  1. It’s about time, thought those who need to listen – parents – are the least likely. With both parents working and being able to spend so little time with their kids, they try to make up for it by being their kids friends and not their parents.

    Another area that has to be addressed is every little girl wanting to be a princess and parents giving into every whim – they’re ruining an entire generation.

    I have to say wintery, you’ve had some great posts today.
