Seriously, what is going on with the lack of parenting these days? Are we too busy with our lives to take the time out to be with our kids? Or are some people just not interested in the hard work that comes with being a parent that is in the present? Or maybe some are just too screen obsessed?
I don’t know what the deal is, but stories like this one is pretty alarming. An 8-year-old girl was caught trying to smoke marijuana in her elementary school. I wish I just made that sentence up, but unfortunately it is true.
According to Fox News 8 in Cleveland, the unidentified little girl of Pataskala Elementary School was caught trying to smoke a joint inside a bathroom at school.
WSYX reports that family of the little girl says they believe another student planted the drugs on her while on the school bus and told her what to do with them.
“Very innocently she lit it up and got in trouble, and the other little girl didn’t get in trouble,” said a neighbor of the little girl’s family.
Honestly, I don’t blame this little girl for taking the marijuana to school. She’s only 8 years old and doesn’t know any better. But I definitely blame her parents or whoever her guardians are for either making the drug accessible to her (or the girl from the school bus, for that matter, or which ever story you believe) and not teaching her the dangers of drug use. Sheesh! Either way, these kind of parenting fails have got to stop!
