Yeah, but I can sort of see how he hit the breaking point...as obviously
the kid's parents didn't care enough to rein him in. I live next to a
4-year old who just walks on in our house. His mom's lucky we're nice or
he could just "disappear" without a trace. Kid's too trusting...especially
in a complex that had a drive-by shooting just a few weeks ago. I can't
WAIT!! to move!

Kids that young need to be that trusting. THe parents need to be more
responsible.

Unfortunately, most of the moms in my complex aren't responsible and are
depending on everyone else to keep track of (and feed) their kids for
them.

Not really a proportional response IMO

Looks like those moms have the "it takes a village" attitude to raising
kids. What a crock of manure.

Uh...I think the phrase means it "takes you AND your village", not instead
of.

Hmm... Stalin and Mao tried that mass collectivization thing, and look
where it got their nations.

First in space? :)

What I'm saying is that when I was growing up, we were not only worried
about OUR parents catching us, but the neighbors as well..

Kind of a "neighborhood crime watch", but without the requisite adults
shooting unarmed children.

If I thought I could get away with it I would. ;) It's pretty sad when
the mom's care less about their kid's safety than the neighbors with no
kids do. The mom's speed through the complex at 35mph + (speed limit is
10mph) while those without kids do the speed limit so we don't hit their
out of control kids that are standing in the middle of the street.

The difference there is that you were concerned about your parents catching
you...these kids know their mom's don't care and have no respect for any
other adults as a result.

Craig

I blame the Moms then. It is a parent's responsibility to install the
proper fear/respect in their child.

On a related note, when I was a high school teacher I had parents tell me
that I was their child's problem. Oh, that went over well. It was MY fault
that their son fails all of his classes!

My buddies sister recently resigned as principal of a high school. She
said she got tired of the constant parade of parents either insisting
that it is the schools fault that things aren't working out or badgering
her to have grades changed to A (Average).

The school I taught at had revolving classes, meaning I would teach the kids
at a different hour of every day. I found it hard to believe that his
frustration with me boiled over into the next morning's classes. :)

Funny things, parents.
