The UN came up with a charter on children’s rights to protect children exploited in various countries.
It might have been well meaning; however, government departments then started to apply the principles to everybody.
Parents could not discipline children, headmasters or teachers the same.
In general, children were no longer taught that if you misbehave you will be punished.
Even the courts have gone down the same line. So now, the children have children of their own with no sense of discipline and so it will get worse.
I fear we haven’t seen the worse of it yet.
