Making Room for Miss Manners Is a Parenting Basic

PERRI KLASS, M.D.
For years, I took care of a very rude child. When he was 3, I called him rambunctious — and I talked to his mother about “setting limits.” At 4, I called him “demanding.” At 5, he was still screaming at his mother if she didn’t do what he wanted, he still swatted me whenever I tried to examine him, and his mother asked me worriedly if I thought he was ready for kindergarten.

He is ready, each child is unique. Parents need to guide their kid by his or her individuality.
