Why Parents Need to Take Back Control of Their Children

mom says

I will probably offend a lot of parents with this so I am warning you ahead of time.

On the NBC Today show there was an interview with a 13 year old girl, Kayla Mason, about the charges she is facing and being tried as an accomplice in the beating of another child, her best friend, Josie Ratley.  The original story came out March 24 and “the nation” was shocked, so said the media.  We weren’t shocked as this is happening way too often to be shocked any longer.

What occurred is tragic.  Two, 15 year old, kids who didn’t even know each other got into a heated exchange over cellphones with text messages.  The boy in this case, Wayne Treacy, got enraged when Josie Ratley made some reference to his brother who had committed suicide.  He texted back to Josie he was going to kill.  Wayne was so enraged by the comment, he claims, that he put on steel toed boots and rode his bike 3 miles to the school.  He asked Kayla Mason, who he did know, to point out Josie Ratley.  Kayla pointed out her best friend to him and then got on a school bus and went home.  Wayne attacked Josie, repeatedly slamming her head into the concrete and kicking her relentlessly with steel toed boots.

Josie somehow managed to survive this brutal attack but has severe damage and is relearning everything from speaking to brushing her teeth.  It is very tragic and should be very shocking but this is happening too often.  Kids are not making rash impulse decisions.  They are not consumed with rage.  These kids plan and carry out the most heinous acts against other kids and the “experts” are still making excuses for them.  Kids are detached from emotion, empathy, logic and concern for themselves.  They have been bailed out by the “experts” placing the blame on parents for too long.

The story from the Today show, that has everyone talking, is not about the girl being beaten almost to death.  No, the story is about Kayla Mason using the word c**t on national television.  The host, Meredith Viera, asked Kayla what the text messages were and the girl repeated verbatim what she saw.  That is what people are upset about.  The comments and message boards are lit up with people saying how disgusting it is for a 13 year old girl to so casually say the word c**t on national television.

Where is the outrage over the beating Josie took and how commonplace it is becoming?  Where is the outrage over how this 13 year old girl, Kayla, pointed out her best friend to someone who said he wanted to kill her?  In Kayla’s defense, she claims not to have seen that message just two others.  Where is the outrage over a 15 year old boy planning to kill and almost killing another child over text messages?
