Before Columbine, news reports like this were rare. It saddens me to see the youth of not only this country but world resort to this extreme to prove a point.
These incidents can no longer be connected to bullying. It’s more than that! It begins at home.
I have said time and time again, that parents should be parents. Providing food and a roof do not make you a parent. Buying and giving you child what every they want, doesn’t make you a parent.
A parent is suppose to groom their child so they can make it out in the world on their own. Teach the children about moral respect for others and their selves. A parent should influence their children positively. Influence them to be somebody when they grow up, or to make the right choices.
This goes to all parents. Even if you’re a kid raising a kid.
