21st Century parenting

I had the displeasure of having to watch two young boys throwing rocks at the feeding migrating geese while their parents sat on the logs and watched them with their dog running loose at the Spit the other day.

The boys got so rowdy that the parents had to ask the grandparents to get them to settle down. What a magnificent display of 21st century parenting! No regard for wildlife, no regard to the leash law and no discipline for their children. What does that say for the future of society?
