Here we go again about John Rosemond’s column. The people objecting to his column are probably the same ones who should consider what he has to say.
If today’s parenting does not need to be improved, what do you say about today’s classrooms with such severe disruptions by children that classrooms have to be evacuated? Teachers are crying out for help and even leaving the profession due to such discipline issues. Teachers bemoan the fact that administrators' hands are tied. Even the parents of the disruptive children blame the teachers for their children’s behavior in many cases.
Not all children come to school with serious behavior problems, that’s a given. However, out of which homes do you think problematic children come from? Dr. Rosemond is right to call out the dysfunctional parenting of today’s parents. Most parents do a fantastic job; however, many do not and should consider what Dr. Rosemond has to say.
If you can't stand Dr. Rosemond’s column, don't read it.
