I think alot of times after a certain age parents lose touch with thier kids because they don;t understand them and feel like they would be in the way. So basically without parental guidence its left to the schools, the media and thier friends as well as the persons own thoughts.

We live in a society where violence is given as a viable answer to problems. Just look at the cartoons we all grew up with. except in real life the the person full of holes can't get up and walk away. Also the video games and music. I am not for censorship but there should be parental guidence as to what your kids asorbs and what it means. If we continue to let society raise our kids then we should not be shocked at things at this. that is not saying this is always true but put this influence combined with a disturbed child and it can be deadly.

I think gun ownership is a great thing but carries alot of responsiblity. If you can't keep your guns out of the wrong hands then you have no business having them.   I agree that the kids themselves have a responsibilty to control their anger but with the role models they have its not surprising this is happening.

Brad, I am much older than you and grew up with the start of television and all those cartoons with violence...I don't think that can be blamed. Nor owning a gun.

Some people grow up lacking a conscience, those we have to worry about.

But most learn by their environments and what they can get away with. It isn't the schools job, nor societies to teach right and wrong and to keep tabs on a particular child. There are far to many children in each classroom with one teacher, to do that
and outside of school is not a teachers responsibility either.

But it is the parent's responsibility no matter what excuse, whether it is they work, or they are poor, or they are afraid to interfere in the child's life. They should know who the friends are, where the child hangs out and if he misbehaves there should be repercussions, anything less, is not parenting.
