Today I thought I would vent a little.
There is one thing I cannot stand and that is rudeness. I see it all the time in kids. Do parents think that manners and respect are not important to teach these days or what!!??
I went to the school the other day for open house and was so aggravated at the kids by the end of the evening that I had a long talk with my kids about manners and respect. These kids have dirty mouths and just run into you or in front of you without any care whatsoever. There are no yes maams, no sirs, or any kind of mannerism. The bad part of all of this is that the parents are to blame.
My kids say yes maam, please, no thankyou, thankyou very much, excuse me, etc. They know when they can act silly and when to behave. They understand that (most)adults deserve respect and appropriately treat them with respect.
I don't know if it's because both parents work, or if they are just lazy, or maybe parents themselves don't have any manners or respect for anyone else.......
It is the parents responsibility to teach their kids how to act and speak to adults or anyone for that matter. Kids need to learn manners, respect, and morals. Maybe that's why kids are the way they are today..'cause they have no-one to teach them these basic but essential life skills.
