(Excerpt-PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE.)
As our once-innocent adolescents turn into teenagers with raging hormones, don’t turn on the “ignore” switch when they start acting out. Parents, teachers, adults in general: Talk to them, try to understand them. We must set aside our own egos to get into the world of a teenager. Raising the next generation isn’t just about good grades and extracurricular activities. It’s about molding personalities and developing character that melds us to one another. As the old adage goes, it takes a village to raise a child.
These two children did NOT get to where they are today, ALL BY THEMSELVES, unfortunately, they both were failed in many ways, in their young lives. Many underlying, background contributing factors lead to this fateful tragedy. Indeed, it could have been prevented/avoided with the help of many. Far too many young lives are being destroyed, due to the world enviornment they are forced to endure/suffer. IMO
