The problem is both the parents and the kids.
How you raise your kids WILL have an impact on how the behave in the future. We can't deny that.
Let's take two extremes, a crackwh0re's kid and a pastor's kid for example. Raised differently they will behave differently when they grow up.
If you can't raise your kid with at least a minimum set of values, proper behaviour and respect, you failed.
Now for the kids part,
Nowadays they have everything they wine for. Say a 4yr old is in a store with his mommy and starts to cry and wine about some shit toy he wants. Mommy tells him to be quite, to stop crying, that she wont buy it, but it dosnt work. The kid is getting louder and louder and people start looking at the women with her kid. Not to be embarassed anymore, she gives in and gets the damn toy to make him shut up.
And that's the recipe for spoiled self-centered brats of the 21st century.
Giving a spanking, telling the kid to shut the fuck up and dragging him out fo the store is a big no-no. Hell, some want spanking to be outlawed. Where's the world going?
It's ironic how i said "Now for the kids part" and talked about the mother.
But everything starts fromt he parents.
Sure, you said toefur, you dont blame your parents for your mistakes, but thats because you'v long ago crossed the maturity line.
When does maturity hit nowadays? For most a hell lot later then in the old days that's for sure. Look at all those sissies and pussies. They can't just commit tradditionnal suicide if they want, they have to take 10 more people with them. And that's what we call an "Attention Wh0re".
In my oppinion we'd need WW3 to build a solid character in all those low-lifes. Send them to war, without their marilon manson cd, but a good fucking book. What percentage of kids read books on their own today, not school imposed stuff. 0.0001%? Technology is great, but we'r starting to drown in it, becomming softer and wimpier everyday as a society.
And as I say, Society Sucks.
