    When I started working on cars when I was 10, my parents were on me to get out and play sports. Fast forward a few years and I'd fix their cars for them and I didn't hear a peep.

    Im confident that’s the case. There are a lot of sh*ts out there that need their azz kicked, but there are a lot of good kids out there.

    My Dad would call from work, The local P.D. to tell me and my Brother to go shovel out driveways and side walks. He was their dispatcher. When people called in for help like that. Most of the time they were just worried that someone would slip and fall. We had a lot of Seniors in our neighborhood. They usually paid us a couple bucks too. Some of them let us use their snow blowers if they had one. I know we probably thought What a drag, but It was a nice thing to do even if we didn't get paid.

    yes because the some of the PARENTS of gen ____ are PARENTING!!!, communicating, LEADING BY EXAMPLE!!

    every kid in the world will follow the example demonstrated to them....NO WORDS needed, no reading, no test....... demonstrating.... (except for a very few who break the cycle)..
