Back chatting to Adults is Very Wrong

With most exams over or almost over, we thought it would be a good idea to talk about issues that we assume our children should know better. Back chatting is becoming very common among teenagers and is the fastest route to problems in schools. To back chat is to make rude or cheeky remarks in reply to someone in authority. Back chatters do not do themselves any favours and wonder what the big deal is when they argue back. We as parents need to continue to emphasis to our children that it is not about being right or wrong in that exact moment. There is a time to speak and a time to be quiet. Children MUST be taught to be respectful to their teachers in schools and to anyone in authority.

Let us NOT assume that our children should know this automatically, we MUST tell them and continue to tell them. The earlier they get it, the better and more fulfilling they will be as adults.
