You mean to tell me that someone called the RCMP to deal with a 5 yr old chasing another 5 yr old with a crib rail?!

The RCMP are extremely busy dealing with drunks in this town...and now they're called out to deal with childhood squabbles in the lack of parental capability to handle the situation themselves; hence calling the RCMP to "scare" the 5 yr old offender into not doing that again?! Wow.

Okay, parents. Do your job as parents and raise your children yourselves. It's your duty. You know...something you should be happy to do since you embraced the ideation of being a parent in the first place?

And a parent doesn't have to punish a child corporally; nor spend 30-40 minutes very delicately "explaining" to the child what he/she did was wrong. The quicker the severe verbal reprimand the better; followed by most immediate, appropriate punishment based on the child's age. No looking back or caving in, and no RCMP required. Done.
