I have witnessed parents nagging their children to death! Instead of getting their point across to them, it drives them away. It's not that the child is trying to be disrespectful but the constant nagging is like someone scratching their nails on a chalkboard.
What are your thoughts? What kind of advice can you give?
Anyone who believes nagging is communicating intelligently needs to learn the truth. Nagging is a form of communication but the lesson the child is learning is not what you want them to. All the children who live here or have lived here get no nagging. When they are asked to do something they either do it or are put in time out. When they come out of time out their infraction is discussed and they are taught what the proper response is to be. In the end this takes less time to get something accomplished than nagging. With time and consistency children listen and obey better using this model.
Parents nagging works both ways, when children see and live through it they start nagging also often at a very young age. Unless this is something you don't mind listening to its better to use another method to get the results you want. Here the new children are put in time out for doing the nagging also.
This is based on what is currently being used in my home which has at times 12 children at the same time from different parents. It is considered a safe house for battered women and their children.

Do you think more children today are disrespectful than they were 60 years ago?We learn from our media all about bullying and bloody girl fights. Even though bullying existed in the 50s and "cat" fights were known among the girls, is this more intense today and why?
