    Maybe they've never met a real child before?

    Maybe they think they'll be better parents than everyone else, and that their child will grow up to be just exactly like them.

    (Yes, they must be delusional.)

    I my opinion, parents should be teaching their children to be nice and polite.... so their EXPECTING that is simply feedback that they have succeeded.... and... lacking that (kids behaving nice and polite) they know they have to do a little more reinforcing......

    It is true, many parents agonize over this.  I think it has more to do with the parents than the child. I believe they are afraid that people will think they are bad parents if their child misbehaves.

    My parents expected that of me and I do expect that of my kids.  Why? Because manners will take you around the world, we are taught these common courtesies and expect to live by them.  I personally dislike rude kids but given the chance I will correct them.  This is one of the golden rule that is not being practised and as such is fading.  Without manners there will be no respect.  Children should have manners as well as adults.  Well that's my take.

    It's called RESPECT and a lesson that will allow them to succeed in a world of business whether it be their own or working for another, relationships, and every other facet of life.

    When it comes to respect you get what you give. So don't be surprised if your not giving it why your not getting it.

    Because what is expected is not always what is received. I was a hellion at the table when I was a small child, I had my butt blistered with a belt and I stopped. People expect a child to do it because they do it. But you can't expect that of a child. No one can, you have to teach table manners.

    Nice and polite parents teach their children to be the same- to be nice and polite to their family, their relatives, their teachers, their friends in school, to the elders, and to strangers. It will just bring out the best in them and it makes their parents proud.

    My daughters are taught the same way, it will develop them to better human beings.
    My younger daughter's boyfriend (they are both 16) is very polite and shows good manners when he comes over for a visit.
    He does the following to me and my home:
    1) acknowledge that he has arrived with a warm hello and a hug.
    2) offers to help out in the kitchen.
    3) says a silent grace before dinner.
    4) does tidying up of the sofa where he had used it overnight.
    5) says "goodbye" and "thank you" when he leaves.

    I see that he has a good up-bringing and this reflects to the parents.

    Your children are a representation of who you are. If your children are rude then they are being disrespectful.
