I was watching this on the news this morning. They showed a father of one the kids coming to apologizefor his childs behavior. Really???
If that was my child, I would of drug him over to her house by his hair after he got a sore bum and he would apologize. He should know better than to disrespect an elder. And I would be taking another look at my parenting skills.
Of course this comes from a gal who doesn't have children...tee he.

I have a nephew (hes horrible) who from the age of 3 would call people fat, b*tch, ect. He'd walk up and say "your a fat b*tch I hate you" and all his parents/grand parents/other adults would do is say "hes only 3..." which turned into 4, 5, 6 and he's still at it. He's a kid in the making to be one of those brats and there is nobody to blame but the adults who have done nothing to mould him into a well behaved child. It went so far that one day, after being cursed at and having a show thrown at him; my husband grabbed the kid by nis neck, dragged him into a different room where his father/grand mother were and told the father to sort the kid out. He was then told to stop annoying the child!
My 5 year old came home from her first day of school to tell me one of the kids as fat. We have since had numerous conversations about feelings, being nice and what you can and can not say to people. I didnt send her in to play videogames and assume she would grow out of it. Her teacher has since told me what a pleasant kid she is and how she is nice to all of the other kids, even the one who has bullied her.
I hope these parents get a wake up call, a 30 min conversation over dinner every evening to find out what is going on in you child's life is all it takes.
