Parents need to get a grip and realise their responsibilities. Anyone can father or give birth to a child, but bringing them up properly is the job of sensible people

Teachers no longer allowed to apply real discipline. Police no longer allowed to apply real discipline. Parents no longer allowed to apply real discipline. I blame the self appointed "do gooders" of our society for the results of children doing whatever they want.
