My subversive link post for the day.
"Obedient children grow into obedient adults. They're less likely to stand up for themselves, more likely to be taken advantage of. They're also capable of terrible acts, because don't take responsibility for their actions; they blame whoever told them to do it.
Yes, it's embarrassing when my kids don't immediately do what I ask of them in public. But then I think of articles like this, and I'm thankful my children are respectful, but still have minds of their own."
