Being an observer for my nineteen years of life I have seen people say, act, and do various things that just doesn't make much sense to me. Sure some of things done could be considered normal, after all we are just humans and are not perfect. However, the one thing that seems to have been bothering me the most is the behavior of parents or adults. Most of us probably assume that adults and parents are supposed to be the most mature in the house hold, and yet sometimes there is a complete lack of maturity on different levels. For example some parents lie to their children. Yes I understand that in some cases it is okay to tell a lie for the sake of their own good but when done to much it really just creates this huge wall between you and your child. Thus I don't understand why parents frequently lie to their children. Not only does it make them feel like that they can't trust you, but sets a bad example for them. If I was a parent I would want to ensure that my child values and understands the virtue of honesty. I just don't understand why parents can't be honest with their children, they're not going to hate you for being honest unless you're just rude about it. Then there are the adults/parents who seem to forgotten their manners. They don't follow house rules when they visit, they dont say please or thank you, they don't ask politely for the things they want, and can just be flat out rude to their children or family. I don't understand why adults and parents do this either. How can you expect a child to mind their manners when you do not do the same? Then they get upset when their children or youths do not respect them, follow directions, or ask nicely. Shouldn't this be a two way street? Isn't there that saying "treat others how you want to be treated." that the very adults themselves try to teach their children? I don't understand why some adults don't follow the aspects they preach and expect others around them to do so. It makes no sense. I mean earlier I was playing League of Legends and my mom sent me a text "You are loud and I don't feel good so stop it". Where they hell is that please? Also I find the not feeling well to be complete and utter bullshit since she spent the entire morning at a spa getting a massage. You come home from that, and expect me to believe that you don't "feel good"? Really? So, naturally I just ignored her message and continued about me way. Of course if she had actually asked nicely I might have done what she wanted. Regardless she never treats me with care when I don't feel well so why should I do the same for her? To be the better person? Ah, I've been the better person for six years now, so I'm about fed up with following that logic. It's a two way street for me. You are nice to me and then I will be nice to you. Then there are those parents or adults that completely demean and belittle their children or youths. WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THAT!? What parent/adult in their right mind would go out of their way to publicly humiliate a child like that? It completely destroys you're child's self esteem, and then you wonder why your child completely hates your guts and wants to cut all ties with you. It just baffles me why these people do that. It's like they never left highschool. I just don't understand, and I'm sure when I am a parent myself I still wont understand. Does anyone else have any insight on this? I'm just baffled.
