Our Society is growing rapidly both in knowledge, Size and rascally inflamed. Have adults failed on their role to rebuke and correct the teenagers in our society? NO, they have not failed on their duties to the society. But the society have failed to complement the efforts of the adults in the society.
Though it is my personal view on this issue, if one should reflect back for the past 50 years ago, you will come to a conclusion that our society have been swallowed up in knowledge and embrace levity, The way crimes and criminals were treated in societies in old days is very different from this modern society.
An adult will see a teenager misbehaving and rebuke him and correct himself, the society punished and called to order, the rude and criminal minded teenagers and the parents will take it in good fate probably the child have been misbehaving at home, some children were so quite at home and well behave because of fear of their parents.
But when they go out they will act strongly, only the society will correct such child and the parents will be happy about it. But in this modern society some parents did not help matters on this issue in view, I mean some parents and not all parents.
Now when you rebuke a child the parents will attack you and even see you as their enemy, some mothers will engage you with open confrontation which you will regret why you want to correct such a child. When such children know that their parents support them when they commit crimes they take advantage of that and do more, such parents regrets later in life.
In some cases when you want to correct a child the neighbors will warn you to leave him alone that you will have problems with the parents. If you go on you will get the result, some even lead to taken legal actions against you. Before when you report a child to the parents for a wrong behavior that you even beat him , the parents will thank you sincerely and even beat and punish the child more.
Now the story is difference when you report a child to the parents for misconduct, the parents will not accept your actions, they will say that you hate their child. They will even support and defend such child and you will be the one to blame, some parents were happy seeing their children involved in crimes.
But the truth is that, there are some people that are holistically against crimes and bad behavior no matter who commits such crimes. Thank you if you are one of such persons.
