I've always been a little suspicious about violence. I am quite annoyed with the tremendous violence in certain part of the states. But, then again, violence is everywhere; If you look at people these days, they want to harm you, just for the look.
I spoke on this subject to one of the deacon of a certain church that I visited
once. He said, "Are you kidding me? I replied, no,,,,,,,, [no] I'm not kidding. Some teenagers, (not all) will see you driving down or up the street, or whatever direction you are going, or coming from. And instantly, there are some teenagers, who will actually step out in front of an oncoming vehicle, and will not move.
My perogative is this; I can sit there and blow my horn in their ears, until they move, or,give myself a headache, or
they can show some respect and remove theirself.
Then there's smart remarks from some teenagers! You know, adding remarks about injury to the driver. beware some will try you. Question is, Are you willing to take that chance? I know I'm not. It's like they want to send you to Heaven or to Hell! Some live a cruel, vindictive, and hateful life. So in order to ignore the outcome, sometimes, it's best just to keep your mouth closed. eventually, they will ignore you also.
There's help for teenagers out there, a lot of good programs. Teenager
and young-adult violence is growing epidemic. both suicide and homicide in age groups ranging from (10 to 21).
Their attitudes are changing rapidly. I thank GOD that 3 of my sons are not violent. But, then on the other hand, my 24 year old Son had a temper problem. I had to pray for him daily,and "The Glory belongs to God." He turned my son life around. Now my son lives for the LORD.
Stress, is very bad. Depression, is also bad. Soometimes teenagers, and young-adults, are mis-treated at home or some kind of other environment. We, don't know what they go through. But, there is some teenagers, and young-adults, just rotten to the core.
Prayer is powerful. I pray for our future kids all the time. Even some parents attitudes are changing. Some Psychologists cannot explain their adolescent behavior.
As adults, we have to take a stand, and let them know who is in charge of the house-hold. and will not bow down to their commands or to they behavior. Whether it's a child, teenager, brother, sister, or relative. they need to know their place, and recognize your place!
I call some families "A Dysfunctional Family". Broken by divorce, alcholism, drug use, sexual abuse, and violence. Who is to say "Why that teenager or young-adult, act the way they do?"
