I also strongly believe that exemplary parental control is a dying trait.
My son came home from Ulverstone Park a couple of days ago to tell me what he'd seen.
A man in a wheelchair, some sloppy fat woman and a little girl he judged to be about 8. Girl was skipping along pavement, sone and friends came along, mother screamed at child to get the **** out of the way, you dumb little ****. Mn in wheelchair screamed at little girl, saying if he wasn't in a chair he'd plant his foot ten foot up her arse to 'make himself feel better.'
Now, tell me what little chance in hell that girl has to grow up and become a kind, caring, responsible adult???
