‘Go easy on the aggression or we’ll create angry kids’
Another letter about a reckless driver (female to boot). Four boys beat a fellow female student to the point of brain haemorrhage in Abu Dhabi.
Kids slapping their nannies and hitting and shouting at their siblings in public places. Parents taking young children to PG13+ movies with violence (but not kissing).
The driver who wants to exact his revenge on me because I am in the left lane of Jumeirah Beach Road (getting ready to turn) but I am hindering his little body as he sits in his big manly truck with extra big wheels.
You think there is a major problem with aggression here? A child that is allowed to hurt a sibling, smack or yell at a nanny, disrespect a teacher, watch a violent movie or play a violent video game - will grow up into an adult that thinks it is OK to drive their cars like weapons and behave rudely to service staff or anyone they deem as a "lesser person".
Entitlement, lack of humility and growing aggression are internal threats far worse than any financial environmental or geo-political threats.
