One more responsibility for schools


We live in a society in which schools are responsible for everything. Parenting is no longer such a hard job if you can just push your responsibility off on the schools. There was a time when parents raised their own children and taught them necessary life skills, and schools were there to teach reading and math and science.

No more. Schools now seem to be the primary source of parenting for children. I knew we were in bad shape when schools started serving breakfast to students because the parents weren't capable of feeding their own children. Parents apparently can't be counted on to teach their kids about the birds and the bees. They can't teach them about peer pressure. They can't teach them right from wrong and a whole lot of things that my parents did just fine with.
