TUES REALITY CHECK What I consider to be "High School behaviors and decision models" is outdated. Today's youth exhibit these behaviors and decisions in their 18-24 year old semi-adult selves. From work ethic, to relationships, to dating, to general life skills... Adulthood is developing later. This is not a criticism. It is a fact.
We as adults and parents need to get on board and realize it because we did it. They did not. If they aren't ready to live as adults, the parents are to blame.. not teachers, not society, not systemic oppression, not guns... PARENTS and FAMILIES.
Decision and Behaviors have consequences.
Right or wrong doesn't even come into play all that much anymore if you have teenagers... The ability to adapt, and overcome is what we need to do, and they need to learn.
