Yes I do have kids, well they are grown and in College now. I will agree 100% with that spending time (quality time) with the children have should be priority number 1. Speaking from experience it is the very best investment we can make for the children we have.

On the subject the Larsen and Lakewood areas of town I was to general. Bottom line, most communities have a small pocket that produces the majority of the crime. Usually crime rates around HUD/Section 8 apartments and housing are far higher than other parts of the whole community. Obviously this is true with the Larsen and Lakewood area especially on the eastern boundaries near Phillips Highway. Just to the East of Phillips you have those apartments on Sandlin Street and San Diego Road. So my apologizes for being overly generalizing my previous post.
