Poor parenting leads to violence in schools

I don't disagree with this at all. I also think its very interesting that the report says that the obnoxious, violent pupils are as likely to come from affluent, middle-class homes as from scummy homes. The mother who insisted that her little cherub could do no wrong and was simply 'picked-on' by the teachers used to a joke, or a figure of fun, but it seems that this parent (or at least her attitude) is becoming more and more common.
