American kids are brats

Judith Warner discusses why French kids are better behaved.

My grandmother and I don’t agree on many things even vaguely political. I’m a pretty hardcore liberal, and she calls Rush Limbaugh her boyfriend. She advocates law school for me because all of the commentators on Fox News are also attorneys. That probably sums up the majority of our interactions on belief systems, and points-of-view, but for once we agreed on something: American kids believe that they are entitled without working hard.
