Stop spoiling your kids and be a parent

Posted on: November 28, 2009

I have been having a hard time writing blogs lately. It seems as though we have covered nearly every topic out there. So, here goes and attempt to uncover something new and thought provoking… One thing that has caught my attention over the past week is how children talk to their parents. Well, I guess not so much children as teenagers. Growing up, my parents were very strict. We were not allowed to even say penis or vagina. If we were to say butt, we would get our mouth washed out with soap. So what is going on with teens calling their mom “bitch” and speaking to the parents like they are pieces of trash? One of my friends is the child of a state trooper. He is very strict, yet he allows her to refer to her mother as “bitch,” and speak very rudely to her. They think it is funny.
On youtube there is a video made showing Miley Cyrus treating her dad in such “loving” ways. She hangs up on him when he calls to tell her he loves her, she cuts him off in the middle of his sentences… it goes on. But this is supposed to be love? This is how we should allow our children to treat us? I hate to be the bully here, but if one of my children were to cut off my husband in the middle of a sentence… well, it would not be pretty. If they were to hang up the phone on him when he called to say hi, well, again, it would not be pretty.
I do not understand why parents would allow their kids to talk down to them. They are not making friends by doing this. They are only hurting their kids. Another video on Youtube shows a girl screaming at her grandma for her child support money. Now why would she get this and not her caretaker? Where do these kids get this sense of entitlement from? She is not only screaming for her money, but she is also calling her names in the process.
I would think that with all the drama and rudeness and disgusting behavior being portrayed to us that it would sicken us and make us shut it off. But it seems as though not only do we soak it in, we allow our children to do so. They mirror this behavior. It is very sad, and does not leave me with a “warm fuzzy” feeling. Stop spoiling your kids and step up and be a parent. It is never fun to discipline your children. But it is the right thing to do.

Interesting blog! However, I would like for you to consider a different perspective. I’m going to stay away from commenting on parenting skills and steer my response toward analyzing both videos.

First, the video of Miley Cyrus demonstrates the power of editing and the degrading interpretation of Miley – to include the impact of young women in the media. Granted, Miley has expressed comments that may not favor her father at times, but her relationship with her father appears to be no different compared to other father/daughter relationships throughout America. Isn’t the media – to include new media – taking advantage of Miley with these unwarranted tactics?

The second video is straight up dysfunctional. I see clear indicators of psychological and/or clinical manifestation of something greater than what we are seeing in the video. Though I am not a fan of Miley, it’s unfair to place these two extremes in the same category.

I was not saying both of these videos are the same. The point is that both videos depict young kids disrespecting those that they shouldn’t be. Mu husband and I talk about this all the time. There is such a horrible lack of respect shown to adults now a days and is sad. Miley knows that she is in the media and that hundreds of thousands of girls look up to her. She should step up and be a better role model. I do not think it is cute or even funy to disrespect your parents. She obviously does. Granted, she is young and has so much to learn, but it seems like it starts so young anymore. Then it just gets worse.

It is way too often i hear a kid disrespecting their parents! Celebrities do it to their parents and so do average, everyday kids and teens. I think in the past punishment would have been much more severe when it came to actions such as these. It is completely normal in my eyes to disagree with your parents and of course argue and fight, what bothers me is when it is an everyday thing and the parent does nothing about it. It is not okay to have your child break everything in your home, curse you out, and emotionally abuse you, and then take them for ice cream!
