these days parents are more focussed on earning the extra buck to provide for the children that they neglect in the process. it is but natural for children to rebel if they do not get the attention that they deserve. of course giving in too much will also have the same effect, given that they are in a society which prides itself on the haves and ignores the have-nots.

Today Indian families have shrunk to being nucleus ones. As a result parents, especially dads, have become more visible to kids removing their fears. This is compounded with the fact that kids see their parents fighting most of the time and hence their weakness (of all kinds) is fully exposed to the children. This lessens the respect (which mostly comes from fear) in the eyes of the kids. Moreover, todays kids are much exposed to outside world through TV, internet and general awareness. All these factors combine together to make parents vulnerable to kids behaviour and make them rebellious.

Because most of the parents in India are completely away from the sacred Hindu culture that explains more of human values than the religious tenets. Indians always appreciate the foreign culture , not the mother country's culture. Look how children and even the students are behaving in the so called advanced countries like the US. There is no surprising if Indian children are influenced by such trends .

Children are not as rebellious as they were may be in 1980's. Now they are very studious and want to build up a career. They just sit in front of computer and seldom go out.there are less no of troublesome teens.Childeren haave rreally lost their individuality and crave for more luxury.

Because they are the products of our home. They reflect the values and attitudes that we practice. Because we have become parents for the first time and see children from parents' perspective. Children were ALWAYS rebellious. And they will always be. Recall your own rebellion against the 'preachings' of your own parents. Perhaps then parents were a little more strict or hierarchy was practised more rigidly. But you did rebel in many ways, small and big, silently and not-so-silently. Children rebel because they have a mind of their own but parents/elders don't recognise it and that's the beginning of rebellion

The word "rebellious" is often misinterpreted. Being rebellious is very different from being arrogant and throwing tantrums at one's parents. If chlidren today are rebellious, it is because of the mounting pressure to excel in whatever task they undertake.

Nowadays both parents and childrens are having having heavy work load. most of the parents are daily returened to home at late time, after that they want to prepare dinner and also prepare for next day arrangements. In these mean time they are not having time to help their children to study.So they put their children in to tuition. For children ,in their place also,that tuition teacher is very strick.Every day they have to face tests in school time and also tuition time. They must perform well,compare with other students.So , they have to work hard,wihout the help of parents and with out having proper sleep.They going to bed at late night.Becoz,their teachers siimply giving homework even for history and geography also. They just copy the book material into note.These things all are waste of time. They gave the homework based on improving knowledge.But, just copy the materials from book into note means , what is the use of that? For that only they take minimum 2-3 hours , after that , ...more
