    So. Very. Familiar. “Don’t touch that!” “Touch what? This?” BREAK.

    I agree, in the past year they have been rude, and disrespectful to their grandmother on more than one occasion. Time for granny to bring out the fly swatter and swat some bottoms.

    I also agree-go for it granny. I work in an elementary school and most of the kids nowadays are like that. They don’t listen and have no respect. Administration and teachers spend more time working on behavior plans (that don’t work because it starts at home and too many parents don’t care) than teaching.

    They always have to find out for themselves – no matter the consequences.

    double agree, I drive a school bus for elem’s & middles. Most of our drivers would rather have two middle routes than their elementary one. Bring back corporal punishment! At least at home.
    gawd I miss the screams….

    “Administration and teachers spend more time working on behavior plans (that don’t work because it starts at home and too many parents don’t care) than teaching.”

    Parently and teachers are stuck rowing the same leaky boat, but they can’t be induced to work together. More divide and conquer, and it’s the parents, the teachers, and the kids who lose.

    Teaching fourth graders to ‘call the cops if their parents hit them’ – which may not be the message the teacher intends to send, but seems to be very consistently what the kids hear, is active sabotage of parenting. Those eight year olds pass the message on to their six year old siblings, who pass it on to their playmates …

    Parents and teachers are the ones who are managing children hands on. Both need the authority to discipline in meaningful ways. But social engineering has sabotaged raising children, period. We need to take our kids back.

    Stephen King had an interesting personal story about poison ivy. When he was 12, he had to go to the bathroom in the woods and wiped himself with poison ivy. He wound up in the hospital. My brother and I, from the age of two, always knew to use the large oak leaves on the ground that were mostly dry, but not too much so. As we became older what leaves to use became less of a concern as we weren’t eating enough food to generate waste.

    I’ve been saying the same thing but, I didn’t want to sound like a broken record. And they smart mouth their teacher, too. If they lived in the 50’s like me…..oooooo!

    Had a Pastor who was going to spank his daughter. She said “I can call the cops on you.” His reply " Start dialing!"

    Kids do need protection from abuse, but nature gave them padded buttocks with no organs or bones to be damaged so they could be disciplined (gently).
