i feel it is in most developed countries...
at school u get detention or something similar for something that they would whip u for back then.
disciplining (hitting) your kid is looked down upon by a minority (maybe majority?) of people too.
some other methods are slowly disappearing too.
not that beating kids is good, but sometimes its exactly wat the kid needs to get it in their head that theyre doing something wrong.

^Beating kids is good, I wouldn't be the first to agree with that. Just don't kill the children.

^Beating isn't an appropriate word for it.

It shouldn't go further than spanking though. Using any item, such as a paddle, or whip is really inhumane and I can't see why they allowed it back then. Spanking however is okay. It hurts just enough to get the kids to think about what they've done, especially if time outs don't work on them, and it doesn't leave any bruises, or marks. I used to be spanked for what I did wrong, it wasn't the worst thing in the world, but it made me listen to my parents. Technically discipline is deffinently disapearing. Such as when people where allowed to whip children with their belts. But that's a good thing it's not allowed anymore, right?

We're slowly loosing discipline I think. But there are a lot of people that have started campaigning and things to help.

God bless Supernanny lol

it's nice to know that everyone here is God's perfect creation..........

I agree that kids in general are becoming lazier, but take a look at yourself before you complain so much about it. I know that i am lazy (although i'm not gothic, emo, gangster, etc.) and I certainly don't have as much discipline as some older people or Adults, i do know when to say no, at least!

The USA has been like this for a while, in my opinion, it's just that no one has cared up until now.

For instance, I read not more than a week ago, that Americans have continued to get fatter, and that no state has had a significant number of people lose weight as of now.


Did you hear about someone trying to enforce a law that would make all parents of obese children go to jail for neglect? It's improper parenting, but they shouldn't go to jail for it. Imagine how the kids would feel if their parents went to jail because they're overweight. I just heard over the news an idea about having a fat tax, where people who were overweight would be taxed. Yes, we have a country that has a lot of overweight people in it, but all that it wants to do is make itself a country of anorexics. Which is better?

Fat tax? that's hilarious, they wouldn't have the money to buy more food than they need.

ya... i agree with lumiina bout the fat tax thing... it is really stupid and definately would hurt the fat kids' feelings...
but then again... the US really does have to do something bout obesity.
i was in New York and Pennsylvania last week and id have to say maybe more than half the people looked overweight. maybe the obesity problem is also caused by lack of discipline?
think bout it. the kid would rather have a nice bigmac over a garden salad and the parents know that that bigmac would be his/her second one... yet they decide to pamper the kid and let him/her have the bigmac.
eventually this becomes a habit for both the kid and parents. and it all started with the parents decision to pamper their child a little too much.

One of the problems is, that other food then fastfood is in generel a lot more expensive. My american cousin always says this and thanks to my recent visit in Houston I can hardly disagree. Also the fact that you can nearly only buy white bread is part of the problem. Then raising children with certain eating behaviors etc. But for real, one of the main problem is that bio or other more healthy food is a lot more expensive.

yes it's disappearing. society (beginning with america) has glorified rebellion to a point of ignorance. I do not believe rebellion, when properly applied is an awesome and necessary item of human function. However, when used as a basis of every day life it can be destructive to growth and true individualism. True individualism plainly accepts that one is not the center of the universe and that understanding comes from humility and experience. To learn from others and grow is the essence of life. Not tearing down the walls of integrity based upon discipline.
