I really feel for teachers and other school officials. They have no authority and are stuck with these kids running the schools. Jill once said to me, I hate that teacher, I don't have to do what he says and he can't make me.

After she got through crying we had a nice talk about respect for authority figures.

I'm sick of all the physcho-babble about self esteem...blah, blah, blah, yaddah yaddah yaddah.

Use positive reinforcment. Spanking lowers the self esteem.

Self esteem is highly over-rated if you ask me.

Respect for ones self is what you get from being honorable, honest, decent. Kids today are so busy running around wild that they wouldn't know self-esteem if it ran up and bit them in the but.

Honestly though, most people I know have gone back to the old school methods. Spare the rod, spoil the child. Maybe there's hope for the generation after this one.
