    Parents need to be held responsible for their children. A juvenile need a to be a home doing homework or chores
    We need to get our children back. They are our future.
    Jail is not always the answer.
    We need to get ahead of that…..invest of our childrens thought process..

      True but they’re influenced by tv and social media these days. They think what they see is cool to do these days. I do agree with you bc it’s really sad that they not brung up they way we were. Now you can’t even whipped them without confrontation. Even though that’s not always the answer either. So we all have to continue talking to them and hopefully it’ll get through.

    Uhhhh….jail is most definitely the answer!! How about parents start whooping their kids and punishing them properly like we used to get punished, and maybe things would be different. Now, parents are so scared of “abuse” and then they end up neglecting their children all together. My b*** got whooped several times and I know right from wrong. These little bad kids need to be held accountable. You want to do stupid adult things, then you’ll be punished like an adult!!
