LeeAnn of Look! A Baby Wolf! (link) has a great link to a CNN article regarding small children run amok.
In short: The rest of the World should not have to pay for your permissiveness. And, it damages society to allow certain behavior.
Personally, I don’t think beating a child to death is the answer (neither does the author of the article), but allowing children free reign doesn’t cut it.
Let’s bring back mutual respect.
