    It's interesting that the study still suggests that good parenting is integral.

    Thanks for the info, txsvicki!

    I am not to blame, it is all genetics, environment and those pesky parents did not sit down to dinner with me, so I am blameless.

    I can see it now.........

    Exactly what I was thinking. Soon, nobody will be held accountable for their actions.
