    In my experience, discipline of children takes years to sink in. Some don't understand the efforts of the parent until they are grown and start raising their own children.
    This one third your article talks about is a problem. Short sited defeatists...probably liberals.

    One of the major reasons I don't enjoy going out to restaurants anymore, is bad behaving children. Parents letting them run around with NO CONTROL, and worst, they think its cute.

    Let me put them wise, it ain't CUTE, its rude, and bothersome.

    And this type of behavior happens EVERYWHERE in public, grocery stores, department stores, at malls, upscale restaurants.

    I have seven grandchildren, they know how to behave in public.

    Worst yet, the parent that has let the child run amok for twenty minutes, and the moment it shows back up to the parents side acting out, that parent beats the living shit out of it, another good reason to issue "parent license".

    After reading the article I think your title is a little misleading. The 1/3 of parents said they didnt think their type of discipline worked not that they were not disciplining their children.

    I have 4 children and each one of them handles discipline differently, so my wife and I have to change how we correct each of our children. Where one will respond to a stern word another only responds to time-out. Everyone is different and you have to find what works best for you and your children..

    Bottom line is if we are going to have children then we need to teach them, and the key word is teaching them through doing it over and over how to behave. Also one simple way of dealing with over active children is the diet---->less sugar makes a big difference. And lastly you can't be a parent and a friend because you'll end up on the short end of the stick. That is a fact kids are selfish and want is now and you have to make a stand. And yes each child will respond to disipline in different manners and digest it differently but parent have to make efforts. I can say being a step-father has had it's fair amount of curve balls. I guess the generations from the 50~70's have been beaten and treated really bad because kids today are out of frigging control.
