The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Parents produce employees and bosses. As I was writing this I couldn't help having flashbacks to childhood. No, it wasn't quite a hundred years ago, but it was in a different time. It was a time when a parent said, "No!" with a firmness that conveyed it was a complete sentence. It was a time when "Don't!" struck fear into my little heart and my eyes opened wide as saucers in anticipation off what might befall me next. And of course there was the irrefutable "Because I said so!" which served as the perfectly acceptable, fully detailed explanation a child required from a parent. Follow TheStreet on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook. Those kids grew up and became workers who responded to bosses the same way. And some become bosses themselves relying on the certainty that workers would carry out tasks with dependability, accountability and responsibility -- because that's the way they were raised.
