This year i have made many new friends and have seen their families. My friends thses days dont treat their parents with respect. Not just my friends are doing it though. I have heard many other kids talking about this. It sounds like these kids are actually proud of what they are doing. When I talk to my mom she said parents dont like it when kids talk back at them or be rude. She said it makes them fell like they have raised us bad. She worries more because she thinks we act like this at school, to our teachers too! Im not saying that all kids are like this, but kids are teaching other kids to act like this to their parents. The older we get the harder it is to control our temper when we get mad but us, kids can get really rude!
