Parents don't protect their kids. The only thing diffrent in the generations is what they have been sitting their kids in front of. The Radio, The TV, The Console, and now the Computer. They just give their kids what they want to shut them up and keep them occupied without a second thought of what their children are doing.

From Colombine, to the kid who killed himself over Everquest to the Grandmother who bought their grandchild GTA:SA and is trying to sue a whole bunch of companies.

Parents simply do not care about their children. Hell I remember I could get just about anything I wanted growing up with enough nagging and agrivation (except a 3DO system, mommy wasn't gonna shell out 600 bucks unless it massaged her feet).

What this country needs is give out mandatory classes for parents, who give little Timmy something they want without taking the time to find out what it is.
