do you think gangbangers and kids in general who shoot others or rob or vandalize were ever disciplined at home? i mean seriously where are the parents in this. you know where they are at home doing nothing and the minute their kids get into trouble they want to make excuses for them, instead of disciplining. everyday i hear something on the news about kids robbing someone, killing someone or doing other stuff and getting caught and of course the parents have no clue or don't want to know. my kids aren't perfect but i know where they are at pretty much all the time. and you hate that excuse they give about no father figure, no jobs, poverty. that's crazy because there are plenty of people who had without and grew up fine. what's your take on this? do you agree? or not?

well OP how about environment, need to survive due to lack of money, or lack of available jobs, coming from St. Louis, MO I have seen this i 6 year lds who are so hungry that they steal ad sell drugs to get by even though mom is a good mom working 3 jbs, and trying her best. Not everyone has the opportunities to make ends meet on one job and to live in a place that is free of gangs and drugs! It is sad but really has NOTHNG to do with parenting, it has to do with the level f society an the misfortunes that people live with! Walk a mile in a mothers shoes that works 3 jobs, makes a dinner every night, has to live in the projects and has no man b/c she left him for being abusive... then make an educated opinion....
