I’ve been working at the school for years and I’ve seen a lot of tantrum- bad behaviors in some of our children. I don’t want to blame anyone, but then this kind of behavior comes from their homes. Some of the parents expect the school to take care of their kid problems. The school feed them, babysit them, and deal with their disrespect. For some parents taking care of their kids it’s our job.
This new generation of parents is afraid of discipline their own children. They don’t like to be judged as a parent and they preferred someone else doing it for them. Of course, they want us to deal with them. Some parents like to make excuses. I know we’ve some parents with two jobs and they are tired, but then we’re talking about their job as a parent. It’s frightening to think this is our future generation the ones who will be taking care of us.
Nowadays bad behaviors and tantrums are called a disorder. They pump their kids with medications and supposedly to calm them down they leave them alone. In our school they’ve a separate room only for them. They sit with a laptop, play with toys, or they take a nap.
I’m going to clarify something here, not all the parents are acting like this. I know some’s who are doing an amazing job as a parent. They work hard and their kids are wonderful children.
When I was growing up they didn’t call bad tantrum or bad behaviors a disorder. The parents would take care of the situation and not the teachers. I remember we will get grounded it for weeks with no TV, no playing outside with our friends, no desserts, and we were sent to bed early.
Now it’s my children turn to raise their own. They don’t believe in awarding bad behaviors and they don’t make excuses. If my grandchildren don’t behave, they would be grounded and they’ll going to lose their privileges. No tantrums are allowed.
To parents, I know it’s tough to discipline these days, especially when some of you had two jobs and be a single parent. However, it’s time to be responsible and show who’s the parent and who’s the child. Don’t give them more that they need and no award bad behavior. A six-year-old don’t need a cell phone as a birthday gift or expenses tennis shoes. Don’t relay in the schools to take care of the discipline of your child. Be tough when its need it and show love to your child. Talk to them and give them attention possibly that’s all what they need.
