I think that is so true. It's a shame so many kids spend way too much time 
in unproductive activities. It's a shame that so many parents don't take 
their parenting job seriously...

I had a student who was killed in a car accident after going to Mexico with 
some friends and drinking, and then drag racing. This kid was the most 
disrespectful, immature student I'd had, out of about 9 classes, and I'd 
repeatedly called his mother about him. She said she would punish him by not 
letting him get his license. The accident happend the following summer. 
You'd think they would have realized that he was too immature for that kind 
of freedom with his friends... Who knows...
