Of course we know that the answer to those questions is the degree of or lack of adult supervision and control!! How many of you, in the generation that remembers black and white TV's, only 3 channels and no remote control, can remember talking back to our parents, going to bed when we felt like it or parents not knowing where you were at any given time in the day??? Parents had such control over what we did, we couldn't even be in the same room when grown folks were talking to each other!!
The children of today did not get like they are on their own!! They were abandoned or neglected by irresponsible people charged with raising them! We too, are responsible for the reckless and underachieving young people of today who are turning out to be menaces to our society because we too, have abandoned them..........."
