Well, thats what you get from foot-mouth-potato syndrome...
Apparently you didn't get the reference
that little ******** should be grounded until shes old enough to be thrown out of the house without legal consequences for going to court over something like that.
What a relief --I thought only I did that.
No, I do it as well. In fact I'll probably be singing it for the rest of the day, especially when the nemesis of meat meets pan later in the kitchen...
WTF! I didn't even know that there are kids like that. Dam they are existed. What a poor dad
Meh. Dad (and Mom) got the kid they created.
I think society has a part to play in it as well.
Ah, this statement should be painted in 10-foot letters on walls in response to so, so many modern court cases.
What can be said? The law, paradoxically, knows no bounds. If you want to blame someone, blame the US legal system, the original Too-Far-Goers.
You can blame society, movies, magazines, pc games, etc as much as you want, but all that is like 5% or less really. The main thing that affects a person's personality is how they are raised.
If someone grows up hanging around "bad" crowds all their life, no no wonder they grow up to be a criminal. When the parents raise a kid properly, a kid won't be hanging around bad influences, proper parenting involves being aware of what friends a child hangs around, where the kids go, what they do, their interests, how they are doing at school, their health, their fitness, what they eat, etc, the lot! The kids should become fairly well educated by the time they hit the teens. These parents couldn't even look after themselves, they weren't fit to take care of a pet or even plants.
But it's like what does the government have to do, enforce the whole population to live a certain way? Dictatorship anyone? I think my proposal to stop stupid people breeding is a pretty good option, no?
This is rediculous, it was obviously her mother who persuaded her. The court seems to be rewarding her bad behaviour though, once again another small hole in the legal system.
I want to disagree, but it would be the only option. The way it rolls out is like this: we can either (a) screen people for parenting abilities and suitability, and allow them to have kids or not based on that, resulting in a civilisation of clean-cut Stepford robot people, or we can (b) accept all the bad results the human race invariably produces as just part of the picture and work around it.
I'm with option B, but then, I've always leaned towards apathy when faced with a crisis.
Hmmm... no, don't think so, sorry. As mvagusta says:
Meh. I don't know and I don't care.*
*This is quoting an old joke. An acolyte asks the Wise Master: "Master, what is the difference between empathy and apathy?" The Wise Master replies: "I don't know and I don't care".
dont you think that society has a part to play in how a child is raised? Growing up I spent more time with my friends either at school or out doing something than I did with my parents. To say that that only accounted to 5% of my development as a child, seams a little short sighted to me.
Sure the parents teach values and morals at a very early age and that is something that you carry with you into childhood and beyond, but what you are exposed to throughout childhood and as a teenager will shape who you are as well.
Yes, but although society provides the environment, it is parenting that goes a long way to determining its impact. By the time you are hanging out with your peers, parental influence has already shaped you in fundamental ways.
Good kids live on the estates as much as chavs.
I tell you, it was all a plot of the father's to get rid of the little **** and send her back to her bitch mother... Now the girl and her mother will make each other's lives miserable while the father is out dating.
If a kid grows up spending all his free time playing violent video games, watching violent movies, and listening to R rated music, then yes, it would have a much greater effect on him than 5%. I dunno how much, 20%, 30%, more?
But it would still be the parents fault, for instead of raising the child, they are neglecting him, and you could even call it abuse aswell.
Correlation =! direction of relationship. Perhaps kids get screwed from watching violent movies and playing violent video games. More likely screwed kids are more attracted to such activities in the first place.
What the media publish reflects society more than it influences it.
