    I agree with everyone on here. I do not parent by popularity. I tell my kids we can be friends when you are grown. I am sad for that little girl.

    They even released school out early for the day... Obviously they were taking these storms seriously!!!

    so very sad... a loss of life for some candy??

    As for parenting, I do not have any children, but in my opinion, it is not that the parents of today are afriad to parent... they are lazy or self-absored and not paying attention.

    I like most of you was outside all day, home by 5:00 for dnner when dad got home or you a$$ was sore the next day and you were hungry becasue if you were not there when dinner was servered, you did not eat.

    I tell my boys (8&6 yrs.) you may not always like me but you will be taken care of and raised with morals and ethics. Times have changed and parenting is a whole new ball of wax. Even my mom says she is not sure she could parent in today's world. Some of the stories my 8 year old tells me about his friends at school blow my mind.

    Oh boy do I believe you on that one! Morals and ethics have been thrown out the window with a lot of children. It's so sad how some of them are being raised. The stories that I hear about some of the kids that I'm working with just makes me want to go hunt down their parents...anyone have any bail money?

The first thing my daughter said was "Why would the parents allow them to go out last night?". Of course we don't know all the details of what exactly happened, BUT I know in my area lots of parents were complaining on FB about changing Trick or Treating!!! REALLY?!! Do we lose all common sense because we don't want our kids to be disappointed about Trick or Treating? WTH is wrong w/people?!! Ok off my soapbox for now... LOL I just don't understand why people are afraid to actually parent their kids these days?!!
    I wish I knew the answer to why some parents don't parent. I would rather my child be SAFE than anything else...Trick or treating can wait ONE DAY or skipped altogether...not going to destroy their childhood. I am sure the parents of the 9 year old are feeling pretty bad right now.

    You are right Christine, so MANY parents do NOT care what their kids are doing... let society raise them!!! Very, very sad...

    I agree... I'm sure those parents are feeling awful about what happened, gosh accidents DO happen all the time w/kids!!! This one was so preventable...

    I don't think my kids were afraid of me or my husband, but I believe they respected us. They still got in trouble--alcohol, curfew violations--but they grew up with common sense.

    Same thing here last year with Hurricane Sandy. I heard many people ask who the Governor thinks he is canceling Halloween? It's because a lot of parents are too dense to make that call for the safety of their own children.
