I am not only a mental health professional but for 14 years, my husband and I cared for 366 foster children. Most were teens, all were in trouble with the law; some lived with us for days, most for weeks, and a few for months. If you are curious about my life as a foster parent, my book When Good Kids Do Bad Things, is available as both an eBook, and in paperback.
Why I rant a bit about this particular promise. It sets the child up for disillusionment and a strong distrust of grownups. I believed in Santa Claus and was devastated when I realized my mother had lied to me. Our ability to code reality changes three times as we mature. The above is the Magical thinking stage. Them comes reality based on what we see, hear, or can feel with our hands - Concrete thought. And finally, the ability to think about the abstract. You know that has happened with your child when they no longer want to be seen holding your hand in public.

A lonely child can also be helped by being given a pet. I know, I was very lonely several years after changing elementary schools. My mother get me a do and that made a huge difference. Research has proven my mother knew what she was talking about.
Discipline is essential during the early and preteen years, only then should one set a child free to learn from life as the Parent Effectiveness Training people suggest.
Is this true? Is there really a corolation between "less discipline" and the rise of mass shootings?
