Trouble

We try to teach children how to stay out of trouble.

It is a hard sell as they grow up.  A student at my eldest son’s school was arrested for underage drinking followed up by resisting arrest.  From listening to them talk and following the Facebook conversations – that student is the hero of the moment.

We talk about consequences, setting goals and being an example to others but it is hard to say how much gets through.
