an emotional under the stars evening

A roller coaster day with emotions with hear from so many friends and just thankful to have them..
to sadness to hear many feel helpless and scared.. I prayed extra hard for tillerbabe and RL such a wonderful strong couple that I know will be together soon..

Many thoughts and prayers For Alex..a young life taken because he was different.. read lipssayall
a tragic truth that happens.. I feel the parents of the kids that took Alex's life should be held responsible..there had to be some kind of sign or red flag of these kids personality's..

If parents were held responsible.. this would not of happened.. they would of known where they are at all times.
I'm not writing this for comments or debate.. just a reminder.. with all our work loads and stress in life.. its so hard to be a parent.. parents are stretched to the limits and this is when we need to ask for help.. get involved with a network of parents to help each other..

That story of Alex reminded us of how tragic our life can become... and imagine the pain those parents feel, their kid is still missing and those kids took their words back, now they say that they didn't do anything to Alex and everything that they had swore before was untrue...

Parents have a great responsibility... I really believe that each and every one of us should attend a school or smt before we decide to go on and give birth...

hey mrsmuff. good post. Thats a very sad story, although I don't agree 100% that parents should be held completely responsible for the actions of their children.

For the past six years I have lived in a rather dare I use the word ghetto area of Maryland. I've read a lot in the papers about what happens. Twelve year olds running around with guns like they are gangsters. I have to say there are some things that parents can't prevent. For example, a student here at the university was stabbed to death by a minor for his cell phone, I can't imagine that a parent could or should be held responsible for that. It is important to instill values at the home, but society must hold everyone, including children, responsible for their actions. And if that means sending a twelve year old to the can for 20 + years, than thats the price the kid has to pay. To my friends here reading this- I'm sorry I sound like a hard ass, but I just feel we can't give today's children a free pass at violence.

ok I said my peace - love your blog - smile

It sure is tough. Had already found her post. Sad.
I went through a tough time in school as well. Long time to get over it.
Takes a village to raise kids.
It is much more of an issue in schools today. They are on the lookout much more. Posters around school denouncing bullies.
The silent exchanges between girls that are usually under the radar of teachers and parent have now been identified. Read "Odd Girl Out"
Hoping it will get better.
Wishes to Tillerbabe and RL

That is why I am taking time off from parties and meeting new people because my Daughter needs me more then I need a few hours of pleasure.
I never want her to grow up thinking that she was not loved by me and to grow up not thinking she can talk to me about anything at all.
I live for her now nothing and no one else matters any more.

In the Commonwealth of Virginia ...
Parents are responsible for the acts of any traffic violation. You have to go to court wtih the child, and what ever sentence is imposed you have to be responsible too. It cuts down on the teens getting into trouble, I tell you this.

My daughter got into a car accident, and WE both had to take Defensive Driving Class ... one missed day of school and work. Costly to say the least. But, it sure puts a leash on things.

I belive that as busy as we are in today's world, we can't neglect our children, cause they are the ones bringing up the rear, and really... are you that sure you have it covered??? The rear that is!

Good thoughts, Sis
