    NEVER-- And though I raised a kid to almost middle age (and am still "raising him"-- being a parent is a life sentemce) I can't stand the little monsters.

    The "cute" wears off pretty fast after about age 5.

    Could be but the other thing that happened around that time was the rise of "no parent family" . Personally I'm more inclined to blame absent parents than a lack of adequate violence.

    What does the place a person received a lesson in life matter?

    A thoughtful response is a thoughtful response.

    I've seen some terrible kids in a school setting. Hopyard explains how he sees the "degrees of bad" that I merely mentioned.

    I have to agree with him in that many kids tend to do stupid things. The degree of wrong in many actions varies from person to person, and here I agree with Hopyard to a great extent, that their youth has not been tempered with wisdom and experience.

    Even though I've seen many bad things, at the end of the day I still see far more good being done than bad. Don't ever think that I believe the future is lost. In the end good will beat the darkness if good people merely stand up and do the right thing. Which, may mean shooting a child if the circumstances require it. It's like any other scenario we go through. When the time comes, we have to make a judgement call and live with the actions we take.
