I spent my second career teaching Behavior Disorder high schoolers and in all my experiences I found that all of the non-medical reasons for their issues stemmed directly from incompetent parenting and more often than not total lack of parenting at every socio-economic level. In too many cases I was working with social workers and parole officers just to help keep them out of jail or sometimes try to help them work their way out of jail. Basically I was in charge of raising their children for them…a job that shouldn’t exist if parents would take responsibility and teach their children self control and respect for other people and property. If only…in a perfect world.
