"'I've had parents fuss about a student having an hour-and-a-half detention,' he said. 'It's not popular for there to be real consequences anymore.' "

Well, of course! We're down to a tight schedule! Ballet lessons, soccer practice, karate, and piano! Groceries, dry-cleaning, manicures and haircuts! Everything is timed down to the milli-second. You want to throw that into complete disarray for a little character-building and consequences!?!

I do not have time to have my entire schedule thrown off so that you can teach my little darling some ridiculous things like respect, compassion, and personal responsibility.

Honestly, can't you see that I'm creating a future business leader here, and possibly a president?
