My wife, Susan works as a counselor in a middle school where she sometimes observes parents who are constantly making excuses for their child’s behavior. They’re arguing with the Vice Principal that it’s the teacher’s fault and the other kid’s fault and besides that the room’s too hot and the moon is full and so on and so forth.

These parents think they are showing LOVE for their child, but the fact is that when a child’s parents have protected them from consequences all through elementary school … by the time they get to Middle School their behavior is bordering on criminal.

Susan feels like telling them, “Hey, do you want little precious to get In School Suspension now or would you rather have him in JAIL five years from now … because that’s where he’s heading if he doesn’t get some discipline soon!”
