THERE’S A BRAT IN MY KITCHEN

If prime-time television is a social barometer, then we’ve become a nation of petrified parents afraid to stand up to our foul-mouthed, hyperactive, kicking and screaming children. Even if the media exaggerate the problem to grotesque proportions, giving in to children seems to be a modern disease. 8.1. __________ Let me tell you a few of my own. Recently, I sat in my back garden watching a child repeatedly spit at and kick my daughter Imogen while his mother ignored him and sipped her tea. When I mumbled that maybe she could ask him to stop, she merely said: ‘She obviously upset him. He’s very sensitive.’ On another occasion, when the same boy pushed a child, his mother rushed to his defence: ‘Oh, why does he always get the blame?’ But then I shouldn’t cast stones. I started out as a naive mother with a Penelope Leach baby book to hand. From this I took the message that if I was cuddly and loving, that would be enough. 8.2. __________ It is ironic that the country that once swore by ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’ and ‘children should be seen and not heard’ now resounds to the noise of whines and tantrums in every shopping centre. 8.3. __________ Linda Blair, a clinical psychologist, claims that they fear offending their children. ‘We want children to be our friends. But we would help them to be more independent if we stopped over-indulging them.’
Some would say the rot set in during the 1960s and 1970s, when trendy parents were reluctant to do anything as ‘heavy’ as scold their children. After detailed studies of families in the 1970s, the American psychologist, Diana Baumrind, identified three types of parent: authoritarian parents, authoritative parents and permissive parents. Suddenly, permissive parenting was seen as damaging. Children of authoritarian parents were often discontented, and mistrustful. Only authoritative parents stood out. 8.4. __________ Principles of authoritative parenting are outlined today in many books, on websites and on telephone helplines. So why are we still raising badly behaved kids?
