Mayor Eric Adams believes that many parents are easily manipulated by their spoiled children.
Adams said in an interview with Arthur Aidala on the Power Hour radio program on AM 970:
“I think fathers are trying to be cool and not be fathers. People are criticizing me for saying that, but my mom was a 5-5, and any sign of disrespect a 5-5 woman would hit me on the butt. She never took a mess. She raised four boys.” And I was Knuckles.”
He continued, “We need to go back to some good old-fashioned parenting and really do what’s acceptable and what isn’t. And I think we’ve lost that. Our kids are confused.”
Aidala, whose guests included Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly, had Adams talk about dyslexia.
“I remember how confused I was and got bullied and caught, called ‘stupid student’. They would write it on the back of my chair. I was always scared when the teacher called me and I had to read because … all the letters were kind of complicated and jumbled together.”
Dyslexia, and the way he overcame it, explains how Adams could speak so eloquently without any notes.
One of the good things that could come out of the publication of Prince Harry’s “Spire” is the engagement of Queen Camilla and Princess Kate.

But now both women are united as victims of the overbearing prince.
The bad blood makes Harry less likely to attend his father’s coronation in May.
“Harry has no role there, and his family doesn’t want him there,” my source said. “He chose criticism over class.”

Comissiong added that it is easier for the task force to focus on legal entities such as governments or corporations, rather than on the family.
