12 year olds absolutely have the capacity to understand the consequences of their actions. I don't know what idiots in the legal system think otherwise. Probably those who don't have kids.

Its the opposite: who shelters their kids like little snow flakes.

The people who don't have kids don't care.

^ If we didn't force many kids together who are not going to like each other, not going to get along, there might be less violence. ;)


These days we could have computer schooling at home.

Probably so. I'm not sure why we elect such idiots time after time.

Right, because they will know how to deal with it IRL when they grow up.

This is exactly the wrong attitude: Something is not working? Instead of trying to get it work, we just avoid it.

^ You can see from the evening News, many people never grow out of bullying & hate. ;) Schools did not work.

That's another problem: parents should start actually parenting, instead of let the school deal with it.
It all bogs down to bad parents, bad parenting.

And no, having kids doesn't magically make you know how to parent.

And again you proved my point: instead of making things work, we just avoid it.

I think it's too late for the parents to get involved now.

^ I don't know where the myth comes from that all parents have the time or training to guide & monitor every aspect of their children's life.

Many parents are working hard just to pay the bills, or looking desperately for work.

In many cases, parents are single.

Many who have children are themselves not able, mentally or physically, to raise kids.

Sadly, not every child is not going to get the one-on-one care that they need.

Of course. But those kind of families are not the majority.
And what can teachers do? Do YOU feel comfortable with teachers discipline your kids in school? No?
It's not excuses after excuses. Someone has to take the responsibility. And it has to be the parents, period. It's the sad reality of parenting.

Going back to your "banning school" post I replied to, how does that work if parents have no time for their kids as you described? Do you see how ridiculous "banning school" sounds?
