On Treating Children with Respect and Dignity

I'm not a psychologist. I'm not an expert on child development. I'm not even actively parenting a child these days as my boys are grown and gone - off living their own beautiful lives! This post is me putting my thoughts into writing. It's a loooong and wordy post - about a topic that is usually not my thing - but I have words that I feel have to be said, and hopefully they will be heard.

After yet another school shooting, I see so many people in an uproar about gun control - and rightfully so. There is a need for tighter gun control laws here in the U.S. without a doubt. But I feel like there is also a need for us to address something that's impossible to regulate... the way that we treat our youth in this country, especially in schools.
