    I believe if children were raised to respect their elders and authority stuff like this wouldn’t be happening as much. When they took the strap out of school and the parents ability to spank their kids, they took the fear and respect with it. When I went to school kids rarely told teachers to F off because they feared getting the strap and the call home to their parents, nowadays it is almost a daily occurrence because they get a suspension and get to go home and play video games….then we end up with disrespectful little punks like this…Thank goodness there are some parents out there that are still raising respectful kids, hats off to those parents.
