    Dear Teachers,

    A. If you want to teach your son that he can pester and manipulate you into giving him his way, then by all means get him a new car.
    - "give him his way" means "give him what he wants", right?

    B. Do your children have a McChildhood?
    - What does "McChildhood" mean in this sentence?

    Thanks a million

    A. Yes

    B. McChildhood: the type of upbringing that may satisfy kids in the short-term, as all their immediate needs are met, but in the long-term leaves them ill-equipped to deal with some of the problems that they're bound to encounter later in life.
