I am guessing 99% of the people posting here don't have children. They have no idea what it's like to raise a child and while they think they are offering good advice they are coming from a place of ignorance do the lack of experience. I have three really great children, One is a 4.0 student in College, One is a Army Ranger, and One is making me a proud grandfather. All three of these kinds where the good kids, the ones the schools always raved about, they where the ones that the other parents said 'I wish my kids where like that'. I also caught each them drinking, sneaking out, using the computers/phone when they where not suppose too, sneaking people into their rooms, etc. etc. etc. Sure I always knew my kids where smart enough to stay out of real trouble or at least try too, but to suggest that if you have good kids you don't really have to watch them is wall idiotic.
