    Mel, point well taken. No, I do not believe that English should be taken out of our schools as a matter of fact I think it should be ENFORCED, but that is something that is irrelevant here. I was merley making a statement that everyone has their own opinion. You were right you didn't mention anything about morals or what should be done. My apologies to you.Don't worry BUDDY I am very settled and looking foward to the weekend. I was just posting my thoughts and feelings on the subject. I do hope that you were not taking the low road and accusing me of being uneducated in your last post.That would would really be direspectful, you don't even know me, so please don't assume. Have a great weekend Mel.

    Hi Christie! No, I didn't talk about great morals or what needs to be done to this child. I stated that problems such as car theft and police chases usually don't arise out of the blue, with no prior discipline or legal problems in the child's history. That is my opinion on a story that calls for opinion, as in that it is subjective. Grammar and the English language is not subjective, it is not subject to opinion or debate, it's very clearly defined and taught in (most) schools. It really isn't a moral issue. The statement made by English Teach, and many other educated people on this site, is that it is hard to take seriously statements made by people who are barely literate. Now that IS my opinion; but the English language is not a matter of opinion unless you maybe think it needs to be changed or taken out of our schools? Settle down, buddy, it's Thursday :)

    Hey Mel I have a few tips for you. You talk about great morals and what needs to be done to this child, would it be the morals that you have expressed in your writing? Making fun of someone's grammar?? Where do they teach those great morals? Everyone has an opinion and just because it's not your opinion, it does not make it wrong, nor does it warrant being made fun of. Have a little respect.

    thanks christie, way to bring it back...people express themselves in different ways, just because they do it in a way that doesn't follow yor rules doesn't make it less valid...The truth is the boy has to face his crime, and don't coddle him make him face it as an adult...Teach you have summers off, enjoy..lol

    Parents are responsible for that child until he or she is 18 - end of subject. I would just hope that those of you with children understand that you childres must go to school and not break laws or you can be held responsible. People are so terrified of being hated by their kids or being accused of child abuse and they don't know how to discipline their children. The last time I checked, cell phones and computers were luxuries, not requirements for life. I would bet that taking away a teenager's cell phone or computer for a month would definitely have some effect (if they're not too far gone at this point). On another topic - those of you that are caught up in bashing the comments of others need to start your own commentary site. If you get your kicks at bashing others, you obviously were never taught manners as children or you've just never grown up??? I feel very sorry for you. If you would like for us to give you some tips on how to treat people, we can.

    I think some of you have gotten off the story here. Let us not critizie the grammar.We all have opinions, that is what makes this country so great. Noone is wrong here they are all just opinions.

    What's the matter Paul; struck a nerve? If people want to make educated comments they should at least show they are educated. The post I commented about was from a female (Lauren; a 20 year old college student who can't formulate a sentence. Also, this is an opinion page; you have yours and I have mine.

    Paul, ignorance of and butchering the English language will get you nowhere. Basic understanding of grammar and spelling is essential in life. There is just something irritating about know-it-all posts from people who can't properly use "their" and "there" and can't figure out where to use an apostrophe. English Teach makes some good points in his or her post about both the grammar/spelling and the publication of adult identification.

    As A mother, and A rebel in my teenage years, I can say my mother taught me better. (Some not all), parents do the best they can, but still unfortunately end up with rebels like I was. I was never in trouble with the law but how ever sneaking out, experimenting with partying, and knowing it was wrong, but did anyway. I did do alot of mine for attention but we all have some excuse. Just b/c a teen is a rebeling against the parents dont always mean they have bad parents. I hope this young mans father since he is the one who spoke up gets through this and learns from it. Just remember God will not put nomore on us than we can handle. I pray daily that my son does NOT feel the need to do the crazy things I did, I have worried about this since the day I found out I was going to be a parent. I will however do as this father and do the best I can and handle him as I feel is best. So to the father don't let anyone make you feel as if this is your fault, i'm sure your doing the best you can and will continue!
