It’s the Holiday Season which means there are all kinds of events.
Parties, programs, church events, trips to the mall, and concerts to name just a few.
This also means one thing.
There will be loud wild obnoxious children running amok.
Why is this?
When did it become acceptable for parents to allow their kids complete and total freedom in public?
What happened to parents dropping "The Look" on their children from 40 yards away?
Where did the days of my youth go when kids were to be seen and not heard?
Who decided it was okay for school-aged children to run up and down aisles screaming and fighting?
What happened to common sense parental supervision?
Lastly, what happened to parents giving other adults permission to discipline their children if they saw or heard them get out of line?
Individual rights and freedoms are certainly important, but so is respect for the group.
Any chance there is a correlation between the volume level of children and society’s decision that it is inappropriate to ever spank them?
