Re: Pacman suspended for 1 year...
- You are correct, of course. It's a small, vocal minority of parents
that can give the rest a bad name. You just hear it too often on the
news. A kid gets in trouble in school for instance, and instead of the
parents supporting the school, and disciplining their child, they
complain to the principal, or go to the media, or file suit because
their "good child" has been denied some privilage or other, due to
their bad behavior. Parents arrested for buying alcohol for their 16
year old's birthday party, etc.
Just seems like a disturbing trend. Maybe it's just getting more
publicity these days.
Again, sorry for the OT rant...
