Bad behaviour, whether mere rudeness or criminal activity, boils down to a lack of good standards. I don’t agree with the founder of Boys Town that there’s no such thing as a bad boy, but I do believe that no child is born bad. Children come into this world as a blank slate. They don’t know who they are, where they are, what colour they are or how they should behave. All of that they must learn, and it is what they learn that determines their behaviour.
