Brats???? I believe Criminals would be a better description.retired2000 said:years ago here in syr ny we had one of our drivers attacked in almost the same way. he was out for a little bit but went back on his route when he came back. do not know if the ever caught the brats though.
You hit the nail right on the head. It seems there aren't repurcussions for kids misbehavior like there were when I was a child. In fact, several years ago my husbands daughter came home from middle school with a "business card" that had a hotline number on it for kids to call if their parents hit them. They weren't just talking about abuse either. SO even if you want to spank your child, they can call the authorities on you. It's like giving the child power over the parent, when it should be the other way!dannyboy said:Bottom line is this, while the punishment is tough, lessons are learned. When there is no fear of punishment, what is there to lose?
