That's funny, I went to school in a district that makes Humble ISD look downright perfect and I wasn't even offered drugs every day.

All you're doing by moving though is creating new turf for the drug trade, which will exist until drugs are legalized. Where there's a demand, there's a market. And all they'll have to do is bring it over from wherever you just fled.

Hell, some of the kids who are the first to move out to the new place will be the first ones to bring dope there.

So are you saying that we should legalize drugs for children? Alcohol is legal and we have a problem with that as well. Getting away from people with your mindset, the ones who have given up, that's what we need to do. But you know, you keep following us. And everywhere you go, it gets bad, and you wonder why. You don't have far to look. I've seen people like you before in the streets raising tommorrow's criminals. Maybe you weren't offered drugs every day because they thought you already had your own. Just do us all a favor and stay where you are.

Keep this in mind, what you are doing today that you find so funny and amusing will not be nearly as funny and amusing when your kids are doing it to you, and believe me, they will!!!

the sheltered ones. They blew cars up too,smashed windows and punctured tires, pipe bomb creating, and burned playgrounds...


Heck, at my sheltered all girls private high school they snorted coke in the bathrooms. Sheltered is just as bad as unsheltered kids. Bad ones will be bad ones no matter where they live. You're livng in false comfort if you think a Master Planned Community will only churn out "good citizens."

I'm not talking about little Timmy whose mom thinks he is an angel and does nothing wrong. If you had time to blow up cars and burn playgrounds then you weren't too sheltered now were you? Maybe you don't get it because you don't have it. I'm talking about parents who really care. I take my son's fishing, hunting, skiing, and camping. We do things as a family. I don't depend on someone else to raise my kids. I always have something for us to do. Sometimes fun, sometimes productive, sometimes both. I feel sorry for you if you did not have that. I know I didn't. That's why I make sure my kids do!

um, I had caring parents and then some.I'm not involved in this equation. I didn't grow up in The Woodlands, I observed it as an adult. I grew up in the CITY OF HOUSTON.
I think those (woodlands) parents were very involved in their lives. They all specifically moved to that neighborhood to "provide them with everything they never had." The "mommies" stay at home and run amuck in valour sweatsuits all day fretting about Timmy's science project, some of them half high on XANAX..which the kids get a hold of and TADA, sell it at school.

Leaving the city and urban schools isn't going to protect your kids alone... it's there just as much as here. So on that thought, what you are basically saying is the same thing we are:

It doesn't matter where you live or what school you have, it's the parenting.

I think that pretty much ends the conversation.

So what are they doing that's productive while you're on the Internet on a beautiful Sunday afternoon making rather hilarious statements about me? You're the one who's amusing me here, by the way, not the subject at hand necessarily.

They are off shopping with their mother. Yeah, I'm very amusing aren't I. Print this out and read it on your kids 16th BD and see if you still find me so amusing. Man do I wish I was 27 again and knew everything and just had life by the nads. Yeah I remember it well. It was right before life turned around and bit the living crap out of me for holding it's nads. Maybe you'll wake up someday from your cockiness and realize you have no clue what's going on. Everyone I ever talked to when I was young said it would happen to me. I didn't believe them. By the time I figured it out, it was too late. After 3 years in the streets, and all but 2 of my friends getting killed for this or that, I changed my attitude a bit. But you know, some people you just can't help. Good luck my friend, you'll need it.
