Ok there is something I have been concerned about for quite some time now and want some other opinions on what others thoughts on it were. It is our youth these days and I am not talking all but things just seem to be a lot worse now than i remember when I was that age which was not that long ago. I also am not just talking about our youth as in high school, I think the problem is much larger than that. I am talking starting with some as young as middle school and as old as 20 or so. I want to start something to help with this in our area but i just dont know what or how.

I am far from perfect and far from 16 and I am not pointing any fingers or blaming anyone and not saying youth as if it is everyone at that age just a generalization of a problem that does exist. However, I did not start this to argue but to get ideas from both adults and youth of this age as something that would be fun but yet still guide toward the right direction.

It should have started with discipline. At 20 it's too late. Parents should be monitoring their children early on and paying attention to what their children are doing. Unfortunately, most people don't want to bother. It's sad but true.

It's because whooping your kids is considered abuse now. Kids aren't scared of their parents, and they don't respect them. If you're not gonna discipline your kids, don't complain about it later when they act out.

What is wrong with the kids? You said it like everyone knows...can u be specific? The ones I've been around seem pretty normal, extremely smart.

Yeah! Kids are bad compared to when I was a kid! I have to agree with cynthia and discipline.... kids need spankings, learn respect, and to quit being so damn spoiled. My daughter is 5 and she's got a mouth on her. Im not sure if its her personality l, learned it at school, ir from TV. But Im really starting to reign it in. I FIRMLY believe in spankings, just people need to learn too far is too far. Huge difference between spankings and child abuse. I think once they are freshman they know what they are doing. THEY have to change themselves. But the majority of kids are in for a huge wake up call when they are older
