“You don’t have to tell me, I know.   I’ve been watching the performance of todays..(she made finger quotes) children.  They are being raised for destruction.”

Connie nodded.

“They are made to believe they are special, superior, can do what they want, and since their parents coddle them, they rarely see real people.  Real people who will not cater to their whims.”
