You’re Not Special, letter to the National Post

A Fulfilling Life Is an Achievement Not Something That Falls into Your Lap – June 12

Today’s children are apparently becoming smug and self-entitled because they are being told they are special. Turning over the ideas presented by the Massachusetts high school English teacher at graduation and by letters to the editor, I finally concluded that here is the niche market I need to supplement my pension income.

I can offer today’s soft, kindly parents just what they need to toughen them and their children up so they can face the real world and be less irritating. For a nominal fee, I will tutor all comers in parental abuse. I am more or less an expert having grown up in an earlier time with less than perfect parents. I will, of course, limit my instruction to verbal abuse and hostile silence, the other kinds of abuse having lately been deemed illegal.
