Sensible article.
I'm thinking... how many adults do this. How many adults "make tragedies out of trivial concerns" to get attention. It's pretty sad.

Yea it is interesting how adults sometimes act like kids. I guess it's human nature. We all want attention and if we don't get it when we're good then we act out to get it. That's why it's important for people to give others attention like a compliment when they do something good so they won't try other ways to get what they want.

I think the last line of the article says it best.
