If one talks down to one's kids, then they are likely to talk down to people whom they might consider "beneath" them. And they watch their parents react very closely. Disiplining one's kids does nothing if the parents also do not provide the example of proper behaviour...otherwise it just teaches the kids to be more sneaky.
My three boys (triplets) are very different from each other, too -- as you said, Sly, one "size" does not fit all!
My boys at about 5 yrs old or so.
