There's a little boy in my building who has the potential to be another Bart Simpson. He's only three but talks about people while laughing at them, disobedient and it seems to get worse. I just found out that his father (the person who doesn't allow him to act up) left The House, leaving his mom and baby brother. Back in my day (1970-80s), it was nothing for a kid to get a hand to the rear. It had nothing to do with race, income or social standing. Now, public discipline seems to have gone the way of the cassette tape.
