This is typical lazy parenting imo, the child is healthy so why bother trying to enrich their minds. I have upheld for a long time now that people should earn the right to be a parent because so many parents just can't be bothered to interact with their kids. If you can't take the time to talk to your kids then why have you got them?

For some, at both ends of the social scale, having children is just something you do along the way. The middle classes pop out a couple then ditch them onto nannies for the rest of their childhood and the lower end breed them to maximize benefit claims.
In general in life there seems to be a distinct lack of interaction between parent and child, as you say Lily. So so many distractions, there's a horrible selfishness about it. There're a raft of folk too thick to teach their kids much anyway and they're too busy down the pub, or on the Playstation, to be bothered.

I think it's a case of too many people wanting babies but not children.......

I heard a dad say to his about 8yr old son 'you knobhead' and I heard the mother say (this was when the young child was struggling to climb into the 4x4) 'are you fucking thick or what'

I hate to hear this sort of thing, is it abuse do you think?

It’s not very nice Ty but I don’t think you could go as far to call it abuse, of course this does depend on your definition of abuse. They’re definitely teaching their children terrible habits and language but that’s not to say they don’t shower them with love most of the time Dunno

There's no consitency in that way of life. Loving one minute, when the mood takes the parent and utterly dismissive, nasty, and rough the next. I think that it actually is self indulgent and abusive. It will drag another generation up in their mirror image. Standards are in the gutter for a huge amount of children.

..and whats with the pitch of everything! loud and screechy, unaware or uncaring of everyone around Rolling Eyes

I don’t disagree Ty but I just don’t think you can judge the family make up based on one encounter. Parenting isn’t an easy thing to get right and surely you’ll cock it up along the way. Those parents might have got into the car and both apologised for being arseholes. Granted it’s probably not likely but it might have happened.

That 'snapshot' point is a good one LP but actually I see and hear this family often as they're nearby to me and I suspect that thousands of people live this way. I'm completely sick of seeing folk smoking, swearing, neglecting, without a fucking care in the world! Wink - it wasn't always the case, it's a lower standards thing definately...

It is the curse of every generation to say that about the youth, they used to respect their elders, people cared more etc. It's all relative though surely?

Maybe they're always right. Relative to what LP?

To your own perspective, I was thinking. Maybe it's like why Wagon Wheels are smaller now than when you were a kid, maybe kids have always been like this but you didn't run into any of them Dunno

Same there, I'm sure parents have been good and bad for as long as they've existed, are you sure that you just don't notice it more these days?

I think some parents start the whole discipline thing too late.

Think of kids like trees. When a tree is young it's flexible & will grow pretty much anyway you want it to, but once it gets to a certain age you no longer have any choice in how it grows. The only way to change how that tree grows after a certain age is to take a chainsaw to it. So you must bend the tree when it is young.

Same with kids..... Except the chainsaw bit...... you must start teaching them from the moment they are born otherwise it'll be too late......

Give me a child till he is seven, and I will show you the man.

Yes, I agree Syl. These good messages need to be sent, proactively, from the outset. I think there is a lack of 'teaching' good, moral, right, thoughtful, positive - as if kids will just 'know'...
