Tator, I know I'm getting old and that's what I drew on when I posted the detention time as that was a mortal wound in my time. It said you were either a trouble maker or a dummy either way it was nasty. There is no question, parents today are loosing the ability to parent. Liberalism has ensured that future kids will have no clue what proper social actions are necessary. In my day, you got a paddle at school then a second one when dad got home, you learned quickly not to be a repeat offender. I too put all the responsibility on the parents! The morality of our country is quickly going down the drain. Our current white house occupier certainly has had much to do with the rapid decline of our treasured values. Stealing as a child certainly could lead to a failed adult life later. I am saddened by all that I see anymore!
