People, What is going on with our youth of today! The filthy language and naked pictures plastered for all to see! Where is the self-respect and simple decency! Its a disgrace and its kids whose parents think they do no wrong too! Im embarrassed for our community and sickened by it all!

Kids think they're cool because they can cuss, drink, and smoke weed... In reality it's embarrassing! Parents would fall over dead if they saw what their "angels" post on Instagram and twitter... Meanwhile they're posting Godly phrases and Bible verses on Facebook...
Wake up parents!!!!

Went to twitter and couldn't find anything. Give me some help. Want to make sure it's not my children, nieces or nephews. I appreciate you bringing it to our attention. Parents need to ban together and help each other out.

I think a parent should know what their children are doing. Too many parents are either too naive or dont care. Either way, its a problem. Im not naming names because its not my place. This was an attempt to let all parents know that this is going on and its not mild, its obscene and very inappropriate. If someone very close to me had a child that was doing this and i knew it, dont think for a minute i wouldnt tell them. The other problem is, many people would not believe it and it would come back on me.

If you want to know what your kids are doing you have to set up a twitter account and follow them. Same with instagram. Its an outlet for them to do and say whatever they want because parents arent aware or dont realize what they are doing. Some of the things i have seen seen have literally blown my mind. Make yourself aware of what your kids are saying and doing.

How come you're following or creeping kids on Twitter and Instagram? Even if your kid is and showed the pictures to you, guess what that is on your PC or cellphone now? If you didn't see it, but rather heard about it, then why spread gossip. This is what kids do. They rebel, they experiment, they get in trouble for some things and they wise up. If they don't wise up, they go to jail a few times then on to prison. You know how many STDs are passed through Instagram? Zero. Are they on Twitter planning to shoot up the school with assault rifles? Then report them. Teens have always had a second life held secret from their lame parents. Always. Some just whisper about sex, some have lots of it with drugs and alcohol combined. Some might not drink until they're 21, go to church when they're told, but be closet atheists. Some just have a cig now and then. You seem a little behind in the times too. Twitter is 6+ years old and picture texting even older. This stuff has been going on for a while. People are aware.

I could go on and on with my response to the post above but your stupidity speaks for itself. Im praying you are a child,it explains the comments above, but if you are a parent, you have no idea what a real parent is supposed to do. To the parents that do parent,(meaning people who care about the welfare of their children and dont think its ok that their children are exposing their bodies for the whole world to see and speaking of all the drugs they do and sex they are having and using the F word as if it is the only word they know) I say again...find out what your children are doing! These arent just "ok" because they are "young and they should experiment". What in the world is wrong with the world today! Get a grip on your kids and do what God intended you to do...and if you are an atheist, then do what common sense tells you to do and teach your children how to act in society!

Your kids are doing these things because you haven't earned their trust or given them the guidance they've needed in the times they've needed it the most.

You are children yourselves. You can't simultaneously bite a kid's back and spank his butt. Do you understand what that means, small town simpletons? When you degrade a child, you lose all credibility; the credibility that is required to discipline a child.

The kids who don't rebel are the ones whose parents have equipped them with the tools necessary to navigate the world. You are only making them scared of it, and that's why they try to escape it with drugs, alcohol, and sex. Their behavior is an extension of your parenting. This is an indisputable fact. If your kid isn't behaving the way you want him or her to behave, it is your fault and your fault only. Take some ownership instead of perpetuating the cycle by pretending to be helpless. Your weakness disgusts them and gives them both the motivation and ability to rebel.

Before you tear a kid down, realize that they aren't bad kids. They are just frustrated, and it's mainly with parents like you.

Your kids are smiling in your faces acting like they are sweet and innocent. All the while,they are carrying on on these sites and in person. How many parents actually know who their kids are with on any given night? Do you call and check on your children? Do you actually physically go check on their activities and who they are with? Sounds crazy? No, its your JOB! YOU ARE THEIR PARENT,THEY ARE CHILDREN. YOU ARE THE ADULT AND ITS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT THEM, DISCIPLINE THEM, AND LOVE THEM. That means butting in, being nosy, setting limits, saying no and punishing them! They are not your best friend they are your children! Your social life ended the day your children were born. Now its their turn to have your full attention. When did the tables turn, and children ran the house instead of parents....when parents started acting like teenagers instead of adults. I agree with the person above. These kids arent bad kids, they are begging and crying out for their parents to actually be a parent. If they cant get attention and love the right way they are going to try anything to receive it!

I know my kid's password on Fb and her phone, and I snoop whenever I want. She asks why, I say it's my phone/internet and I can look anytime I want to. I know many kids who run around, getting drunk/high, all the while their parents think they are staying the night at a friends and actually are out running the town. And these kids are 14 or 15, and this has been the norm since jr.high. It's crazy. My kid isn't a saint, but I keep tabs and set limits to the best of my ability. Wish more parents did this, but it's easier to just be ignorant and turn a blind eye.

To: "bahaha "

Here's a suggestion, why don't you get a new hobby? Something more productive & that will help society? Like driving off a cliff or walking into oncoming traffic? How about running into a knife or falling into a deep well? Yeah, all of those new hobbies sound a lot better than Topix. Better get to them. ;)

I do my best to be a role model for today's youth, I strive to teach them the fine arts of things like assfuckery, the skills required for a chic to give a good BJ and the skills a young man must poses to make a girl cumsquirt using nothing but his tongue.

All because I care.

I keep close tabs on my son and i have seen some of the things that have been spoke of on here. It makes me very sad to see kids, especially girls, that do not care about themselves and lack so much self worth. Im not bashing, just speaking from a parents view. It really breaks my heart. Its a cesspool of nothing good on these sites. The other thing is many of these things i have witnessed have now been deleted, so i assume the parents that did take the time to check their accounts, have been snowed again. Very sad when these children have no parental guidance and have no problem exposing their precious bodies and indulging in sex and drugs as if it were eating dinner. Im saddened by all I see and we wonder as a country why are kids end up pregnant, in jail, addicted to drugs, killing themselves or ending up dead some other way. Be a parent, show your children you love them and for God sakes give them consequences!
