Boy do we live in different worlds. I didn't grow up that way, nor did my friends. My kids aren't growing up that way neither are their friends. I never tried pot, neither did any of my friends. In my world parents take responsibility and teach their kids. I would never purposely bring evil influences into my home just so that my kids "are exposed." I love my kids too much.

Of course, no one is perfect and no system is perfect but I wish more parents would step up and expect great things from their kids. We need to stop expecting our kids to fail or to do wrong things. Expect great things from your children and they might just surprise you.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
