What is Wrong With Them!!!!

Either it's the chemicals in the foods today removing brain cells or 'parents' who are deaf, dumb and blind. A 16-year-old shoots a girl and wounds another while in school in Italy, Texas. 2 teens kill a convenience store clerk in Garland, Texas. 6 teens burglarize a home and steal their truck. A 15-year-old in Kentucky shoots 19 at a school; 2 are dead. Do they think they can just get a slap on the wrist and get sent home with Mommy and Daddy? These incidents happen EVERY day. Don't you think as a parent you should know where your kid is and what he's doing? Are there no curfews anymore? I realize people are going to blame gun control laws for all of this but we could take every gun away from everyone and there would still be illegal guns on the street. As a gun owner, you should know where it is at all times; particularly if you have kids. Had I have touched one of my Father's guns without his permission and him being there, he would have beat the crap out of me and I KNEW it. Parents are oblivious to what they're doing and where their kids are today. I wouldn't trust a 13-year-old today.

I would not even trust a 11 year old today, but those to blame are their parents.

I know right @LadyDuck ? It is scary to even think about what kids will do today.

@nanette64 I remember the 8 years old kid who killed a younger kid hanging him up with a rope, I think it happened in the UK. The reason is because he was "bored".

@LadyDuck !!!!! Seriously??? That is one sick kid; and at 8-years-old? That kid could turn out to be a serial killer.

That's just horrible with the youth we have today. I fear for the next generation.

I know right? Because if the kids are doing it, once they grow up and have their own, what on Earth are they going to be like @Letranknight2015 .

Completely agree. I don't trust kids nowadays. A few month ago I met a kid about 7 and told him you are looking very cute. He kicked me and said look at yourself don't you have a mirror. Bad parenting affecting the socity. I fear how the future will be when they grow up.

It sure is a lot different these days. I can't lay the blame for it at any one particular thing, but a host of different things causing a completely different mindset among the youth of today.

You got that right @JolietJake . No supervision, the internet (social media), not enough serious consequences when they get caught doing something wrong the 1st time....etc.

Think about it kiddo, their parents were raised on processed foods, ok, I'm guessing but it makes sense, and then those same parents took their kids to McD's or Whataburger or Burger King or Pizza Hut on a regular basis so yeah, their brains never had a chance.

It sure is @nanette64 I was one of the lucky ones, dad was Army and even though he never made a lot as an enlisted man he was able to put food on the table and a roof over our heads and mom was a really good cook, I never ate fast food growing up in the 1960s, but as soon as I got a job I'd make sandwiches to take to work for lunch then in the mid 1970s I decided McD's was cheap enough so I didn't have to bag lunch. I don't think any of the fast food joints were as bad in the mid 1970s as they became in the mid 1980s.

@rebelann The same with my Mom. Bag lunches for school too. I think it was in the 80's too that the poop hit the fan.

its all about upbringing of a child,nowadays a child can just decide to shout at her parents and all they just do is to pamber him/her no punishment..in our culture no matter how old you are you can never shout or disrespect your parents anyhow....your parents can even cane you regardless of your age....the whole lot upbringing an freedom given to kids its like a chicken hatching snakes eggs not knowing one day the snake will bite it....the softness of todays parents towards their kids is like a tyme bomb

That last sentence really spoke volumes for me. So true. To be honest, I wouldn't even trust an 8 year old now.

I blame the parents. And all schools need to be more vested in security after Newtown.

There are plenty of good teens around. Lets not forget that the majority of teens do not engage in this kind of behavior.

Kids are growing up today watching TV listening to the wrong people and the parents not knowing where their kids are and not really knowing their kids. It is hard to turn the TV on or read the news and you see a kids going bazurk and killing someone. What is happening in the world today. What happened to the kids? Why are they doing this?

I am one of the rare parents who ARE on top of my kids and where they are-who they are hanging out with-what they are doing at all times-etc... I am tough on my kids but even at their ages they all have said to me they know it's because I love them so much. Thank God they know that!

There's nobody to blame but the parents. But in our society of of no accountability, everyone points the fingers at the government and says it's their fault. I call BS on that one. It's nobody's fault but the parents. Raise your damn kids properly and we won't have these issues.

I have a video here that EVERY parent needs to learn from that has a problem with their kids that MAYBE this will teach them how to change things around for them & learn from it BUT it;s like everything else in life these days you can lead the horse to water but can;t make them drink it check this out.

I hear ya I agree, today with money & the price of life now days the parents are not home 95% of the time cause their working either BOTH of them or the one parent has like 2-3 jobs everyday & always never home to take time for their kids, I know it's crazy but it's true, today's kids are on their own & that's just really SAD.
