I was posting this in a thread at a forum i go to. But then realized I was on a rant, and should post it here in stead.

A few weeks back i was waiting outside of a super cuts to get my hair cut (go figure) and I spotted this table of teen's. It was heart wrenching to watch them. Their conversation evolved from how many days they ditched class (the more the better) to how one who said that his guidence councelor thinks he needs theropy for anger management. Even sadder yet watch the more quiet ones of the group lapp up any attention they could get.
It was sad b/c they had no motivation and from the looks of it nothing to get them out of bed in the morning.
It seems that the only attention they got from their parents was that of discipline. They were obviusly not poor, seeing that they were sitting in front of a starbucks sipping frappachinos and wearing Hot Topic "grunge" attire in a very upper-middle class community.

So i dunno why I am ranting here... but if you're a parent, spend time with your children. A moment spent talking and listening is worth more than any videogame, purse, or wardrobe money can buy. Children need their parents attention and interest.
