In support of the "suck-it-up" paradigm of parenting

The term "discipline deficit disorder", used in this star article actually made me grin - as people always think I'm crazy when I suggest that kids should be expected to act like human beings and not be handed everything they want or be so over protected that they don't learn to cope with hardship.

As a former teacher, my opinion is usually considered suspect. Don't all teachers think that kids need more discipline? Don't worry - all these undisciplined kids will sue their parents for spoiling them, like as not in our society.

Anywho, enough tounge and check for me for now.

When I saw what post you were commenting on from my blog - I had a sudden panic that I'd caused offense to all parents.

Glad you don't think I'm crazy and a grouchy old meanie :P
