Now this person has the correct perspective.Indulge me if you will,when I was a youth I lived in a medium sized town west of here that has since become a cesspool for the worlds waste.In that town at that time I could travel all the way across town,throw a stone and break a window,and the owner would come running out calling me by name,and if I wasn't fast enough would grab me and give me a couple of shots to the head or what ever was available to him.By the time I arrived home he had already called my father who would be waiting for me at the end of our driveway to council me in his own way. Was I scarred for life?Hell no,I gained respect for other peoples property.Did it hurt? Yea it did but it was a lesson learned,and a point well taken,and it caused us to stop and think next time we were bored.Of course time to be bored was non-existent because I then spent the whole summer working for the man with the broken window,so not only did I work off that $4 piece of glass,I got to admire it and keep it clean every day all summer for free. Moral of the story? Windows are expensive,and the fun of breaking them only lasts a minute,while the restitution takes a lifetime.<quoted text>
Here we go. Mike at least school your people in logic and let's spare the emotion. But, since sissy took a swing and left the door open, it's my turn to give her a dose of reality.
I have kids and do NOT want you or any other person around them. In hindsight, I probably should have homeschooled them given NY's failing education system. My dear friend, anytime you depend on government or social service type agencies to make your life better look out. This is nothing but socialism.
For years people got along fine WITHOUT people like you. I don't care about your units of service or how else you try to measure/justify the numbers to the funding sources. These cases were always here and will be here with or without you.
If my kids get out of control, they will get a beating they won't ever forget. Rest assured, they will never give me a hard time again. I don't need your talk therapy techniques. Kids need parents to be parents and parents should not have to worry about CPS and all the other contribed BS that you all the other useless beauracrats subscribe to. YOU and your co-workers do NOTHING of value for anyone.
Given the opportunity, I'd smack you silly to until you came to your senses.
So get off your high horse and spare me the almighty crap that you keep telling yourself everyday.
Nowadays I wish I was a youth. I could go anywhere and do what I damn well pleased,give everyone the finger and maybe even squeeze that old bastards wifes tit just to piss him off more,then just saunter away with my wigger attitude,knowing that none of them can touch me or they will have CPS all over them,same thing at home,can't touch me so you pay for it if you want to,nyaah !!! Oh yea,whatever I break or destroy,the parents have to pay for it,so again I am TEFLON ! And when I've had enough small time excitement its time to get a gun and have some real fun,wow !
As parents we have had all power stripped away and we are left holding the bill with no recourse for such actions on the part of our children.
