Just as the perpetrators won’t take responsibility, neither will their parents (mostly). There are well documented cases where mental health
professionals were asked to intervene but didn’t (like Thousand Oaks). Some parents make an honest effort, but children with bi-polar, personality
disorders, schizophrenia, etc., are usually beyond the coping skills of most, and some of those don’t manifest until the early-mid twenties.
The thing that frustrates me the most are the parents who know their kids have issues but choose to do nothing (or even help them buy a gun, like the
Parkland perp). How does anyone rationalize that in their head?
I don’t think there are any easy answers.
I believe the starting point is asking why kids brain chemistry is allowed to be completely and irreversibly altered at age 6, 7, 8 through being
administered psychotropics for alleged ADHD (because teachers want zombies sitting in their classrooms).
Next is asking why parents don’t follow ratings recommendations on video games, TV, movies. I am a huge gamer across all platforms...7-8 year olds
really don’t need non-stop blood and gut killing, especially if they are in the process of having their brain chemistry permanently altered, at
Follow that with asking why kids aren’t taught coping skills at home, school, church (if applicable). Of course teaching them nobody ever loses and
everybody always gets a trophy no matter their effort is oh so helpful.
While I agree parents are somewhat responsible, I think society’s push for a complete touchy-feely environment where no one ever gets their feelings
hurt (so no reason to learn coping skills, right?) is driving the rise in violence among youth (30 and below).
Parents could be the best in the world, providing a perfect upbringing. If mental health (brain chemistry) issues manifest at 20+, I find it hard to
hold the parents culpible...unless they enabled the act of violence.
