Yes,do agree with Ashish.They hardly obey their parents, are into their own world. Even though parents spend time with them, they have their own opinions n this I have seen mostly in all the kids.The scene is no different in Indian kids who are born in India or abroad.I think this topic is really big to discuss. Different scenarios to be taken into count.The environment&parents play an important role.However I do agree that parents have very less time to focus since both of them are working.

This is all because nowadays parents are not bothered about their children. They buy the children expensive gadgets hoping it will keep them happy. Whenever I go to someone' s house, most of the time, the children do not even come out to wish the guests. They are busy playing video games or something similar in their room.

Subject:  Parents should try
I think it depends on the parents to a large extent. We do not want to take the trouble of trying to get through to the child. I know of so many parents who would much rather let their children be than take time to talk to them. The parents themselves are busy and do not have time for the child.

You are assuming that the kids will obey whatever you say. This is not true. Have you ever tried asking a twelve year old to go outside and buy something for the home? Ninety nine times out of hundred they will refuse to listen to you. Good luck with getting them to spend ' quality time'

RE:Teen Aggression
I agree. Children in their teens are indeed stubborn and disrespect their parents. However, I feel that the best way to deal with this is to equip them with the understanding of what is right and what is wrong and leave them to decide what to do. Usually if you trust them, they will do the right thing. But if you try to force them, they will revolt and do the wrong thing.... - Ana [View Message]
