Cecilie Berry on Raising Children

Commentator Cecilie Berry blames parents for the bad behavior of today's children. Parents, she says, don't speak up enough when they see other people's kids acting up. Parents are more interested in high achieving children than children who behave. Grownups used to be a "united front" who helped each other raise kids. Now things are more fragmented, and everyone, she says, suffers as a result.
