They don't sound like bad children, they sound like normal children, dont they? They did not willingly misbehave to seek attention. They quarreled amongst themselves, which is normal behaviour between two siblings, especially when they're young.
It's good that you discipline your kids though, everyone should. If a parent doesn't that's sort of like saying you don't care about the kids, yknow?

BTW its 50 hours a month. Have fun picking up trash on the side of the road kids. . . .
See there's the problem with your argument, "You do it voluntarily"... I do a lot of things voluntarily, but I get severely pissed off when someone else volunteers my services without my consent. When you're made to do something, it's no longer voluntary, regardless of how you dress it up with flowery rhetoric.

Some of the replies already stated go to show the entitlement mentality that has some people jumping to conclusions.
You know I do community service voluntarily several times a month. Yea thats why I am not on here nearly as much as I used to.
See there are actually people in America that do take pride in their communities and volunteer their "free" time to make their towns a better place.
There's nothing wrong with it, if it's THEIR desire to do so, otherwise you're talking about the involuntary conscription of another person.
What is so hard about children and teens getting away from thought corrupting, soul destroying tv and video games, or off the streets doing crime and drugs for an alotted amount of hours a month doing good things instead?
All one needs to do is look at the larger picture to see where this is all going..

This kind of program is just another transfer of tax money. It will become a joke eventual if it ever gets off the ground.
Its also a large intrusion although it may not appear to be on its face.
The creators of this thing have an end game to it that will not be apparent right off as well. They intend to expand the mission once the thing gets going. And like all government employees they will be loyal to the pusher man.
