Why is it that these days we see so many children behaving as miniature tyrants? And parents behaving as slaves?
What has happened to our society?
|What are the values of these girls?|
Are they texting and bullying when we are not looking?
How would we know
unless we are victims or co-conspirators?
Standards have changed in our society and this is for the benefit of children in general. But when did we cross that invisible line? When did the adults lose their position of genuine respect and start behaving as servants rather than carers?

Will these poorly behaved children grow up to be the types who graffiti public spaces, attack innocent bystanders, abuse taxi drivers, commit assaults on family members, and become the scourge of our country?

Is the solution in public education like Jo Frost and Super Nanny? Is the solution in the hands of drug companies who market supplies of sedatives? Are we each as individuals doing enough?
