what is sad is that in current times, everyone is trying so hard to be politically correct, that the younger generations are suffering.
if a parent disciplines their child they are abusing them. if they don't discipline them, they are neglecting them. too many agencies stepping in and telling poeple how to raise their children. making laws that are stupid in not allowing parent to use corporal punishment to discipline their children.
the result is now we have many teenagers that defy authority and have little to no respect for their elders or their parents. i see quite often pre-teens and teenagers speaking very unrespectfully to their parents and it appalls me at the attitude and the behaviour of them.
