    The first thing that comes to mind is no home training. Seriously. I know this girl, let's her son run all over her. Instead of sitting him down and explaining things to him, or punishing him, or anything, she stands in the middle of their house and screams at him. (He's 5.) He laughs and says, "Shut up, Mommy." And runs away. Let that be my son in 4 years. Hmph.

    But perhaps we no longer know what works to control a child. Most of us, when we were growing up, had regular meetings with switches, belts, and backhands. Nowadays, that's child abuse. Time outs don't work. Do they?

    Instead of wondering why children are so bad, Why don't we find out why it's hard for them to be good?

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    How can a child...which we ALL were at some point...become anything but what they see and often learn to emulate and then be blamed for it? Is there such a thing as a "bad" child or are there people who are raising or influencing children to act badly? Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater when it's the bathwater that's dirty.

    Think about it.

    This is such a mean-spirited comment!

    I'm not sure whose children you are referring to Brother Manasiac, but the one's I've had the privilege of knowing are not evil. It's unfortunate that you think so in a general way and take no regard for whose feelings may be hurt in the process.

    It's good that this is a community that values the many perspectives of its members and allows for open, yet respectful, communication, but I certainly would not like it if our youth or anyone who genuinely loves children would come here and take your words to heart. A little sensitivity would serve you well in this area.

    If we're going to throw daggers, let's throw them at well deserved targets and not make blanket remarks like this. I guess I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve at this moment and take personal offense to your comment because I've had a child and now have a grandchild and neither of them are evil.

    I sure hope that no one felt that way about you Brother Manasiac and if they did, I'm sorry.

    Peace.....

    And this makes sense?

    If this is your best "argument" to describe why you think children are "evil," then this description must also apply to everyone even as adults, including yourself. The only difference being that adults have had time to do it longer.

    I never said I was a good child, I know I caused my mother alot of stress and anguish and increased debt that could have been easliy avoided with abortion.
