Children are minors and subordinate to their parents laws and restrictions until
they reach the age of 18. The age is a number that experience and sound
decisions when a mind is adult to consider the pros and cons of decisions
considered in the choices they make. Parents are the leaders, educators, and
enforcers and rightful child development protectors in the civilization they
have chosen to live.Parents are held accountable for child mischief
and criminal acts becasue children are deemed uninformed or able to make good
decisions and choices. Its why when children are 16 parents can consent to adult
choices knowing the amount of experience they have to be independent
citizens.Choice are a learning process through childhood and puberty
which is a critical transformation event and has to be controlled by each
individual. Self control in puberty is critical to safety and childrens future
that only a mother or father can educate a child in decision making. Especially
in girls where logic and emotions can be harmful life long events that can
inhibit happy future.There is no safe zone for any person adult or
child and risk is trust in freedom and liberties we have.

Our 14 year old Granddaughter recently left school at 4:30 PM on the Friday of
Memorial Day Weekend, and did not show up until Sunday evening, when she walked
into her parent's home from her boyfriend's, Father's condo.When they were notified on Friday evening after three hours of her not
being home and after dozens of calls were made to her known friends and her
boyfriend who claimed not to know where she was when asked, the school and local
police authorities did very little to nothing to assist in finding her. I know
they are thin in ranks for this sort of thing, and I cannot blame them, but it
is frustrating not to have any assistance, except the immediate family or
friends.She had been hiding in her boyfriends's home and his
father was away all weekend, until Sunday night, when she was sent walking home
by her boyfriend, without his Father's knowing.What a shame.
It just is not the same, anymore.
Congrats to the Brinks. That's a lot of patience with their son, and it
appears to have paid off.
I miss the days when society did all they could to keep families together. My
heart goes out to these troubled teens in a troubled world.
