Children`s behaviour

I am appauled at the way children behave, not all I`ll grant you, but gosh I had a lovely friend and her children stay for a few days, man oh man, the boy who is about 7, wow if he could not get his own way, punched,kicked and swore at his mother for goodness sake if mine had of done that they would have been punished, but no this child`s grandmother, gives him what he wants to shut him up and says her daughter is too strict......I don`t know about other kids but I have seen kids behave like him.......Why are kids like this?

Now I don't know about you but I do not believe in smacking a child ever. It will never ever send the right message.
But on the other extreme is the parents who "Reason" with their children. Pfft.
When a child starts and adult must remain the adult stay calm and dish out the discipline properly.
My kids hear the words "not acceptable" and they know that something will be confiscated and they will end up in timeout.
Making your children apologise for their behaviour is another good one.
When a child speaks out of line (mine rarely do) You say " you don't speak to anyone like that. Ever."
See children are only ever on loan to us they are not ours to keep. If we hit them we are teaching them that it is ok to hit others. Which is not teaching respect at all is it?
As parents we need to be the adults and authoritarians. stand up for ourselves say no and discipline our children accordingly.
