    So the reason the world is so screwed up is because parents refused to do what's easy? Wow, I wish.

I know a lot of us did stuff when we were younger that we could get away with and survive due to either rural settings, laws that didn't exist or people who understood we were just funnin'. The days of boys being boys are gone because of kids like this. It is a tough world and it is tougher on both ends.
    Yup. Nowadays boys just being boys means robbing, beating, and selling drugs to classmates.

    No but if you get the basis premise of right from wrong, then the rest tends to be easier. I have been married before so I have a hers, his and ours family which includes 11 kids from 5 to 30. We have been through individual issues with individual kids but as I stated once you get the basis premise of right and wrong and there are consequences for your actions the rest is a matter of showing them the right direction.

    right and wrong and there are consequences for your actions
    The consequences are very key here. Kids can't be "bailed out, physically, emotionally, or spiritually" and learn the needed message. If they end up in jail, make them figure out how to get out. They fail a test, let them pay the price. Don't make excuses for them, don't accept excuses. Consequences are part of learning, consequences are part of maturing, consequences help create sympathy, empathy and understanding.

    My kids can still recite what I told them: "If you get thrown in jail, call me so I know where you are spending the night and won't worry"..........

    Funny, I remember my dad saying something really similar. He saw what happened when his brother got bailed out by their dad, and didn't want the same thing to happen to us. He said they would come visit us in jail... And there was no doubt that he was serious. That definitly was a good knowledge for me growing up. I had to live with my choices and actions.

    Probably not dialing 911 (not an emergency) but give the Sheriffs office a heads up for sure.
    We had 3 LEOs working our neighborhood and all had their hands full dealing with kids tearing around on 4-wheelers & golfcarts. One flipped in the street and really busted up some kids, some other kids got run over. The entitlement/no-responsibility generation was in full-swing. I've never seen anything like it.

    Well, I'm a father of four (and grandpaw of two so far) so I can say that at 13 yo, I knew where and with who my young'uns were with ..... and I talked with at least one parent.

    I agree, there's only so much a parent can do, but doing just so much might be just enough to make the diffrence.

    Regardless, you hold up adults escorting thier kids trick-or-treating with a gun, you'd be lucky to just be arrested. Myself, and several parents I know, will give 'em more than those 'kids' want or expect. A kid with a gun is a deadly threat, stopping the threat is what needs to happen.

    Discipline and good parenting go a long ways towards raising good kids. There is a difference between making mistakes and getting into a little trouble vs. harming others. Some kids natures are flawed, it happens. But most kids it is how their parents set expectations for behavior and what parents allow. Spare the rod, spoil the child.
