For some people it can be very easy to hide how they feel. In my case, I actively *try* to show my emotions because if I don't actively try to be over the top with my emotions, friends and family say they can't read me, even people very close to me. Everyone jokes I should get into poker.

Now imagine if another person was like that, but they actively tried to HIDE their emotions. No one would ever know. Not even their parents.

If you cannot control your children and are not willing to be held accountable, donít have them.

There are millions of horrible parents in this country. The blood is on their hands.

Is a parent supposed to monitor an adult child internet activity?

Should my 89 year old mother be held responsible if I snap because when I was seven I hit my little brother?

We need to force people to be fearful of what their offspring might do and they need to work tirelessly to keep them under control. Nobody is putting a gun to anybodyís head to reproduce.
Sieg Heil!

I'll go further:

Chronic lack of or absence of empathy hike others
Being socially isolated in school with no friends
Cruelty to animals
Reclusive behaviour
Angry rants on social media platforms
Preoccupation with guns or violent video games
Quick to anger
Unsbe to talk about feelings

Bad parents probably wouldn't notice these things and may be the cause of many of the issues if abuse or neglect is involved.

Maybe we can pay more taxes and have the State do it for us.

Oh wait...

If the child is paying for it from his money-no. If the parent is-and Junior the loser is still in dad's basement, at a McJob, cut off his internet access via blocking mechanisms.

Great idea, all one needs to do is time travel once they realize that despite all efforts to the contrary, little Billy is a bad egg.
