I was reading a Mommy board recently and they were talking about the kids fighting in the car. The number of women who said they take away whatever the kids are fighting over and throw it out the window astounded me. And when called on it, they saw nothing wrong with it - couldn't see why it was a problem - EVERYONE throws trash out their car window - and it wasn't like they were throwing Gameboys - it was just the McDonald's toys or cheap stuffed animals or baseball caps or.....

There were more women admitting to and defending the behavior than people saying "wow, that's screwed up."
