We need to redefine what "child" means in this country. Kids today are about 10 years more sophisticated than they were in my generation. They're physically larger, more sexually aware, more prone to violence and use language that I had never even heard when I was 12. Today we're reading about a 9-year-old assaulting his teacher for taking away his iPad in class. Our children are out of control, and we are continuing to allow it for fear that demanding any kind of discipline might bruise their little psyches.
