Overheard by yours truly earlier today in a public place:
This was the interaction between a whiny 8-10 year old and her mother:
Whiny child [yelling]: Mom! Mom! Mom, you are not being a good parent right now!!!
Child's mother: I know
And we ask ourselves "what is wrong with the youth?"?? my question is "what is wrong with the parents of the youth?"??
This interaction between parent and child would have never stood a chance when I was 8-10 years old. And today I am thankful to my parents for it.
