ILL MANNERD YOUTH

This is the harsh reality of the future generation of this world. This is what our young youth have become: rude, disrespectful and stubborn to parents, teachers and to the whole of society. They have seemed to have adopted the slogan “I shall do as I please, no matter what you say, if you don’t budge, I’ll throw a tantrum and use my democratic right.”
 
 
Parents have brought the punishment of ill mannered children upon themselves, because they are neglecting to teach their children good manners, discipline etc, and from this negligence stems, ill mannered and rude children or as my grandparents say: hooligans. Because of this neglection young people tend to become wild and violent, because of the lack of restrictions and order in their lives. But why do parents become lenient on their children and allow them to behave in such a despicable manner? Some parents may answer:
 
 
“because we love our children therefore we allow them to do as they please. This so called love is destroying, in fact poisoning the chances of learning to grow up to be good, well mannered young people.
 It was said that the life of a child is very important; whatever they learn at this tender age becomes part of them for the rest of their lives, and will be extremely difficult to break. A child is not born mannered or with a character but looks up at the parent as a role model,
 
and as he/she grows up they character is morphed by picking up the qualities of the mother and the father.
 
Have you heard the saying ‘he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth’ most of the young people today are born with a silver spoon in his/her mouth, making them spoilt, demanding and selfish. They parents spoon fed them whatever they demanded and when they are faced with a difficulty they cannot tackle and solve this problem themselves, without the assistance of their parents.
 
 
Another important aspect which reflects very negatively on manners is the company that child keeps; he/she might be keeping friends who have bad manners, the friends manners will slowly over a time, change his/her character to match their friends unruly character and manners. Therefore it is vitally important that parents keep track of what friends that they children are interacting with on a daily bases. Negligence creeps in again and the parents do not care who their children’s friends are.
 
From the above it teaches us how important it is to discipline the young youth of today. Sadly only a few parents understand this, but when the topic of discipline comes about, mothers and father and even grannies say: Leave her alone, she is still small leave her alone.
But remember the unlimited choice comes from you, you and you only, whether you want to be a disciplined young lady or an ill mannered hooligan that everybody looks down upon. Which one do you want to be? Think about it!
