  1. Hey are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to

  2. I don't think bad parenting is responsible in all cases. I think there are many factors to consider - the fact that there are lots of young bored people out of work is one. Can you imagine not having anything to do all day? No money is another one. I have seen many parents who are doing incredible jobs but for some reason or another their children have not turned out the way they expected in terms of their behaviour.
