to act like thugs, gangsta's? Cussing? Make provocative statements in their actions, dress, words? How is this age appropriate behavior? Who finds this acceptable?
I know kids will be kids. But oh my, the tone young adults, teens, and even middle schoolers have for older adults and authority.

I think it's everywhere. And its more environmental, like that's what they live so that's what they express. I believe in self expression, but there is a line between expressing yourself and provoking and harming others either by words or actions. I've lived in 4 cities in the past 18 months and worked in another and I have seen it everywhere. I now live in a bigger city and do see it more so than others in the past year. Morality isn't being taught as well as respect. It's more finger pointing and disciplining the negative rather that reinforcing the positive.
