The newest cynical fad is that the self respect that Mister Rogers taught to children was a bad thing. Wow. Even if self respect is a bad thing, it’s only one of the moral values Fred Rogers taught to people. The other values he taught were education, tolerance, civility, and a moral value the experts who are demonizing him today apparently never properly learned, respect for others.
Blaming that gentle, kind man for the existence of spoiled brats is absurd. Fred Rogers was a teacher and a minister who treated everyone with respect and kindness. He set an example it wouldn’t hurt anyone to follow.
