Society's efforts to protect everybody from themselves just makes people that much more likely to harm themselves when they aren't under "proper supervision."
This is how I feel MLeake about the binge drinking(as only one example) that children in America do while a 14yr old in Spain can have a glass of cream sherry with the family. Basically, I agree with the quoted statement.

To quote Ozzy Ozbourne(paraphrase):

"My parents told me they better not ever catch me smoking or I was gonna get it bad. What did I do? I went and got a carton of cigarettes and smoked my brains out with my friends."
