Parental Responsibility

Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
-Prov. 22:6

Contrast with this:

The article is about a middle-school student that made a lewd parody site about her principal. The main point is whether or not the school district can punish her.

Does anyone think that what she did wasn't wrong? Anyone?

There's argument over free speech. I still ask: does anyone think that what she did wasn't wrong?

Why does the parent care so much about the time lost at school? She admits that this was wrong - good I say. Where is the public apology on the student's part?

This may be bad journalism in not following up on what consequences there were for the student outside the school. This may be bad parenting in lack of discipline. This is certainly a sinful child who needs (and I hope receives) good correction.
