    Why do people do not understand the self-controlled, mannerly child in favor of the more

    rambuctious,  so-called typical rough and tumble child whom they consider to be more natural and normal?

    My son was like that when he was little-bitty.  Whenever we'd travel, people commented on his amazingly-good behavior, saying he was the only child who wasn't creating a fuss.

    That's a good question.  I was one of the children that you describe, and I always felt that nobody understood me!

    Perhaps it is because the majority of children is not like that. People like and understand the like minded people and if they themselves and their children or grandchildren are loud and wild they can only relate to that. In fact, self-controlled well behaved kids are rare. It is not exactly how parents trained them because I have two and they are completely different, one is very lady like, well-mannered and with a mind of an adult in a body of a little girl and another is a typical 5 year old.
