    Are today's kids spoiled?

    Parents, more and more, don't say 'no' or discipline their kids at a very young age, so they become spoiled little monsters as teenagers.

    I watched my sister raise her child with absolutely no discipline, manners and never said no. They were terrified of her outbursts. At 23 now, she's been arrested twice for road rage, agg battery, and a few other felonies. Her parents paid a fortune for her bond and when I asked my sister, "I bet you wished you had raised her different, she said no. I don't think all of today's children are raised to be brats but there's far more of it than the preceding decades. What's the cause(s)?

    Parents say their 14-year-old son is addicted to video games, plays up to 17 hours a day, and runs their household by bullying and terrorizing them. See some of his outbursts.

    Spare the rod, spoil the child.
    We walk by faith, not by sight.

    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    It's not like kids have a good example today in the nation's top representative. Most parents usher children out of the room if he's on TV. If they behaved like him, they'd be suspended all the time.

    Perhaps the larger concern here is "wtf happened to Trump's generation?"

    IMOHO, I think kids actually want boundaries, but also want to push them.
    They need to understand from a very early age, that there are consequences to their actions and choices.
    Parents need to agree ahead of time what is acceptable behavior and stick to it.

    I've raised mine not to be a spoiled, petulant, temper tantrum throwing, lying child like the current President Trump. Perhaps Trump's parents spoiled him too much.

    There are a lot of different cultural pressures on all of us- parents & kids - too.

    Might be a factor in ways also.

    I resemble that remark!
    At some level it is OK for grandparents to spoil the grand kids,
    but the boundaries of what is acceptable behavior needs to remain.
    A example might be the 5 year old grand son, is not allowed to strike ether of his two year old sisters, for any reason.
    Even if they hit him, he cannot hit them back!
