You show me how its done

At times things get hectic, a constant battle of wits, trying to mold little minds, into something that fits. The mold society demands, accountable we have become, for the actions of our children, because the need to blame someone. The irony of this though, is the legislation that they pass, disciplined now, is a thing of the past. It's alright for them, sitting behind there desks passing the laws, I bet they have never, been on the ground floor. Crucified at both ends, there seems to be no middle ground, so Mr politician, I'd like you to show me how it's done. M.Mahauariki © 2012

    Nah not really, this subject has been widely debated for a while now. I know people that has been charged for the actions of there children, and the have disciplined them. I can empathize with them, finding a middle ground that works is hard.
