Parenting with Authority
Parenting with Authority

I work at a charter school and the biggest problem I see is the parents. Kids are always kids, but parents are spoiled brats compared to kids. They want convenience, they want it their way, and they want it now. They literally want the school to raise and discipline their kids for them so they can be the fun mom that feeds them junk and lets then play video games. But you better raise their kids the way they want you to or watch out!

I also think our society has been taught to see All authority as The Man, and fear of punishment for showing any authority like disciplining your kids in public. Even on social websites, I see women apologizing for having a great idea for a craft, and using the obligatory "It may not be right for you, but it works for me" for a recipe or craft!!

At my school, children love to work, they love accomplishment, they love boundaries. It is natural to them. It is the parents who teach them otherwise.

Keep up the good fight, Dr. Laura!
