American Parents Rank Last in Caring About Kids' Manners, Obedience

If you’re wondering why a growing number of American kids are ill-behaved and show little if any respect for authority, you can blame their parents.

Or so says an international study of parenting priorities across 26 countries.

Conducted by King’s College of London, the study examines the qualities parents value most in raising children.

In the U.S., parents rank dead last in the degree to which they value good manners and obedience in their children. And when it comes to obedience, the U.S. isn’t alone. Across many countries, obedience has increasingly taken a back seat to other qualities.

What do U.S. parents value? Imagination, hard work, independence and religious belief.
