Within Reason

I don't mean that children should have absolutely no say in what goes on or decisions that pertain to their lives, and I don't mean that adults deserve extra attention. I simply mean that children should be taught basic human respect, and that includes respecting other people (even other children) until they are given reason not to.

Manners are important, and being respectful is kind of neglected in today's youth. I once had a kid rudely tell me to "move", instead of saying "excuse me" and I wanted to pop him in the mouth and then find his parents and pop them in the mouth as well.
