Rita Panahi says we’re raising a generation of ‘indulged, entitled snowflakes’

The sign instructs parents to turn around if they have come to drop off lunch, books or homework their child had left at home.

Herald Sun columnist Rita Panahi told Tom Elliott she was a fan.

‘Well, they don’t even get to fail – they get ribbons just for showing up.’
