So it's not much of a stretch to believe that a good number of Newfoal parents, while they would be loving and caring, would be horrible disciplinarians and be way too overly indulgent, resulting in [[SpoiledBrat Spoiled Brats]] that would put Diamond Tiara to shame, or children with a heavy chip on their shoulder (like Firebird, whose special talent ''is'' being a BullyHunter pretty much).
