'Middle-Class Children Are Being Turned Into Spoilt 'little Buddhas'' Middle-class children are being turned into spoilt 'little Buddhas' as a rising number of parents refuse to require that they do household chores, a teachers leader has warned.

Too many pupils lack proper boundaries because over-indulgent mothers and fathers wait on them hand and foot and no longer ask them to help around the home, it was claimed.
Mary Bousted, the general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), warned of a marked decline in the number of children expected to do their share of the washing and cleaning, or work in a Saturday job. It was no surprise that pupils were so badly behaved in the classroom because children without boundaries at home resent boundaries imposed at school, she said.
Other teachers warned that standards of behaviour in schools have declined since the abolition of the cane in the mid-1980s because pupils no longer feared adult authority.
It follows the publication of research that showed a quarter of ATL members had been attacked at school in the past 12 months, with teachers regularly being pushed, scratched, punched, bitten, kicked and spat at.
Half of teachers said behaviour, particularly low-level disruption, had become worse in the past two years.
The biggest problems cited by teachers included children failing to pay attention, showing disrespect, using mobile phones in class and directing verbal abuse at adults. In many cases, staff said pupils were very aware of their rights and unafraid to challenge adult authority.
Speaking at the unions annual conference in Manchester yesterday, Ms Bousted warned that it was hard to impose proper discipline at school without the support of parents.

Another result of liberalism.
Not a problem. They’re about to experience a thousand years under the yoke of islam, which will straighten them out.
Libs don’t “discipline” their kids. Disrespectful, loud, dirty, no morals, little animals.
True, and conservatives don’t hold any higher standard for their candidates. Character counts in every area of life.
Doesn’t help that there are so many one-child families. If there’s one thing that’ll teach a kid humility and keep him from getting too full of himself, it’s his brothers and sisters.
And we all know how fond the Talib@stards are of Buddha...
This is a case of watch out what you wish for.
Parent disciplines kid. Kid goes to school and rats out parent. Bureaucrat, er, “teacher” rats parent out to other bureaucrats, aka social services, who in turn rats them out to even more bureaucrats aka cops.
Social services show up at parents house with cop in tow, and busts up the family.
And bureaucrats masquerading as teachers justify all this by claiming to be “co-parents.” (yee haa)
With me so far?
Now parents aren’t stupid. They don’t discipline the kid so as to try somehow, to keep their family out the sights of cops and snitty, sh**ty social workers who are typically young female jackboots right out of grad school who happen to know everything about how to raise YOUR kids.
Just ask them, they will tell you so.
Now we send totally undisciplined little sh*ts to school who think the world owes them.
But when the little scumbags turn on the bureaucrats masquerading as teachers, then just holy hell, why, its ALL THE FAULT OF THE PARENT for not disciplining their worthless kids!!
Make your head swim, eh?
Very well put. Scary and yet so true.
Frankly, I might spit at a lot of teachers these days.
Many are leftist goons, working diligently to create brainwashed little marxists.
The poison of liberalism that started in the Black community is spreading (has spread!) into the mainstream. And it will pull us all down.
The fruits Feminism. Men will embrace Islam because women and children are in chaos.
Too bad we gave up Christianity for that. Jesus said:
"For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light. - Matthew 11:30
This is the kind of insightful commentary I come to FR for.
This is a case of watch out what you wish for ...
>>Now we send totally undisciplined little sh*ts to school who think the world owes them.<<
Who is this ‘we’?
Geez, why is she saying this? More and more of them don’t have the money to be spoiled brats. Maybe the correct word is thugs since this seems to be popular among the youths.
We came across some seriously evil teachers that needed to be spat upon.
The amoral teaching “profession”, this is what they get in return for their effective cultural cleansing of the Judeo-Christian culture and it’s ethics and morals. They wanted the opposite and named it non-judgemental and free. Now they have it. Hope they like it.
