Make sure to call the police if you child threatens to behead you!! :)


If I was the parent, I'd make sure he wouldn't get anything for Christmas for a long, long time. Just another example of how lazy many kids are these days. And the article didn't even say what the present was! :rolleyes:

He said that all would have been well if she had just bought him the correct present.
What is up with kids these days?! :eek: :mad: I'm kinda curious as to what the "correct" present was....

This is very sad. Where is the father in this situation. Parents, for some reason allow children to have their way all the time. A child needs discipline. I remember that as a child, I was happy to get what I received. Sure I was disappointed sometimes. A child just didn't talk back to a parent. Its the child that would be led to the wood shed in that case. That teenager doesn't appear to be in for a very bright future. If someone doesn't intervene to turn him around, he is looking at a life in prison.

What has happened to this generation(I am one of them sadly)? I would never do this to my mom. When I get stuff I thank my mom and dad so much that they say stop saying thank you. Kids are getting spoiled. Parents are getting crazier. A classmate/friend of mine says his mom would rather get him a BB gun(which he has) than a paintball gun. She believes that since paintball guns are designed for shootong people that he would. What? The BB gun isn't designed for shooting at people?

On the sarcastic side, it would be funny if the right gift was a 20 GB iPod and the mom got him a 20 GB Dell Dj.

Ya... I read the article and that's exactly what I was thinking..."what is this mysterious present and what did he end up getting?"

This kid needs a good swift kick in the ass and get sent to juvy for a while.

It reminds me of this story.

God, I can't even think of the mental problems you must have to do something like this. I am 26 and was no saint by any strecth but this stuff is just out there!

you know kids are not all like this. People shouldn't judge kids because of one crazy kid treatens to kill his mother. Thats just one kid of billions.... and besides those types of kids should be locked up.

And even at 13, I remember not knowing what I was getting...something wrong here...

That might justify his terrible actions. Heck, I'd do worse if that was my gift.

This kid deserves to spend Christmas in jail. He'll learn the prison meaning for "stocking stuffer" when he drops the soap in the shower. That's one gift he wont like. :D

When I was 13, there wasn't all the commercials and peer pressure to want all that much. I didn't know what I was getting either.

Here is another approach by parents, when the children won't help. The parents went on strike.

hmmm, seems like parents will do anything to not have to raise their children...

does anyone talk with their kids anymore; i mean, really talk to them? if you don't do it when they're young... you'll never get them back.

my 8yo daughter just turned eight... i have no fears of her turning into a teenager. no need for me to go on strike... no reason for her to cut my arms off.

at least i don't think so... :eek:


peace.

I agree. I am happy when I look at my nieces and nephews and see that my brother and sister are raising them in very much the way we were raised, but they are in sharp contrast to a lot of the kids I see today. They seem to be completely out of control. Providing structure and discipline to a child's life is hard work, and too many today just don't want to do it.

He's a stupid brat, that's all. 99% of kids (at least who I know) would NEVER do anything like that. He's embarrased me and all of my friends, because it now seems that some people here think all kids my age are like that! :eek:

By no means do I believe it is ok for a 13 year old kid to threaten his mother, but hitting a child only teaches him/her that violence is an acceptable form of communication.

I hear you, but I'm willing to bet many (if not most) of us here who are older than say, 25-30, had parents who did not rule out corporal punishment entirely while we were raised, yet we do not resort to violence as a form of communication. While it would be incorrect to say that every child needs to be spanked now and then, it would be just as incorrect to say that no child requires it as an option. Of course, in this particular case (a 13 year old threatening violence because he did not get his way) it's probably too late anyway. I'm afraid he's probably headed for some protracted evaluations by mental health workers . . .
