im not sure about that, as i wasnt an adult to really notice this 10-15 years ago. but i think it may be very true.
i have noticed this generation of young parents, is very "me" centered, and they also seem to suck ASS at saying no, and administering any kind of discipline. its really sad, as the kids suffer the most by having no real structured parenting to teach them how to behave in this world. then when it matters, like at a job interview, they are fucked.
guess what mrs/mr sitting at starbucks with your giant sunglasses and tight jeans, when your kid is flipping out, doing the following.
2. saying in your sugar sweet no kid left behind voice, "sweetie pie, use your indoor voice now, please quiet down so the nice man can read." and then going back to your extra grande mocha latte whatever.
doesnt do shit.
step 1, get your head out of your self centered ass.
step 2, be proactive and firm in telling your kid what they are doing is not ok.
step 3, give a warning.
step 4, if not heeded, pick up and head out. unmet threats teach your kids you are a pussy. but follow through a few times and they learn to behave right quick.
also, sometimes your kid is in a no good mood, and just needs to be home, not out and about. you gotta give a little of yourself to be a parent.
