      I agree with the statement that all kids now, in the future, and in the past (teens) have acted out and will continue to do so in some fashion. I disagree with the idea that its not moral degrade. I think that as time has gone by and through generations, the acting out has gotten much more degrading.

      Just the same as what was unacceptable 50 years ago, is easily and widely acceptable now (take for instance showing skin on television, go from I love lucy, to genie, and then to hip hop music videos. The envelope is constantly being pushed, but the moral degrade is widely acknowledged).

      At that age, kids consider
      it “cool” to cuss, and while most will watch their mouths around their
      parents, they are stil more likely to say things around friends and
      others that they will not say around their parents.

      if he’s willing to say unnacceptable things around you, then he’s
      definintly saying them around other people.

      i agree with the original sentiment of the conversation, that people
      need to learn to watch what they say around others, and just in

      but parents are not always to blame for what the teen’s say.
      in most cases, it’s a product of their social upbringing, rather than
      their family upbringing.

      as for guns, i don’t allow our children to play with them, but i make
      sure that the
      children are aware that not everyone feels the same way.
      snaping at a parent, or feeling they are bad parents because they allow
      a child to play with toy guns isn’t the best way to deal with it.

      the child in the store picked up a toy gun.

      the parent may not have
      even been aware of it. that isn’t so much a moral degrade as different
      social standards. children have played with toy guns since the
      invention of the real gun.

      it’s only been in recent years that many
      parents find it unacceptable.

      swearing is also not anything new to this new generation, nor is it
      something that will ever go away. just as teens today test their
      limits, teens from 10 years ago, 20 years ago, even 30 or 40 years ago
      tested their limits as well. And when your children are teens, they’ll
      test their limits, too.

      As parents, we do our best to make sure our children are safe,
      protected, and raised to our standards.

      ignorance at it’s finest,
      though, to expect that children and teenagers left to their own devices
      are going to do things that we think we’ve taught them not to do.

      Not all teens act out in the same manner, but all teens will test their
      parental limits to a degree.

      It might not be swearing- it could be
      smoking, skipping school, eating foods they shouldn’t, skipping out on
      homework, calling in to work, staying out past curfew, drinking, even
      doing drugs.

      So, as to whether I think there is a moral degrade, I suppose my answer
      would be that there is a general lack of respect towards people, but
      that morally, teens are acting out as they always have.

      It’s maybe a
      bit more prevalent in how they do it these days, but I was a teen 15
      years ago, and it isn’t that different from what I remember. They just
      are more likely o do it in front of adults than before.
