Baby Boomers were pretty much raised to believe it is important to: respect elders, obey your teachers and parents, be well-behaved, and have good manners. And we were punished physically when we didn't please our adults. Those are the hallmark values of an authoritarian personality...maybe that's why Trump is our president-elect. The opposite values, by the way, are: to be independent, self-reliant; considerate and curious. To encourage these values in children requires a lot more involvement and work on the part of the parents. I have witnessed a family who has followed the non-authoritarian values to raise their two children, and they are truly a functional family -- with love and fondness for each other. I prefer the latter approach -- which would have elected Bernie Sanders.
