Operators don't need to be coddled if you want them to be worth their salt. I had a flight instructor when I was in my early teens who would smoke cigars and scream in my ear in the most critical phases of flight. I hated the man until I had those critical moments solo. Then I learned why he was such a codger. Actually saved my life down the line from the lessons he taught and the stress he created. I began to understand. World is a complicated place so if you need to be coddled all the way through you may not perform when its required. Being said fowl language and harassment is not good but a slap in the face can be a good thing. We can see the results of coddling today and it isn't pretty for anyone.
