I remember when teachers where allowed to have almost autonymous control of their classrooms which included paddling if necessary. And, the teachers that exercised that control usually turned out the best students and are the teachers remembered years later.

I miss the good old days when kids didn't have any more rights than their parents gave them. I remember when kids were taught to yes sir and yes maam. I remember when kids had to stay home during the school week and do homework. I remember when kids didn't have their own transportation but had to ask Dad to borrow the car on Saturday night. I remember the time when parents knew all day every day where you were, what you were doing, and with whom you were doing it. I remember the days when boys were expected to have neatly trimmed hair and girls had to wear dresses no shorter than about 1 inch below the knees. I remember the time when the most harsh word heard on tv was gosh or darn. I remember the time when pregnant teenagers was something to hide and be ashamed of and not somehing 'cool'. I remember the time when the epitome of being a bad boy was sneaking out a beer and maybe smoking a cigarette. I remember the time when parents were helpful and had teachers backs. I remember the time when backtalking to a teacher got you about three licks with a well worn board at school and grounded for a month at home and probably a second whipping. I remember a time when this was a civilized country where kids were taught to be adults and adults used common sense to conduct their personal and family lives. I remember the time when people like Paris Hilton and Cindy Lohan would have been called names and kept off the public airways. I remember a time when a President wasn't on the TV more often than the 6 o'clock weatherman. I remeber a time when the First Lady didn't say her country was a mean country.

Those days are gone and I think forever. That's too bad cause this society was a much better place in which to grow up then than today.
