It also comes with generations really. They weren't into the tech world, and we younger people were grown up into it.But thank you, JPizz
    You don't want her to go through the things you had to go through. I'm glad you care so much about her decision making/future. Just be patient, she's going to fuss and all that, but she is your sister. As for your parents..that's a tough situation to be in. Sorry man.

    I agree with Moke completely on this.

    Honestly I don't think any type of school can teach discipline anyhow, I think discipline and work ethic are two things that can only come from parenting.

    catholic school is sheltered bull****. its how you teach ppl to be socially awkward. your exposure to real world **** is nonexistent.

    im trying not to sound biased as an athiest, but clearly that comes into play here. I can't help it lol. at least i can admit that though. =P
    Well, youre wrong man. A kid that goes to catholic school has a better shot at getting into a good college and being successful than someone going to public school. How exactly is it sheltered? They still go home at the end of the day, its not boarding school. its got nothing to do with religion, i dont like the church either.

    I think it is innate, but I agree with you and Moke, a dress code and theology classes isn't going to drive anyone to succeed. Chaminade is an elitist private school, and you can get an equivalent education in some public schools(especially around the RVC district where a lot of these kids come from).

    The problem is that in most cases that's what they have to do, they need to learn things the hard way otherwise they don't become a complete person, being a parent is going to SUCK.

    you KNOW what the kid/sibling is doing wrong, you know how to solve the problem, but telling them doesn't help because they aren't going to listen and then you have to watch them do the same stupid things you did and deal with many of the same stupid consequences you did.

    I suppose the best thing you can do is warn them over and over, prove to them that you are right on all the small things so when the big things come along they know to trust your judgment.

    looking back on my teenage years my mother and father were right soooo many times and I just ignored them, I was a big idiot.
