Parents have to take a share of the blame; most don't give a t*ss where their kids are or what they are doing, so long as they can watch their Soaps in peace!|
Surely that's very few, I don't know what my son's friends parents watched but I won't stand for soaps in my house Grrr, although I did let my oldest daughter 13 try out Holyoaks and fortunately she thought it was crap and decided not to follow her friends, relief
not all parent's of suicide children were engrosses in soaps as their children suffered.
I think all of my son's friends parents since moving from Nottinghamshire to North Yorkshire really care about their children's welfare apart from our neighbors who happen to think "Whats's the point in education....." I live in a housing association property, funny there are 6 houses by the authority here, amongst a village almost owned by the village idiot
and other than us have the same what's the point attitude except 2 others, two own their houses, bought them from the authorities, now, one has very young children and the other now has his daughter living back with him and his grandchild, who to be honest is a bit spoiled, just want's to get her granddad to shout at anyone who does not want to play with her.
I know what it is like not to be taken seriously, not all parents are to blame though and it is very hard as a parent to know what to do, I know I wanted my parents to do something and unless you have Choppers granddad to beat them up
you are left with if your parents say anything the more bullied you are. I tried that and not only did I get laughed at by the school kids I got mocked by my teacher, only the head was sympathetic but seamed as powerless as me
I was so scared by a teacher who kept me back I said to him " If you come any closer i'll jump out the window" He went to close the window and I ran out the door, I was really afraid of abuse, I knew the signs. Funny my mum told me that the head had no real evidence, beside many complaints, to fire him, bloomin Catholics, sorry to others but...
Sometimes it's not the parents but a child trying to deal with problems that they cannot truly express, I know when things were screwing up for me I had to write to my GP after 4 appointments before she took me seriously, often hearing is not always realizing, I am guilty of that myself
I wish I could do the right thing and on the whole I hope I do but I will make mistakes and I hope my children do not suffer in this way because of it.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
