I don't know when it happened but it seems like somewhere along the lines minors have become given a large amount of freedom. If they want to talk back to their parents their parents call it "expressing themselves". If they act up in class then the teacher must not have earned the child's respect. If a teenager comes to their parents & says they want to have sex their parents put them on bc/buy them condoms. We're catering to our children, we aren't making them accountable and then we wonder when they have children before they tturn 18, drop of high school, etc.. Parents CAN say no to their teen who wants to have sex. Parents CAN tell them no when they want to go out with friends. Parents CAN supervise their minor children until they graduate high school. It's our job to teach our children, to guide them & to make decisions for them when they aren't making the best ones for themselves. When did parents stop remembering that?

My son has freedom but I have the last word and I know where he is and who he is with if I say come home because I think its wrong he does. So he knows he has to earn and keep earning to have what he wants. Respect is something he also knows but we are talking about a future Marine he knows respect.
