Kids Point At Parents

Dear Editor;

(These letters are in response to last week’s Wave editorial "Parents Must Take Responsibility.")

I think you should blame the parents because the parents should teach the kids manners, like at the table don’t chew with your mouth open. I also think that the parents should talk to children if they have any problems. Sometimes the parents should give the children more attention. If the parents would respect the child, then the child wouldn’t be so disrespectful.

The parents are the closest things to the children, so if the children harm someone then that means that the parents are responsible. So you parents, teach your children well!

Dear Editor;

After talking about the case when the six year old came to school with a gun and shot another six year old, it made me think about whose fault it was. I think it was the parent’s fault because they should not have a gun at home.

I also think that the parents should have explained what to do when another child is bothering them. The school should be blamed a little because they should teach the children not to play with guns or smoke. I also think that the T.V. has an influence on kids too because children think what is on T.V. is real.

An older sister or brother is also a big influence because the younger child would want to copy. I think the parents should take time to spend with their children.

Dear Editor;

When kids harm others at school, is it their fault? When they watch T.V., is it their fault? Or is it the parent’s fault? You guessed right, it is the parent’s fault. The parents should monitor them. Monitor everything they do, everything they watch. It is also their fault because some parents influence kids to hit others back. They also don’t show attention or encourage their kids enough.
