The children of today are out of control!!! I blame it on society. If parents weren't scared to disipline their children the teenagers wouldn't act like this. Let the parent have the control they need. Back in the day kids were scared to do wrong because of the consequences they would face they got home. Also neighbors handled the situation if they saw what was going on. Like it has been said--It takes a village to raise a child. People think about what is happening. They aren't even afraid of the law.
