Yesterday in our local news, guess what the headline was?? Over $100.000 in fire damages!! They caught the fire bugs and brace yourselves, they were 2 young boys, 5 & 7 years old. This fire was started to a new house being built late at night.
So this brings me to the question, where were the parents? Who lets 2 young boys that age run around Winnipeg that late at night? I have 4 girls aged 3-17 and I keep tabs on all of them. All the time! There is no way I would even let my 17 year old be running around that late at night.
I’m not sure if I’m just to strict or if things are changing and parents are more free with allowing their children to gallivant like that???? If my kids go to a friends house or shopping with a friend or even with a family member, I have to know where they are going and what time they will be home.
Does anyone else find this unbelievable?? Come on, 5 & 7?? This is happening more and more. Never mind the auto theft the other night with a 10 year old girl who was caught who had 4 passengers in the car with her ranging in age from 2-9.
I still feel that it’s our responsibility to raise our kids and when they are 18 or on their own then they can make their own decisions. Maybe I’m just “old school.”
I just don’t understand what this world is coming to. Is it the parents, society or what???
