Great more parents that probably want to shelter and pamper their little "princes/princesses"... even making a mess in their diapers (at age 5) is considered a heroic, special event worth of blogging about...
We've already seen this group of whiny, self-entitled generation from the beginning of the "everyone is so wonderful and special and should only be praised" experiment and we want to dial it up even more? It's part of America's downfall.
And don't think an entire new national economy can be built from people building poorly designed and hacked together websites so we can sell ads and eyeballs to one another

The Polifrone debacle is an example of one of the reasons public schools are failing. Cowardly and apathetic administrators enabled her abusive behavior for years. Then they paid her a lot of money to go away. First we left the district to escape the horrible administration and put our child in private school. Then we left town to get away from the whole silicon valley mess. This is not the California we grew up in.
As for Adam, I'm not sure how your rant relates to the Poliforne disaster, but there are plenty like her in military schools. Send your precious treasures there.
