"It is the children's era," said Mr J. Baragwanath at South Melbourne Court yesterday. "What authority there is appears to be vested in or usurped by the children, and the parents receive very little consideration."
"Give me a dad who knows his place And never gives me cheek, And a mother mild who treats her child In a docile way, and meek. Give me a house where a little lad Is recognised as head, And home-life's not too beastly bad," The little darling said.
