    IMHO Parents have failed at being parents.  If I would have done 10% of what this kid did at that age I would have had my butt kicked.  This would have never happened, however, because when I was 15 I was working AND going to high school.

    These days kids are told how special they are even if they really aren’t.  When it comes to school sports EVERYONE gets a trophy and not only the best on the team.  Kids are repeatedly told they don’t have to try to be the best – everything will be given to them.  And this is what happens. Sad reality.
     
     

    • Do you have kids because not every child in school sports gets a trophy. In some local sports that have nothing to do with school they do but most school sports program do not hand out trophies for just showing up.

      Plenty of kids are not told how special they are and receive no sort of positive feedback from their parent(s) and kids are not repeatedly told they don’t have to try to be their best. You are just spewing lies and nothing more.

      I highly doubt this teenager was given positive reinforcement from his parent(s) and I doubt he is a high achiever or plays school sports.

         I DO have a child, and at my daughter’s school, every kid who does a sport, gets a ‘participation trophy’. Heck, every kid makes the team. They have stopped issuing a prize to the team that wins Field Day at the end of the year, because ‘it wouldn’t be fair to the others’. It may not be that way at the schools you are familiar with, but it IS happening a lot more.

        • What grade are they in? You are describing what happens at the elementary level of school.

             You’re right, she is in elementary school. But, do you think years of coddling a child like this is wiped away the instant they hit middle and high school? In her case, her school is so small that it has K-8 under one roof, with the same ‘fairness’ rules. As soon as those 8th graders hit high school, they are screwed. They’ve been told they’re special (and they are, just not to the degree that they are taught), everything is fair, and life is full of lollipops and kittens. It’s no wonder that things go awry with this type of teaching. Life is full of disappointments, and the sooner a child learns this, the better off everyone is.

      I could not agree with you more! I am sure he is sitting in “jail” being waited on. Telling the other brat kids his story. They need to be punished so they will stop this foolishness. They are so enabled, it just seems ok to them. He will just be another one who goes in and out of jail his whole life. If they want to help these kids so much, punish them. They are not sweet little kids anymore when they start carrying loaded guns around and aiming them at people, threatening them. Death is forever, no taking it back. Our justice system really makes me sick.

    A “juvenile” doing burglaries & robbery of another at gunpoint, walking around with a knife and a loaded gun! These are big boy crimes and behavior, so let’s see his face and name….a 15 y.o. doing this could mean bigger problems in the future without an extreme behavior adjustment…..Crazy….

    I am so surprised that the anti-gun bleeding hearts club hasn’t been on here slamming the gun owner for having a gun in his/her house for this kid to steal. People are right when they say that parenting is a joke now. It has become too passive. Parents should be in control of their children,not the other way around. I hope this kid gets a crude wake-up call in juvenile detention. I hope he gets scared straight. I believe a couple rounds behind the woodshed wouldn’t hurt him either.  

    • Do you have children?

        Yes, Yes I do. I have two special needs children. Even with their handicaps They know mom is the “Boss”. My children are not out of control. They are respectful, polite and kind to others. I AM raising my children. Surprisingly, Neither one of mine has ever needed a trip behind the woodshed.  

        • And the majority of parents raise their children as you are doing. My daughter is not out of control nor are any of her friends. She has only told me about 1 kid in the past two years that causes a lot of trouble. 

          The large majority of parents do a great job but you never read about them doing so because their kids are not getting in trouble. Your rant is over a single child and for you to state parenting is a joke now doesn’t hold a lot of water.

            My comment is based on what I have seen. Case in point Cape-Hart. My brother’s Ex-girlfriend children(not His thank goodness). Only to mention a few.Not all that I have seen. From what I have witness, Good Parenting is becoming a rare breed. I know right now Their are wonderful parents,Like yourself out there.On the other hand,  I have a family member who works at a corrections place. They will not talk about the inmates, but I have seen the distress They are put through.
