I believe that parents need to stop treating their kids like adults and take back the role of being a parent. And that parents have slacked off in their roles of being disciplinarians and have allowed the government to take their power to do so. The welfare system screams that everything is abuse. But when our children are abusing each other and their parents and teachers it's time to take a stand. Our teachers are responsible for the children they are trying to teach and next to the time our kids spend at home, they spend a good part of their day with the teachers, they should be made to respect them. But then again, a lot of the kids don't respect their parents, so how can theybe expected to respect anyone else.
