What's the Matter with Kid's These Days
Buffalo, buffalo! Sorry, inside joke. The latter half of this week I have found out that several of my students were involved in marijuana-related activities and that another student is having problems that may possibly be related to sex. These are teenagers!! Okay, maybe you think, "Duh!" I know, but it doesn't stop me from being appalled and saddened and a bit beside myself. I love my kids. I love them! I don't want them to do stupid things that can really impact their lives for the worse. And the sad thing is, I don't think they realize that the things they are doing now will impact them later. I told my roommate that maybe my colleagues and I need to lock them up (one room for the girls, one room for the boys) until they mature and can make sane decisions. Since I can't do that, I guess I just need to try to e the best example to them that I can be.
