27. My daughter struggles so much
I mean, we've tried to give her a healthy balance between respect for authority and using her own mind. TOO much blind obedience to authority makes kids who are prone to abuse, etc. Too little does cause problems for the kids as far as getting along in a civilized society.

She's probably too young for it to occur to her to walk out. But I can tell you she was in one of the pissiest moods I've ever seen her in after having to listen to that hag slobber over bush all day. Poor kid.

I took her for an ice cream, by the way! :-)
