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?

If you cannot invest 3-5 years at home then don't have them. I worked my behind off for many years before having children in order to stay home for 4 years & I made a choice to only have 2, I thought I could handle two & stay on top of things, if my husband was not around one day I think I could take 2 kids through life ok. So I spend my days keeping my children occupied with activities, interacting with other children, etc along the way is teaching constantly how to respect everybody, the house, the dog, the toys, book, food absolutely everything! It's not easy which is why I knew 2 would be my max so I don't get into "oh well" attitude & definately would not expect my eldest to teach or raise my youngest, that doesn't work well either. I see kids walk around playground with food in their hand? Coming down a slide with a biscuit in their mouth? I think basic food & table manners, also keeping our equipment clean. I see kids unwrap something & throw the packaging on the floor & the guardian is no where to be seen. Sorry if it sounds like a rant but these kids we fail to raise with basic ethics are what are going to be released into society one day. There is a time & place for everything, learning that is the key
