    They just don't see to care and think parents are expendable. He may have been angry with her about something he didn't get to do.

    Years ago in my hometown a 13 year old boy murdered his mother and his little 5 year old sister.

    His reason without any remorse? The mom had asked him to watch his sister while she went outside to do yard work and for him to take the trash out. He said his little sister bugged him and he was tired of his mom being on his case about chores.

    It seems like every time we turn around some kid is killing his/her parents or parent. It isn't even about abuse anymore. All a parent has to do is say "no" about something and they die. These kids don't stop and think about what is going to happen to them as the result of murdering their parents/parent. They aren't going to be free to just do as they please from then on

    Our vet clinic has a client who just adopted twin Ethiopian boys and they are SO WELL behaved. I commented to someone else "We sure don't raise them like that here in the US" Sat quietly on a bench while Mom checked in and always replied "Yes Mother" and waited for appropriate pauses in conversation to ask any questions in the room. And SO EAGER for knowledge. Delightful kids.

    we cant disipline them with a good swift kick in the butt like our parents did to us .. its child abuse right away .. the kids catch on to this and it gives them control over parents . imho alot of kids also have way too much pressure on them . they cant be kids anymore .. the schools dont allow this they dont allow that blah blah blah ..teachers cant disipline kids either when they need to its abuse of some sort . i dunno my mom never put up with any crap from us kids .,she is a wonderful loving mom but dont you dare piss her off or disobey lol .. she was usually only that way if it was something that could hurt us kids physically or mentally .if we minded .. she was great we did our chores and got to do what we wanted after ward.. now adays you gotta pay a kid half the time to get them to do something because so much that they want to do requires money .. kids that live in big cities cant even play safely in thier own yards anymore some sicko may nab them .. its bad all over

    I think it doesn't help matters much when so many parents now are incredibly selfish. So many have forgotten to put their children first. Too many moms think it's no big deal to drop an infant at the age of 6 weeks off at daycare for 10 hours a day and never look back. Too many families don't even eat dinner together unless chowing down Mc Donalds in the minivan on the way somewhere.

    all IMO

    I am confounded---the mom was somehow selfish and deserved the death penalty because she's not Donna Reed? Home cooking dinner for her child? Kids first?? Over all else. Really?

    Moms dropping kids off at daycare? In this financial crunch, people should feel guilty--or maybe fear their teens will kill them for making the hard choices?

    Wow. The other choice is to abort and maybe the point of the previous post is to do so before these kids grow up resentful of daycare and fast food and decide the penalty is death. Scary!

    you ask whats wrong with our kids?....when i was growing up all we had to watch was lone ranger, superman, etc to mimic.....i remember my brother thinking he was superman and trying to jump out a window once....now we have playstation games where people come back to life after being killed over and over...i think sometimes when kids shoot others they may thnk they will just pop back up like on the game...
    and then theres all the violence on tv......
    take a good look at each decade of people and you will see drastic changes in peoples behaviors due to the exposures of violence and sex from games and tv!
    there really needs to be more dicipline in the world...especially prisons....some people really like it there because its so easy i still say they need to go back to hard labor prisons everywhere for all crimes no matter what!
    you kill someone..be prepared to die as soon as your trial is over...no waiting 20 years on appeals...you got 90 days!

    my point is children are less connected/bonded to their parents and society. parents hand em a gameboy, plop em in front of the tv and allow hours on end playing video games when they are home. basically daycares aka strangers and electronics aka free babysitters are raising the kids

    imo true parenting is a lost art.

    My mom was home full time in the 1970s, but most of my classmates were latch-key kids.....let themselves into an empty house (no day care or game boys for any of us, but we all knew McDonalds...stay at home mom or not). Not one single parent I knew was killed.

    Today, my sister's kids are all about self-esteem and having races where no one wins or loses. EVERYONE is a winner. Ooops, but despite that, kids are in the headlines because they want to kill their moms (and their unborn siblings) and recently a teen killed his mom to get his girlfriend a boob job.

    McDonalds and Daycare? No.

    Kids nowadays are lacking in the morals department; they have lack or no morals. (not all of them; yet a lot of them). I see this within my own family with 8 nieces & nephews. It's almost a dog eat dog survival thing. (8 kids between 3 siblings of mine)
    One has been arrested at age 11 already; another 2 have 3 arrests each and are early 20's in age. The one is 12 and dresses like she's 18 and in a music video. It's ridiculous..

    When I was growing up the majority of mothers didn't work. Dad worked and brought in the paycheck and mom stayed at home and tended to the house and kids. It was really unheard of for mothers to work. Most people didn't charge items that they wanted but saved up for them. Credit cards were unheard of but you could put items on a contract in stores. People lived within their means and didn't have to have every toy designed. Most people had modest homes and were happy with them. Newlyweds didn't have to have the very best of everything from home to furnishings to car and truck. They usually started out with hand-me-downs and were happy to get them.

    Life wasn't so fast paced then and it was so much better. Sure kids got in trouble now and then but nothing like it is now days. I didn't grow up in a big city but I don't think it was that much different there then.

    Now days most people live paycheck to paycheck and are in debt up to their ears. The majority of mothers work because they have to....to keep those debts paid. Yes, everything is more expensive now then it was when I was growing up but wages are also higher then they were then. I think we are just so used to having to have so much and that is the problem.

    Kids are used to having a lot of material things too. This is a whole different generation of teens. You don't see many older cars in the high school parking lot. Most of the nice cars are paid for by mom and dad. Our kids are spoiled.
    They aren't used to being told "no." I'm not talking about all kids but a good majority of them. They party and do what they please. They act like their parents owe them. Parents don't dare discipline their kids because they will call 911 and THEY WILL DO IT. They know their rights!

    It's not all the kids fault or the parents fault. It is this day and age and what we have become as compared to the way it used to be. I think it was so much better when moms could stay home...kids could be disciplined with love...and we didn't have to have everything that our friends or neighbors have. We are a selfish spoiled nation and we are paying for it.
