momof4,

If everyone would lighten up a little, and let people be, it would make life more enjoyable.

Rather, it would make life a lot more enjoyable if people like you would respect the rules rather than telling everybody else that it's okay to ignore the rules if you don't want to follow them.

The hallmark of children who get into trouble as teens is parents who (1) think that rules don't really matter and (2) excuse their children's misdeeds -- and if you don't believe me, ask the principals or headmasters at your children's schools, or your local police chief, or anybody else who is responsible for maintaining order in society. I'll give pretty good odds that your children are in constant trouble with authorities, especially if they are of middle school or high school age.

Norm.
