Skip to comments.Why Mexican Children are Well Behaved (Dr. Jennifer Espinosa: The secret of La Chancla)

We go now to the middle square and Paul Lynde. Paul what is the name of the colorful things which Mexican children break on festive occasions?
I think while they are young they are well behaved....because their parents spank them.
I guess she has never been to the Children’s section of her local Walmart. We see Mexican children riding Bicycles and tricycles up and down the aisles - to the extent that the managers now have the bikes and trikes chained to the fixtures.
Toys are now screwed and tied down to the packaging to the extent that it takes an adult with a screw driver and a wire-cutter to get the toy free from the packaging. We call this Mexi-proofing.
I didn’t know they were well behaved. The sword they hold over their heads around here is La LLarona, it is their equivalent of the boogy man.
You need to put the / humor tag on this.
I thought it was serious; and based upon the violence in Mexican gangs, the behavior of children I see in the stores and malls - I thought this was a PC laden article of “El Toro poo-poo”.
The YouTube Video is pretty funny.
Traditional Mexican middle class families with good breeding still discipline their children. Some of the low-class riff-raff coming across the border now feel a sense of entitlement and no sense of community.
I have seen the same thing, and totally avoid Walmart when kids are out of school.
HEY !!! Ms Espinosa !!!
Check out my local WalMart and see how your illegal alien Mexican kids “behave” there...
Had a feeling...
I sometimes see Mexican children at Wal-Mart, usually on Saturday. I will give them generally good marks, they are far better than another group who I am not even going to name.
I think the difference might be that the Mexicans tend to be a Father and Mother while the other group is usually just Mothers with the children.
Yes there are exceptions to all.
Kinda a Spanish version of das boot?
They also have this parenting style in traditional Italian and Greek families. None of this nonsense of “Now, darling, I want you to go in the corner and think about what you’ve done.” No, it’s WHAM with the spoon or whatever else Mom has in her hand. Interestingly, the kids do not grow up to be traumatized and neurotic; they grow up to be responsible adults.
I don’t think this has anything to do with Hispanic upbringing.
There are good Hispanic families and bad. There are good and bad black and white families as well.
It is a matter of parental involvement, imho.
