It's called a lack of common sense . The kids now a days get away with more , because both parents are working & are too busy trying to do everything for the kids . There seems to be less punishment from parents . Up here ( Canada ) you have bug brother telling us that we can't use corporal punishment , I call B.S. . Granted , I have not hit my kids nearly as often as I got it from my parents . I teach my kids that every action has a reaction & consequence good or bad .
Sorry for the rant , JMO not that it means much .
