whatever environment they spend the most time in influences their morals and behavior.
    I wrote a few hubs on this subject which may be helpful. here is one of them. http://hubpages.com/hub/Teaching-Values … oung-Child   it links to another one about parenting styles and discipline.

    There are too many people (not all) who just crank out litters of spawn without any idea of how to raise, support, and educate them.  Then all the do-gooders cry to government to step in.  Government has usurped many parental rights, even the rights of the few conscientious parents.  And you should know that anything government touches turns to "shinola".  (EGTTTS)

    If a child is undisciplined and rude, I think its probably the parents fault for having no idea what they are doing or just not caring enough. Children who behave bad, normally are trying to get attention. All they need is a positive influence. Also, younger people who have no life expericences are having kids, how are they supposed to guide a child when they yet are one too?
