I think a lot of it has to do with the lack of supervision most kids have now. I'm not advocating a return to the past by any means, but kids are
left to their own devices more and more these days with two parents working and in many cases, not caring what their kids do.
It all begins at home. I think we've become such a politically correct, touchy, feely society that we forget what real discipline should be and the
long term positive affect it can have on children. I don't mean physical punishment either, I'm talking about real involvement in a childs life
that is sustained and consistent. For example, most parents don't know what their kids are doing online because a lot of them don't even know what
a Start button is much less how to monitor their childrens use of one. Examples like this one are endless.
Just a thought.
