The sad thing is the parents should be the ones addressing these kinds of issues with their children. It seems like people want to leave it up to the schools to do much of what parents should be doing.

Feel bad for the schools, as much as the schools have to deal with (really just educate) they have to do so much more that is really unnecessary although they are almost forced to. Due to the lack of adequate parenting.

I know when they get caught they get into trouble, & sent to Butz. They have to do a program called DAEP. Some of them were from the Middle School. I'm not saying names, but I was shocked they did smoke weed at school. I guess they have a bad attitude & prefer to get high than learn? What's this world coming to? There are a bunch of "pregnant girls" at the schools too! Very sad!:-(

No doubt, some of them either learned from and/or got their weed from home. There are some very good parents in this town, but the majority of parents in this town don't have a clue. They offer no positive role modeling yet want to trash the schools. STOP blaming the administration on your child's behavior and attitude...it starts at home. The administration is NOT what makes up the school district, it is parental involvement and participation. So the next time your child gets in trouble at school, maybe you should sit up an recognize the problem instead of placing blame on the school. Instead of taking up for your child, perhaps you should put him/her in check and CORRECT the behavior.

Fort Stockton Parenting. That "bad attitude" is developed AT HOME. The lack of discipline, HOME. Preference to get high instead of learn, HOME. Pregnant girls, HOME. Yes, Very Sad, HOME. Now, here's how the parent sees it: "bad attitude", the school district. Lack of discipline, "how dare they try to discipline my child". Preference to get high instead of learning, Friends and school administration. Pregnant girls, MUST HAVE BEEN THE GUYS FAULT!

Keep blaming others instead of taking responsibility and the results will be no different. They will continue to lack discipline, get pregnant, get high, have bad attitudes, do poorly in school, etc. If you're asking yourself why your child is doing so bad, look at a student who does well and their parental role models, whether it be his/her parents, grandparents, guardians, etc. You will see involvement and accountability. Try it sometimes, it works.

In the meantime, the PARENTS of those caught smoking, skipping school, drinking, etc, the PARENTS should be fined for their kids' delinquencies. Unfortunately, it's forced parenting, but somehow, someway, some of these parents need to GET INVOLVED.

"a cry for help" are you f'n serious? there is a difference between addiction and smoking pot for fun. the kids are not addicts, they are kids smoking weed. this idea of REASONING with kids has got to go...it's what ENABLES them to be bad. a PARENT is a PARENT not a FRIEND. i guarandamntee you if my boy is caught smoking pot or doing drugs, a good asswooping will solve the problem. you can call CPS on me, but while you're calling CPS on me, your own damn kids are out tearing shit up or getting high or drunk. i like to think that im involved enough to keep him from the evils that are out there, but you never know. however, i do know that if he decides to turn to that JUNK that it wont take me long to figure it out. Parental involvement is a must...and it's not in the form of "Johnny, why did you get high? Is it something I did? Is it your friends?" If they're reaching out for help by getting high, then you missed something along the way and your style of parenting/friending your kids is not working. Keep on reasoning with them though, and you will be visiting them in prison or the cemetary one day. I, for one, would rather visit my son at his home after he grows up and moves out...it would be much more comfortable than seeing him in all white or talking to his spirit in the sky.

to further demonstrate the fact that your philosophy is a FAIL, did you know that 1/3 of DWI offenders are REPEAT OFFENDERS? Did you know that DWI first time offenders have to attend treatment and classes, not to mention the incredible amount of money they pay out for the classes, fines, court costs, etc.? BUT THEY STILL RE-OFFEND. get them while they're young....TEACH them not to do it in the first place, and if they do decide to do it, PUT THEM IN CHECK BY BEING A PARENT AND NOT A FRIEND. your involvement with your kids when they are young is imperative to their actions when they grow up. yes, at a certain age, some of them will do what they're going to do regardless of their upbringing, but they have a better chance at doing right if you SET a good example for them and guide them in the right direction. the next time you sit down to reason with your child, i hope the philosophy sticks in your head...."I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend, I'm the parent, not the friend" Just saying...

Why blame parents,teachers and schools! First of all usually parents r the last ones to find out I was a trouble maker at school I never did drugs but did fight a lot and my parents never knew until about two yrs ago I confessed of all the bad things I did and it's been 20yrs since I finished school! Lets just pray for these kids instead of talking and blaming if y'all want to open yalls mouth please let something nice come put dnt forget one day y'all will have kids if y'all dnt already have some!!!! Dnt forget Karma

I just can't imagine what schools have to deal with. Growing up my parents were normal but expected what at the time I thought what was way to much. Was I wrong. I hear parents now and I feel bad for you school people that have to deal with some of these people. Not all but some that I don't think will ever get it. See when I got a bad grade or didn't do good on something and heaven for bid a had a report card that was not what my parents expected...guess what my parents were mad at me and were upset with me. They made me really think about what I didn't do to meet their expectations. In I have to agree it was always something that I wasn't doing. Never did they ever blame the school, teacher, coach, principal, or even each other. It was me that got the blame.

See now I listen to parents and kids and they're always blaming the school, teacher, principal or on the kids friends. And these people need to be upset at their kid and in even worse cases themselves.

A lot of people don't understand, and I really think overall kids are just spoiled and parents believe every thing kids say and kids no that and parents just follow and believe them.

So back to drugs, man its just the tip of the iceberg that schools have to deal with. My sister taught for 30 years and she is relieved to be out.

Well, it's Thanksgiving, and I've got to say I'm unbelievably thankful for the way my parents raised me, and that they held me to certain levels of conduct, tried to teach me right from wrong, and always had high expectations from me. I shouldn't say high expectations, but they did expect me to try my hardest, do my best, and to never give up. If I got in trouble at school or in the community, I was in double trouble at home, so THAT didn't happen often...lol. Did they raise a perfect child, heck no. I had my share of trouble but always made ammends to try to fix my wrongs. Basically, it comes down to trying to live life right and respecting others and doing for others. I now wish for EVERY child to be able to experience life in a good way, and for them to have the chances that I did, to have a loving family and friends who are unconditionally supportive. God Bless my Parents and to them I say Thank You Mom and Dad, for helping along this thing called Life.

I agree with "Older School", ALOT of parents now days try to be their child's friend. or choose to look the other way and think that if THEY praise their child it will blind others to the reality. I feel sad for the kids, they will be the ones to pay for the bad parenting. I make myself very clear with my kids, what i expect from them , whats right and wrong, They also know the consecuenses their actions will bring. So many grown parents would benefit from parenting classes in this town.
