Why Modern-Day Parenting Is in Crisis


"5 Reasons Modern-Day Parenting Is in Crisis, According to a British Nanny" is an article written by Emma Jenner that I've just recently read which identifies 5 reasons why modern-day parents could be raising children who might grow up as self-centered, spoiled, selfish, and rude adults. The five reasons as described by the author are:

 1. We always want to please our children. Parents especially us, moms, always want to please our children, we always want to give what they want.
2. We don't discipline our children. The author is saying that children nowadays lack discipline because we do not do our part to discipline them.
3. People in the community don't care as much anymore.
4. We are teaching kids not to be patient.
5. Some parents forget that they have their own needs to meet, too.
