You just sounded frustrated, Adam, you're usually much more upbeat. I hear what you're saying, we all have our opinions, that's what makes the MHF an interesting place to post.
We do agree that many teens - and younger - are out of control. I think it's gotten that way partly because of the breakdown in the traditional family, no discipline, religion is frowned upon and our culture is in decline (largely thanks to my generation touting "anything goes!" "it's OK if it doesn't hurt anyone", etc., just generally selfish beyond belief).
Rejoice ever more. 1 Thessalonians 5:16
