This is not my impression, being the father of someone your age. If I found responsibility in the schools, I wouldn't gripe.

The current wisdom is that we can't guide our children to reasonable behavior, so lets let them play russian roulette with a condom.

I assure you that a strong, consistant loving father is able to keep their children out of harms way.

I think you are an honorable young man, and perhaps you find the influence of your dad in ways you don't fully understand.

Have I won the popularity contest in my house?. Guess?. But no one has come to harm on my watch. I call that a win.

Things you will understand when you are a father yourself. Or not, but you and your children will pay dearly for your lack of dilligence.
