Rude kids

The following blog links a NY times article but then points out, as I have previously, that there isn't some kind of legitimate excuse for rude kids. The fact is that rude adults make rude kids, and the whole sense of entitlement with which so many of us walk through life creates this sense of entitlement in children. They don't respect strangers, and they think their kids should walk all over you too....

"The problem that I see with this theory? There are a lot of plainly rude parents out there raising rude kids. It’s not always about attention to the kids or overindulging. It’s about how the adults who are parents treat others in the presence of their children.

Teaching your kids to pick up their clothes and make polite conversation is fine, but if they don’t see US doing it, why should they?"
