As a parent there always comes a time when you find yourself resorting to saying something like "because I said so" or "or else".
This usually works when your kids are little but it loses it's effectiveness as they grow older.
I'm probably showing my age, because they say one sure fire way to sound older is to talk about how disrespectful society's youth have become. But honestly, in today's society it is not just the youth... it's prevalent across the board. People just don't seem to give a shit about a lot anymore.
I don't know if media has desensitized us or if basic values have just become lax, but I am sometimes amazed at what is on tv. (If you are over 50 you probably know what I mean). Trust me, I am no prude, but some of what I see on tv is so over the top that I find it amazing that it is even allowed on tv.
