GUEST,stringsinger BS: I blame the parents ... (23) RE: BS: I blame the parents ... 01 Aug 09

Hillary wrote a worthwhile book called "It Takes a Village".

Parenting should be a major concern of society. Providing good
public education, places for kids to play, outlets that are constructive such as music programs, arts programs in general,
wholesome sports (not the Little League competition or beauty pageants), and an acknowledgement that there are some genetic as
well as social environmental factors that enter in as well.

Gilbran had it right. "Children come through you but you don't own them." (to paraphrase).

Being a parent at one time, I find it fruitless to blame parents
for what might be inevitable and unfortunate circumstances
in the development of a child. Even the best meaning parents can
sometimes raise little sociopaths. Parenting in conjunction with
school teachers, mentors, and those who lead social activites for children is essential. There are no easy solutions because parenting is one of the hardest jobs anyone can have. I know because I've been there.
