Kids get away with murder these days literally sometimes. Do you think that the system should change to make laws harder on them? Is it really working for our youth?
Parents are failing their kids, why do so many NEED the juvenile system?

I agree with Lori. Also my dh's mom sent him to a juvenile home when he was 11 for refusing to do the dishes! He ended up getting intop serious trouble after learning bad behavior from the other boys there. I think that is outrageous! Too many kids are put in the system with actual troubled kids where they learn the bad behavior. Parents need to be parents and use the juvenile system if it's really necessary.

Parents are failing kids. Too many parents are reliant on the nanny State to care for their children. Parent need to PARENT. Not depend on the government to do it.

I can't tell you how many times I have sat with parents in a parent/teacher conference and had the parent tell me that during school hours, their kid was my "problem" and in the next breath voice confusion about the lack of positive behavior in the home--and don't see any connection. Teachers are often ridiculed, insulted and demeaned for being puppets in an indoctrination scheme, but this is hardly true. WE are expected to fill in the blanks left by negligent parents (just negligent enough to be noticed, but not so much to be criminal) while teaching the full spectrum of academic content. *Sorry op for the rant--I see a strong connection between the difficulties of adolescent behavior, juvenile offenders and increasingly lackadaisical parenting. Thanks for the vent space! :)
