(Damn, can't edit the title)

Now, I'm a little alien to children. I've not worked with kids or been close to kids. Because I HATE all of them. I know the difference between good and bad kids, but still... I hate things that make loud high pitched noises. (yet, I love anime girls?), and I can't stand the sight of kids. They make me anxious, angry, and just overall disgusted.

But these are the four reasons I come up with to why some kids are bad or good?

1. Kids are born amoral, and are taught to be good
Amoral people live for one thing and one thing only, self-interest. Think of a serial killer as evil, and a hitman as amoral. One does bad for bad's sake, the other does good or bad based on what benefits them. That's how kids are. There are only 2 reasons kids DON'T bully.
a. Taught that bullying is bad, and develops empathy/morality
b. The other kids don't like bullying, so the kid won't gain anything from bullying.
Children need to be taught empathy and morality, because inherently, nature makes them selfish.

2. Kids are born good, but society makes them bad
Inherently, kids are all caring, kind, and just. However, bad parenting, peer-pressure, religion, and other external factors make them bad.

3. Kids are born with varying levels of empathy
Every brain is different. Pet scans on sociopaths show differences in brain structure. Perhaps different people are born with different levels of empathy and different levels of judgement. From that sense, some children are just born uncaring and apathetic, while are others are born

4. Kids need bad experience to learn to empathize with others.
Ever notice how rich, spoiled children are usually the worst kids? Perhaps the only way kids can learn kindness and empathy is to face cruel treatment. After all, if a child has never faced abuse, than how will he know to care or empathize with one who has?

Because...
(ahem)
....being immature makes them completely oblivious to the needs or cares of others, leading them to pursue constant short-attention self-gratification without any other thought?



(And because every time you send them to their room so you can get five blessed moments of peace, they come back and do the same darn thing again because they hadn't figured it out yet?)

I guess... The problem is that children are cold, uncaring little scoundrels. You need to get the belt and whip some right and wrong into it. The only thing children know, respect, or care about is negative reinforcement. At this point in their lives, nothing matters but themselves, and the feelings and suffering of others is irrelevant to them.

I'd have no problem if they'd just shut up and sit down more often

Oh, and every time you tell them to their face that they were the ones doing wrong, they think you're talking about someone else, because in their imaginary world, they're blameless.

(Okay, somebody else take over here; I'm guessing we're going to go the whole darn thread, and he's either never going to catch the sarcastic irony flying over his head, or he's going to make a big obnoxious vaudeville act of pretending not to, so he can keep the thread hobbling along on life-support.
Experienced money would go on the latter, as no human could be that dense and live.)

I'm sorry, I didn't see you were being sarcastic.
Since I agreed with what you said. That described children perfectly.
They're the most selfish, careless, unsympathetic creatures alive.

Kids will push each other to suicide and laugh after it's done.
Kids will make faces at you, if you're on the ground having a heart attack.
They're cold.

I believe that when parents treat their kids like prodigies then the kids end up thinking they're better than everyone, then they end up getting bullied when they go to school. With my experience with kids like that its semi true to me.

People are inherently selfish and I don't think kids are an exception to that rule. Sure, they can be caring and selfless sometimes but I attribute that to a lack of worldly experience and to the tendency of kids to be more naive than adults. Kids are capable of extreme cruelty as well as kindness.

I'm sure there are also individual factors such as upbringing, quality of parenting, personality, etc. involved as well.

Although I'm inclined to agree that bad experiences can help a person better empathize with others, I don't think they are strictly necessary for a person to empathize with others. Personal experience allows for a greater depth of understanding of the suffering of others but this doesn't mean that a person without specific experiences will be incapable of feeling bad for others. Sometimes, bad experiences can make a person more guarded and more selfish rather than more empathetic as well.

That was me as a kid, and that's why I hold resentment against my own mom to this day

Your statement "being immature makes them completely oblivious to the needs or cares of others, leading them to pursue constant short-attention self-gratification without any other thought? " was sarcastic?

That just sounded like common sense
I thought when you kept saying "ahem" you meant "duh" as if it's just basic knowledge

Well, for those with a longer history with Sil on the group, perhaps it was my fault for taking the high road of bitter sarcasm with the ol' vaudeville ham, and not spelling it out more directly to him, like "HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO F***IN' BAN YOU????"

Admittedly, sometimes the less diplomatic approach does get more effective results in the short run.

Well, I don't care to bother with your big words and shit... if you have a problem just say it.

Good and bad are subjective. The problem lies in how you view things.
