    Who is responsible for teaching children manners and good behavior? Parents or Teachers?

    If a student is disruptive in class, should the teacher correct the situation or should the parents get involved? Should the parent go against the teacher. or work together with the teacher to help correct the situation? Are the children in America learining to blame others for their actions?

    Manners and good behavior should come from the parents. Teachers are responsible for things like math, science, and reading. Teachers can help to guide the students along a path of better behavior and manners, but that foundation has to come from the parents. If it doesn't, there isn't much a teacher can do in the classroom other than manage the bad behavior.

    Ive worked with students, teachers and parents on a variety of levels. I always find I can pick out the kids who have little guidance at home. While on a field trip they are unruly, loud, over dramatic. They push for my attention in any way possible, including negative attention. And when their parents are along for the field trip, It's easy to pair up who belongs with who. "Good behavior" is a fundamental lesson.. how to behave in society.. and is something that should be taken on by the person who spends the most one-on-one time with the child - his parents.

    In the childs life, the parents first and the teachers are second in responsible for teaching children manners and good behavior. Yes, the teacher should correct the situation as the school is the teachers zone of instruction. Most parents cannot be there for every situation to correct their children. The parent and teacher should work together to help the child. However, most parents and teachers disagree so they should try to at least teach the same thing or something similar.

    Teachers have to have control of the classroom but overall parents are responsible for teaching their children appropriate behavior.  Parents and teachers need to work hand in hand to take care of disruptive behavior. 

    And yes, for whatever reason, it seems the majority of Americans of all ages blame everyone but themselves for their actions.  Taking personal responsibility seems to be getting more rare.

    It is up to all adults to teach children social skills.

    I believe parents are responsible for teaching their children manners and good behavior.  By the time they start school, they should have the basic knowledge of what is acceptable and what is not tolerated.

    Every year I communicate with my children's teachers and let them know they are able to contact me any time with any concern they have.  I take their concerns and advice very seriously as they do mine.  Working together is the best option.

    I have encountered many great teachers that have been an asset to both my children in school, but have also had the misfortune of having a teacher who had the attitude that she was going to teach the children how to act correctly through intimidation and threats. 

    Ultimately I think it's the parents responsibility.

    its obvious that the parent/s aren't doing their job to begin with.  When parents aren't responsible you can see this through the childs behavior.  I say make principal aware of what is taking place regardless of how simple it may be.  Kids that take the initiative to behave out of control will contjnue to do so.  Its best the principal give the parent/s some alternatives so that the parent can step up to the plate.  Teachers are in school to teach.  If you decide to go beyond your responsibilities, that child in addition to their irresponsible parent may not like it

    The parents without doubt. The Teacher when the time for school arrives, has to teach the child, who's attitudes are already there. The Teacher bears the responsibility of teaching and encouraging the child. If insurmountable difficulties surface then the Teacher should bring in the parent. If the problem is over attitude, the Teacher should make it clear to the parent that there should be a change in their attitude to the child.

    Both. It's as simple as that. A teacher has a child for majority of hours during the week. A parent has the child the remainder of the school day and weekends.

    The whole community. However, parents are the ones who need to care who their child is interacting with so they can reduce the negative manners from their children's experience.
    The few unhealthy manners which children do learn from the outside world and family should be mitigated through unbroken parent-child communication.
