It's time for parents to take back control of our children from the government and everybody else. Children these days are lacking two of the most important elements of growing up — respect and discipline.

This is mostly due to the government controlling the way parents can or can't discipline and raise their children. With this occurring, we are seeing so many issues with children from gangs, bullying, and violence that our schools cannot do what they were intended for — learning.

If the government and the other critics would just shut up and allow the parents to raise their kids, you would see a difference in a lot of areas that effects kids from elementary to high school age kids. These outsiders only see these kids for a short time day-to-day, but parents see their children every day.

Without experiencing the nature of any child both inside the home and out, you cannot determine what is actually best for one child to the next. So, you tell me, who is going to know more about your kids, the government or you?

Government doesn't think parents know more than the village for raising children.

The problem is that we have lost the traditional family structure for most families, along with the absence or civility and respect. Just my opinion.
