  1. that's it??

  2. I knew one of these perpetrators from toddlerhood. The mother always excused, explained away, defended, ignored, condoned, overlooked and glossed over increasingly bad stuff. I could see where the child was not learning that actions have consequences, and it's only a shame the mom doesn't do the jail time for the offspring.
