Yup. If you never teach your child how to act, which behavior is inapropriate, immoral, or just flat out illegal, how are they to learn?

Now we got kids flipping the bird and telling judges "F you", among other bad behavior. Story here: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/50716431 That kid got 30 days for contempt (can we hire this judge for a month to clean up Athens?).

Parents. Teach your child what respectable behavior is. Both you and they will fare much better in society and they'll thank you for the education you gave them, and maybe they'll understand that you loved them when you diciplined them.
