In the last week I have written about a teen changing his ipod song and crashing into a house and most recently two teens plotting to kill students, teachers and faculty at local schools. These stories bring to mind once again, what is happening? Bad stories always seem to follow teens, but recently the stories seem to be much scarier. Are parents just too self absorbed with their own issues that they are not seeing what is happening to their teens? Could it be something else that is happening to our teens? These are questions that need to be answered. Thinking about the incident regarding the teens wanting to kill their fellow classmates and teachers, what will the other teens going to this school be feeling? What kind of memories will they carry with them into the future? Won’t they remember when someone threatened to possibly kill them? Won’t they be afraid to go to school? I know I would be scared to go to school and if my children went to this school I would be afraid everyday, even though these two were caught. This could of been a much more tragic incident if someone hadn’t reported this.
Parents let’s talk about this, please leave me your opinion on all this.
