So, my follow-on question is why in the heck is this so hard for people to see and/or apply? By the time you're old enough to create a child, you should be able to look back and analyze what your parents did right and wrong in raising you. Moreover, if you honestly love your kids, you'll do what's necessary to guide them into a better life than your own.
This is where I get into Americans becoming wussies. We've been continually taking away the power of the school system to push for academic performance and proper behavior, especially when the kids do have sorry *** parents. The disciplinary actions for misbehaving are a joke, especially at inner city schools. Unfortunately, this is where you have plenty of hoodlums who, IMO, need a boot camp approach to learn how to respect and be responsible. We need to quit tolerating parents not teaching this to their kids. In particular, the black community is by far the worst on average at teaching respect and responsibility to the next generation. This is where political correctness, especially the stupid automated racism accusations, need to be ignored.
