That's the result of lousy parenting from early on. It starts with dumping kids to daycare/nanny/babysitter while mother and father take on the rat race, bring in the excess goods, get busy-busy-busy.
In the meantime, these unsupervised kids practicaly grow up on their own, latch on to similar-type friends (with parents being on the go).
I'm a HS teacher; I see symptoms of abandonment from the kids too often. Kids with stay-at-home mother, with home nurturing from before age 5 (and after, too) tend to do better in school anyway.
I'm grateful I have a stay-at-home mother for a wife. These kids likely missed out on that.

I know you're being sarcastic, but I take solace in the fact you probably don't have kids. I'd hate to think about who the primary caretaker(s) will be if it isn't a parent.

ok, first off all these New trier students are telling the real story, the daughters a lying sack of shit. it kinda shows too, she had alarms up and they knew the code...how i wonder...and how would they this house is abandon if the signs are in the window all it said was keep out. and really come on if we sent them to prison it would just be a waste of more fucking money over stupid charges. and then all of the public would cry more about how taxes are too high and we wonder why. and julie stfu your a old women who lived in a different time, get a life. also no way 8 kids did 10,000 dollars of damage in a night or two by just drawing on the walls.
to bad this didn't happen to you...you are the lying sack of shit...first get your facts straight...noone EVER
said the 8 people were the only ones involved and then get a life!!
