Benjamin Spock, who told an entire generation of parents to not discipline their children, stated this before his death:
"We have reared a generation of brats. Parents aren't firm enough with their children for fear of losing their love or incurring their resentment. This is a cruel deprivation that we professionals have imposed on mothers and fathers.
Of course we did it with the best of intentions. We didn't realize until it was too late how our know-it-all atitude was undermining the self-assurance of parents."
