Alarming increase in Spanish children abusing parents

CASES of youngsters being abusive towards their parents in Spain are increasing at an alarming rate, according to public prosecutors working in juvenile courts.

They claim many parents across Spain are losing control of children aged between 14 and 16 because they have never been set proper boundaries.

It appears girls are just as abusive and aggressive as boys.

One 16-year-old girl was returned to a detention centre days after her release because she immediately began insulting and threatening her parents.

Social workers put the increase down to a lack of parental control and agreed the patterns of abuse must be stopped before the situation worsens.

  1. Ah, so it’s not just here in the US. Parents are dropping the ball all over the world. I’m glad I just have dogs.

  2. Yes it all starts in schools.Total lack of discipline in most Spanish schools. Teachers allow kids to run riot. Sort that out and parents also tighten up, and problem will be solved.Come on teachers get your act together!
