  • Because adults / parents are less respectful these days & they teach their children their own bad habits.
  • Parents do not have respect for others; they do not teach their children to be respectful; and it is every man for himself.
  • Because there is NO discipline anymore. Spare the rod and spoil the child. People are sparing the rod nowadays.
  • Lack of proper discipline and knowledge of what is actually considered respectful behavior.
  • "The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority, they show disrespect to their elders.... They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and are tyrants over their teachers." Plato, 330 BC.
  • Because you can't spank them and yelling is frowned apon these days. People see it as being violent. I see it as demanding respect and obedience.
  • That’s a good question... We should ask their parents maybe, coz now days they just don't care about their kid’s good manners and all. And I’m really afraid what is going to be in future, when today’s little punks will have kids...
  • Too many mothers wont disipline there children .they feel soo guilty that they work full time that they spoil the crap out of their kids.sorry too blame mothers but this is what i find.
  • These days? Maybe the crew you rolled with wasn't so disrespectful when you were a kid, but by and large, it's a phase. However, that doesn't make it okay. The phase can become a component of their personality if left unchecked.
  • Definitely also the influence of movies and TV. Somehow, the thinking has become that children know more than adults and they tell the adults how to behave. I just don't know how this came about, but the movies/TV are full of it.
  • disipline most likely. But I have seen a lot of woman and young girls who are not ready to be mothers but still have about 4 kids. (Not all of them) Some even only have kids so that they can get money for them. I knoe a woman how had had 17 kids no joke and donsn't look after any of them. all the little ones are looked after by the older ones. There is a lot of that going on just watch Jeremy Kyle and your see that. +5
  • They are what your generation raised them to be. Nothing more.
  • Everyone has a different definition of what respectful is. In the old days, or should I say when I was young, respectful was doing what any adult told you to do when they told you to do it or you were beat. Now children seem to live more care free and are able to express and have their own opinions. Personally, I prefer that to brow beaten angry children.
  • Parents hold their kids to a lower standard now
  • because their Parents did not TEACH and Demand it!!!! IT STARTS AT HOME...LOVE, DISCIPLINE AND RESPECT....
  • Kids aren't trying to shove religion and politics down anybody's throat. I say it's the adults who need to be put in their places.
  • 6-1-2017 The biggest reason is that taxes are so high. Mommies have to work to support the family, and nobody has time for proper parenting.
