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.

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.

Excellent.

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.

I’ve never noticed Mexican parents disciplining their children, managing their behavior, spanking them and CERTAINLY never noticed them behaving,

That look in my dad's eyes, fixated on me as he unbuckles his belt...

Because of him I have always stayed on the right side of the law.

The mexican children may be well behaved in Mexico. But, they don’t keep that behavior when they cross the border into the USA.

Like others have said, go into any store down here near the border and watch them. Screaming, hollering, crying and a general rampage is the norm. The store clerks are told not to say anything to them and yet are expected to clean up the on going mess during their shifts.

My Walmart store is a disgrace. I particularly like the parking lot that is covered by soiled, disposable diapers and trash as far as the eye can see.

Mexican kids are well behaved? Well something sure as hell happens in between infancy and adulthood because Mexican adults constitute a freakin' tsunami of staggering criminal behavior when they grow up.

That’s what a very nice Latino hairdresser told me a year ago: ‘we got spanked, and we do that to our daughter. We have no intention of raising, and will not tolerate, a mis-behaved child.’

As in every culture, there is responsible, and not responsible.

PS
Forgot to add:
Some years ago I began noticing well behaved Latino kids in restaurants, and mentioned it to our family when I did. Sometimes as I was leaving, I mentioned it quietly to a female member of the Mexican family, and they were always glowing with pride.

And one thinks one can shop at night without them running around. But NOOO - the kids are up and squalling.
Whatever happened to a reasonable bed-time?? ~ Sigh ~
ESPECIALLY on a school night???!

Down here in South Texas most of the children are feral animals who are clueless about manners or any social graces.

We can thank the welfare system for that.

I always see Mexican children at Wal-Mart, and they're generally running and yelling. You must have a better class of illegal aliens than me.

And African families. I used to work with quite a few African immigrants and it was impossible to avoid noticing how sweet, obedient, and hard-working the children were from an early age. I commented on this and one of the ladies said, “Oh, yeah, we’re African. We spank our kids.” She hit her palm lightly with the other fist a couple of times and the other parents all laughed approvingly.

Someone else added, “You Americans, you don’t hit your kids, this why you have troubles.”

I protested, “I spanked my kids.”

They answered, “Ya, you hit your kids, this why your kids are so good now, why you proud of them. We hit too, this why our kids, they work hard, they not in trouble, they stay in school or they grown up, have good jobs.”

dont assume they’re “mexican” unless you go up straight to the parents and ask.
