One doesn’t have to look very far, given current circumstances throughout the world, to see that in an enormous number of countries, schools suffer from erratic behaviour of student.  There is a school of thought with contends that this is as a result of the fact that parents provide kids with all they want and fail to educate them about appropriate behaviour. To my way of thinking, I have to agree wholeheartedly that this is the case.

To begin with, there is a plethora of reasons why spoiled kids learn to behave badly. Chief among these is that the average size of families these days is considerably smaller then was the case in days gone by. Accordingly, one child is now given what three kids have had to share in the past.

In my personal experience, my mother was extremely strict with my siblings and myself when we were out doing the food shopping. I would sometimes ask her to buy a toy or a sweet. If she refused, I started crying or shouting. She responded by punishing me. I didn’t like it at that time, but I understood later that she was teaching me invaluable lesson in appropriate conduct.

The state of affairs relating to this issue in my country, Australia, is very typical at the way things are elsewhere in the world. It is not doubt a significant problem, but finding effective solution is no easy matter.

At the end of the day, I can’t agree strongly enough that misguided behaviour by caretakers toward children leads to serious conduct problems, both in school and in later life. If parents thought twice before buying their kids everything they asked for, the crisis facing schools would be non-existent.
