@Andrea,your absolutely right about everything you said cause as a mother of 4 adult children i had to teach them that nothing in life is free and that if you want aomething in life you have to work hard to get it,and yes i am a single parent and i hate it when parents use the excuse of i can't do anything with a teenage child. Thats bs if i can do it they can too.

Chief 59 I think we should stop coddling criminals. If they choose that path in life, society should deal with them swiftly and harshly. I'm tired of having to watch my back!
