I would have got my butt kicked if I talked the way some of these kids do when I was young.
My dad was the local high school principal for more than 20 years; he retired about 15 years ago. He said that during that time, the biggest change was in the parents`attitude: in the beginning he could talk with them and set up a plan when a kid was misbehaving. Later on, the parents became more and more confrontational and absolutely defending their kid no matter what.

The generation with kids in their teens and younger aren't doing society any favours by indulging their children's every whim.
