Boys will be boys!
Sandy December 21, 2012 at 01:27 AM
And the "Boys will be Boys" mentality is what is also called poor parenting.
jeff December 21, 2012 at 07:01 AM
You don't know that and you don't know anything about what happened either.
Stephanie December 21, 2012 at 02:53 PM
Jeff, not knowing all of the facts doesn't change one's opinion of these events. I agree with Sandy that it's obviously poor parenting which created this situation in the first place. As parents we are responsible to teach our boys that a physical altercation is never an appropriate way to handle matters, especially in school.
jeff December 21, 2012 at 07:26 PM
You do not know it was poor parenting. Wow talk about projection.
cynthia December 22, 2012 at 03:48 PM
The commnet on poor parenting is ridiculous. What is poor are the stupid teachers and administrators at the school who couldn't handle a disagreemnt between two ants. I hope the parents tell the school and the ridiculous police to get a life. My goodness what is this world comming to and why to we tolerate it. Fights happen between boys and girls..As long as it is not abusive between someone being taken advantage of its normal and should be used as a teaching experience..Remember when schools used to "TEACH"..I know its a long time ago and most people don't remember when that happend.
Sandy December 23, 2012 at 01:24 AM
To claim that "boys will be boys" each time your child gets arrested IS poor parenting. As far as not knowing what happened, you are wrong. I know those involved, so I have a far better idea of the situation than you do. You are probably one of those parents who justifies their children getting in trouble by blaming everyone else. It was probably the officer's fault, she was attacked by this kid. She must have deserved it right? Oh, no. It is just kids being kids. Give me a break. Time for parents to stand up and take responsibility for their own mistakes, and be held accountable.
Nucky Thompson December 23, 2012 at 02:01 AM
Sand now we know who's kid got beat up. Nice parenting! Who are you to judge anyone? Your perfect huh?
Sandy December 23, 2012 at 09:27 PM
Nope. You are wrong. No kids at that High School. I am not judging anyone other than the idiots who post on this site claiming that when kids attack others it is just "boys being boys." Now if you think that is appropriate behavior, then I will judge you well. You are a bit defensive. You must be one of those parents who claim your kids get in trouble all the time because, "no one understands them." They are just "special". Will you also claim "boys will be boys: when your kids get tossed in prison for beating someone else up? Or will you blame the schools for failing to teach them the life skills you failed to teach? Always someone else's fault, isn't it? Tell me again what a great parent you are.
Nucky Thompson December 23, 2012 at 10:04 PM
Sandy you came right out and blamed it on bad parenting your the parent who blames everything on everyone else. Boys will be boys is just a statement and nobody on here said they think that's acceptable behavior your the one making a huge deal out of it and projecting that your a bad parent. Let me know how how the brass poles and walmart job's work out for your kids but that will be somebody's fault other than yours right?
Sandy December 24, 2012 at 03:09 AM
Nice grammar. Think you should have spent more time in class rather than getting into fights in the hallway. Now I know why you think nothing of getting into battles resulting in arrest. Must be typical for your family. Apple does not fall far from the tree, does it? I pity your children. They never had a chance.
Nucky Thompson December 24, 2012 at 03:30 AM
Well, Sandy my daughters did very well ones the head of guidance for one of the largest school districts in the country and makes over 250k and the other is senior county planner with 2 masters degree's so I guess my parenting skills didn't pay off much huh? If your gonna pity my children for being successful I can't imagine what you think of yours for being in the prostitution and gay porn business but hey they have to start somewhere right? Nice job!
StevenASmith December 24, 2012 at 06:43 AM
Are there seriously parents posting this kind of stuff on this thread? If so, no wonder there are idiot kids in schools. The mentality displayed here is the exact problem. Claiming or bragging how much their child makes a year? Then saying that someone else's children are in prostitution and gay porn? Really? I find it hard to believe that anyone posting something like that is older than 17! We don't really care if your kids are rich or smart, it doesn't really prove anything about you as a person or parent except that you are quite immature for your age. The fight is suspected to be between 2 wannabe "gangs". The problem is that no one was around to "whoop their but when it was needed."
StevenASmith December 24, 2012 at 06:51 AM
Kids these days have impulse control issues. The same stuff went on 15 years ago when I was in HS but we were smart enough to do it away and after school so we didn't get arrested. So yes, however you want to look at it... poor parenting = their parents did not teach their kids that if they ever got arrested Mom & Dad would kick their A$$.
StevenASmith December 24, 2012 at 06:57 AM
Teachers aren't responsible for running a daycare for 14 - 18yr olds so they shouldn't be blamed. I blame poor parenting... the parents did not teach their kids that if they ever got arrested Mom & Dad would kick their A$$. If these kids had any fear of the consequences they might have thought before taking action. So obviously there isn't a beating waiting at home for them if they get arrested at school.
Nucky Thompson December 24, 2012 at 07:26 AM
Well Mr Smith someone told me I was a bad parent for no reason I stick up for myself and my family. Yes I agree that teachers are not responsible for running a day care and I also think good parenting goes a long way it worked for my kids. If you don't like what I post don't read it!
sunderB December 24, 2012 at 02:54 PM
Wow, now if a boy doesn't get into a fight he will grow up to be homosexual? WTF is wrong with people. First of all sexuality is not a choice. Second of all, very proud that I am 40+ years old and never thrown a punch, and more importantly never given anyone a reason to throw one at me. I did manage to make it to my adult years as a hetero and have a very happy family and a son in HS that has never been in a fight as well. Boys will not be boys, boys need to be taught how to be responsible men.
cynthia December 24, 2012 at 06:47 PM
Sandy your the idiot here. No one said anyone "BEAT ANY ONE UP". To have the police called over a high school incident..Really I don't want my tax dollar spent on the children who come from parents who are not able to teach them the facts of life. I can imagine MS. Sandy your one of those parents who are so controlling and overbearing that No adult dare to even speak to your child..
cynthia December 24, 2012 at 06:53 PM
Well I doubt everyone on this post can say the same about successful kids. What I see are alot of parents throwing out terms like" BAD PARENTING" when kids do the wrong thing..But whne kids are successful then these same know it alls say"YOU CAN'T claim good parenting for their success" Amazing. What we have a re alot of helicopter parenting where these dummy parents have no social skills themselves and are raising kids to think that everyone else will solve their issues and problems..like their MOMMA.. Let these kids work it out. They hAVE A RIGHT TO MAKE MISTAKES and to learn from those mistakes regarless of if SANDY likes it or not.
cynthia December 24, 2012 at 06:55 PM
Well maybe other people don't really care about your opinion either..State your point no one cares about what you think about other peoples posts.
cynthia December 24, 2012 at 06:56 PM
Sandy what a foolish responce.. Grow up.
cynthia December 24, 2012 at 07:00 PM
Fear does not change behavior..Good soial skills and good arbitration skills are whats effective. TEACHING kids how to resolve theior diffrences are what makes a difference However, boys and girls may get into to fights and arresting them on battery charges is way over the top and just proves that schools are not equiped witht he kind of educated professionals that should equal what they get paid. They are not the level of educated individuals we need in our schools.
cynthia December 24, 2012 at 07:02 PM
And if they make a mistake we should throw the book at them with battery charges.. Sorry you and Sandy are in for a wake up call
Sandy December 26, 2012 at 01:47 AM
Nucky is the one who has been rambling about letting kids break laws and attack people, because it is just what kids do. Wrong. Girls do not attack each other, punch teachers and officers and end up getting arrested. That is NOT the school's fault. It is the parent's fault. It is not just, "boys being boys." If you make excuses for your child's poor behavior, it shows you do not know how to deal with them. It is not acceptable in normal society even if it was considered acceptable in your society. If your child really does work in such a high level school, you should arrange some one on one tutoring. You will sound far more reasonable if you learn basic writing skills. It sounds like your child is one who did benefit from the teachers who helped her to succeed. It is very difficult for a child to break out of their parent's station in life. Congratulations to her for being able to move up in her social class.
Nucky Thompson December 26, 2012 at 02:11 AM
Sandy, Your not only blaming people your lying now I never said anything about letting kids break the law and attacking people maybe if you learned how to read you could see that. Your the one flipping out because you know your a horrible parent and it makes you mad. If your kids can break away from you maybe they can be happy and learn something about life otherwise you have shown us that they are quite screwed.
