yet another reason the bible should be let back in the school system, BECAUSE when we were teens we had RESPECT wether we liked it or not thanks to the fear of GOD and the wrath of DAD when you got home

Bullshit Dont flaunt religion in your post the Bible has nothing to do with how people react. Kids are just plain out ignorant now a days. there is little to no respect for elders but the bible has nothing to do with this. So keep your preaching to yourself.

Gotta love how the older geneartion loves to critique the younger one.. ya like they were perfect.. actually wait a seconde statistics show they broke laws and rules alot more than kids now days the only difference is that no matter what kids do now days the law enforcement is forced to get involved. in this case it was needed but i personally am sick of hearing how the younger generation is so horrible considering in reality you guys were worse.. just you didnt get caught and if you were it was delt with at home behind closed doors but now it is put in the media because the criminal justice system is involved.. get a life and quit trying to say you were perfect.. you werent the end

Sorry, but the golden rule was around before Christianity

Secondly, what was meant by "bring back the Pledge of Allegiance"?

Where did it go? It was written in 1892, "under god" was added in 1954.

Is it your position that youth generally behaves better or worse since adding god to the pledge in '54? I also fail to see how the pledge has anything to do with it.

"we are America and nothing but"

Well, technically so are Canada, Mexico, Brazil etc. but I think I know what you meant.

Give to receive said...

We were raised to respect our elders, if we messed up in school or our community we were in big trouble when we got home and we knew it!
We raised our children the same way and am glad for it!
I think this is what is missing today, parents that are too busy and just do not want to be bothered by raising the children they chose to have.

I have heard other parents say way to often that "now they want to live their life", well having these children is the life you chose, one as a parent. DO YOUR JOB, raise your children and teach them to respect others and they will in turn receive it!

Respect is earned not taken, it is a two way street, you have to give it to get it!

Do we know what actions provoked this response from the 16 year old?

I am certainly not making the assumption that the actions were justified, I am only saying that the other side of the story would be useful before we pass judgment on the girl.

I also reject the notion that being older than someone is an automatic entitlement to respect.

If I approach a random child eating an ice cream cone, throw it in the dirt, and dump a soda on them, should they be required to respect me? I would hope not.

This is because actions and behavior have are far more important to respect than age, no matter how bad elderly try to claim otherwise.

Demanding unearned respect for age alone is a pretty good way to anger teenagers.

All this time-out in a chair and not being able to make your kids mind the way you were made to mind is why kids act the way they do today. Now they threaten you with child abuse if you so much as pop your kid on the butt. I never abused my kids, but they wwere made to mind and they respected me for that and I was a single parent at the time. Kids now a days try to walk all over you and threaten you with calling children services. I wouldn't want to be a teacher and put up with these kids now a days.

If I had behaved in that manner,
I'd not have gone was not tolerated. We knew it was not tolerated. Lying was not tolerated.

What would my parents have done to me....they would have been horribly disappointed in me.
maybe parents are not acting
appropriately themselves
and are setting a crummy example.

Do not know this..not blaming this girl's parents..But there is a lot of very bad behavior around here.

Did you not read this post?

"Respect is earned not taken, it is a two way street, you have to give it to get it!"

It is what it is...

Ok, Some of you have good points. Other such as poster Friday, October 23, 2009 3:55:00 PM EDT, has points that add no value to the conversation.

Kids DO lack respect. That is a fact. I have six children and I have seen a big change in kids today.

First, respect should come from the home. Parents should be held in the highest respect.

We can go on and on trying to figure out where things went wrong and it is not just one thing, it is a list of mistakes made over the years that have destroyed the family structure.

One is Parents not really being their for the kids. They have to work and this leaves the kids to be raised by others. In the good ole days, you had Mom at home and you also heard, wait til your father gets home.

Things have changed, family structure, values, what is now acceptable once was frowned on as wrong. TV has changed, morals have changed and the internet...... a whole world of problems here!

These issues are across the board and do not think for one moment, that all this does not affect our kids. Look at Hannah Montana, her show teaches kids how to be rude of others. Just a drip in the bucket of what is going on with our kids today!

So where is God in all this?

No one should hit a women her age, that is just very wrong. I think the school should enforce a punishment and the parents to be FORCED to get involved with her punishment. I do not feel the Police should be called every time something happens with kids.

No, we do not know all sides of this story but I do know, it is ok to be angry and to have angry feelings. ONLY if your anger is handled properly.

Keep your hands to yourselves kids! And don't act out verbally, think before you act and take the proper action to take care of what is making you angry.

Poster number one...... I agree we need more Godly fear in our families and in the School.

Jeremiah 5:23-24

But these people have stubborn and rebellious hearts; they have turned aside and gone away.

They do not say to themselves,

'Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.'

Respect begins at home and homes should fear the Lord!!

Read it here:

And I am not shoving anything in anyone's face but using my freedom of speech to say how I feel.

You don't need "freedom of speech" to say how you feel, you hold a majority view.

With that said, I can't believe you would reference the Old Testament as an example of how people (especially women) should be treated!

The same book says women should be killed (yes, not frowned on, not talked to firmly, killed) for having sex before marriage (Deuteronomy 22:13-21)

From the beginning, man was made in gods image (Genesis 1:26), woman (Eve) was just made from the rib of Adam (Genesis 2:22).

Women are just property of men (Genesis 7:2) who are not entitled to an opinion (Corinthians 14:33-35)

The OT is filled with murder, genocide (Genesis 18:23-25), mistreatment of people and generally atrocious acts against humanity.

If you can honestly tell me you believe the Old Testimant is a moral standard our youth should strive to live up to your beliefs aren't much different from suicide bombers or people that beat their wives when they don't dress like nuns.

And I am not shoving anything in anyone's face but using my freedom of speech to say how I feel.

The whole Bible is for you, both testiments.

I'd get with someone who can go over how it all fits together nicely.

ever hear ....I give as good as I get?
respect is earned... adult or child
what realy happened??
I know how I would feel
is there an adult today who remembers what it was like to be a child?

Anonymous said...

you people are remarkable. You try to justify everything through religion, what happened to individual accountability.

Lets shift the blame shift the blame, the older generation raised this generation of parents, so maybe you all should have done a better job of preparing your children for the undertaking!

i agree with John by the way, you are seriously going to reference the bible for the treatment of women? your kidding right? I do agree that today's children are spoiled, but were is the accountability of you all as grandparents and parents? I am not a parent, but i have worked in situations where i have constantly heard, it's the parents fault, kids today have no respect......MAYBE THAT IS BECAUSE ALL YOU DO IS COMPLAIN ABOUT THEM!! You limit their activities, put insanely high standards on them (try helping a 9th grader with their homework) it isn't the same world you people grew up in, get used to it.
