Are parents just dropping the ball or are some kids just born without a “think for yourself” part of their brains? This goes through my head all the time but it gets really bad when I look out the window. We live in a trailer park and we are surrounded by kids of all ages. I know when I was a kid I did some stupid things but I did have a few things that I just “knew better” than to do. For instance, when riding your bike you get the heck out of the way of approaching vehicles. Not the kids around here, nope. They will ride right at you until you have to stop….one little girl is particularly bad at it and insists that you stop and then signals when you can go by. They also run right out into the middle of the street, they don’t even care to look. I honestly don’t get it and sometimes….just sometimes….I don’t want to stop.
