Another ridiculous news story this morning during my coffee.

The interview sought to shed light on the reasons why there are so many fights among young children and teenagers during the school day.

“Oh it's the stress. Oh it's the pandemic. Oh it's the quarantine.”

But here’s my question…. Why is it just black students? Why is it that black children seem to want to beat the crap out of each other all over the country during school hours, or at the mall on weekends?

Sure all people of any race and any culture might be inclined to go at it every once in a while.

But statistically, why aren't white students fighting in the streets and in the malls?

Why are Asians going to school, going home, never getting into fights and doing well in school, despite the stress and the pandemic and the quarantine?

And what was the excuse for this before the pandemic??

And here’s the big question… when are adults going to stop making excuses for our failure to raise proper children?

I don’t recall what it was that made us behave when we were kids.

But I am almost positive, that if we devise plans that utilize best practices for raising people that function properly in society, that this egregious behavior among young people can be reduced and eliminated.

The methods for being a good parent are time consuming and, some would say, tedious.

On a scale from one to ten, I would say that society is at about a three, when it comes to being well versed with, or even interested in, implementing these skills.

At the risk of repeating myself, having and raising children is a 24-hour a day job.

We don’t realize… the need to impart wisdom on young people is key. And it is constant.

It takes a wise and patient human to build a wise and productive one.

It’s not the stress. It’s not covid. It’s not the war in Afghanistan or anything else, that is ‘outward’.

The way our kids behave today is a reflection of the lack of time, the lack of guidance, and the lack of love and civility, that we devote to the education of young people in the 21st century.
