What happened to the days when kids could just be kids? Boys could do silly mischeivious boy stuff without it being a crime? I hate the world my kids are growing up in, they are going to be punished every time they don't behave like perfect little robots. I remember the good old days when teachers had more authority to handle kids without going to extreme measures. If we got caught out late on a saturday night(just doin what kids do)we got lectured and sent home. Nobody got arrested. At 15, my older best friend thought it would be a great idea to teach me how to drive. Not so much, i hit a security gaurd car in the mall parking lot. The lecture i got from my dad and subsequent grounding was far worse than any punishment i could have gotten. Maybe it is just me, I grew up in the south in a fairly small town and kids were allowed to be kids. People didn't make such a fuss over the little things. So I'm just curious, do any of you ladies wish our kids had a little more room to just be "kids" too?
