One of the biggest changes I've seen in American since I was a kid - for the worse - is that boys can't fight, can't be obstreperous, or defiant, without it becoming either a criminal matter, or in some ways worse, something to diagnose and medicate.
That is so true, and really sad/pathetic...and kids aren't allowed to roam and play freely, figure out their social context, solve their social problems as they arrive, and feel competent in the world.

As others have said, many thanks to Peter and Ellis for hashing this out back and forth and offering much to think about.
