My friend Lizzie sent me this article from the NYTimes Health section. A pediatrician, Dr. Perri Klass, discusses how many children are ill-mannered, their parents neglecting to inform them that the world actually does NOT revolve around them. It is unfortunate that a parent would allow their child to enter the world lacking good manners. These children become the adults who cut in line, hold the subway doors open, keeping a full train at a station for them, do not hold doors open, interrupt others, are disrespectful to waitstaff and other offenses that we have to endure day after day.
