Better parenting... By Raza

Poor behavior in students seems to be the norm and is becoming an increasingly widespread problem. I think that our modern lifestyle is probably responsible for this issue. People are more conscious and have small families; with lesser children and more resources they often spoil the child, not in terms of love, affection and attention but in more material ways. Their children are allowed to have whatever they want, regardless of price and to behave as they please. There seems to be no discipline anymore or morality practiced in families. This means that the children grow up without consideration for others and without any understanding of where their standard of living comes from.
The dishonest earnings give them the chance to avail all luxuries in life, giving them the misconception that the world belongs to them. When they get to school age they have not learnt any self-control or discipline and have virtually no moral values. They have less respect for their teachers and refuse to obey school rules in the way that their parents did.
Teachers continually complain about this problem and now the time has come when serious measures should be taken to combat the situation, but I think the solution to this problem lies with the families, who could raise them to be considerate and responsible individuals, with solid moral values set by the parents and practiced by them. This would benefit the family as well as make them into better human beings.
