Go ahead. Make my day. Tell me that my fellow parents and I are raising an army of coddled sociopaths with our unique blend of being too nice to our kids and treating the rest of the world with utter disregard. I dare you. "Kids these days" has been repeated by everyone over the age 15 since the dawn of recorded history. They grow up so fast. The generation of kids you're railing against now will be saying the same thing before you know it. Then, and only then, will I want to smack them. But I won't, because I was raised to believe that smacking other people is not my right.
