Is child behavior better or worse than it was years ago?
Our world revolutionizes, and generations change as they age. The question is, is a child’s behavior better or worse than the previous years? The answer to that question depends on the kids you look at nowadays. You can always seek at the bad ones that misbehave and at the good ones that behave well. It all determines in the parents on their child’s behavior. If a parent is willing to take the time and work at being consistent to instruct his or her children starting at a small age to have moral behaviors, then there is time before they grow up to an adult. When a parent says “no,” it must mean “no.” In other words, as a parent you must get off the couch and physically stop a child from misbehaving. With the privilege of learning has come into a decline in the education system. The lack of capable teachers, the high rise in disrespect for authority, the lack of caring whether you learn or not has affected the education system. A hundred years ago the thought of a higher education was just a dream for most kids. Learning was a privilege, and still today we cast an education around as if it were an article of clothing. It is a duty for many parents and legal guardians to teach children how to behave properly. Some parents don’t have an interest in just showing their children what is good and bad for them, what to do and not what to do in life. It’s just a waste of a time for parents teaching children the right decision in life. Now in this generation a child’s behavior is much worse than it was years ago, disrespecting for authority figures. The fault lies within the parents, because if children can control and manipulate their parents as in description above, then the parent will be helpless to teach that child anything. Most of today’s parents are too busy or selfish to make an investment in training their children, being patience with their children, and most of all loving them. Those parents that are too busy in training or caring for their children, sometimes they are just afraid to make a mistake that once was made with their own parents when they were kids, so they don’t want to make the same mistake that was made by their parents. That it is why is important to start now in training their children so as when they grow up they can make the right decisions in life. The house is the first school that every child should learn with their parents. Behavior is an action or reaction to the environment or to internal thoughts and emotions. Behavioral symptoms are persistent or repetitive behaviors that are unusual, disruptive, inappropriate, or cause problems. Being aggressive, attitude, criminal behavior, defiance, drug use, hostility, inappropriate behavior, and self-harm are examples of behavioral symptoms. A high correlation amongst children’s bad behavior has become one of the biggest issue because of many saf...
