parents should be blamed for young children getting ASBO's.
Until my children were aged 15 they were not allowed to stay out late, after 15 they had to be home by ten, but I had to know where they were, they were mainly allowed to go to school disco's, cinema, or to a friends house, otherwise they stayed in.
I always trusted my children,and they respected my trust.
I not saying my parenting skills has been easy, my oldest child says I was stricter with her than the others. My problem as been the choice of some of their friends and I was always frighten my children would be lead astray, But hopefully I have done my best, now it's up to them to respect others,
I actually believe than respecting others has totally gone away from certain people and that is why so many youngsters get into trouble, the education system is also to blame because schools don't control pupils as they once did.
Maybe all of society is to blame, including politicians.
