Our society as a whole has degenerated into a self-absorbed,
superficial, secular culture where ideals, principles, morals,
scruples and integrity have no value. 20 years ago, children
would not have even dared to try the crap they do in school now,
because they have parents who over indulge them and do anything
to protect their 'darlings.' When I meet the parents of my
students who are the biggest pains in the butt, I can see why
those kids are the way they are. Either the kid rules the
parent, OR the acorn didn't drop far from the oak.
I can't wait to retire. I've had enough.
