250 youth a year homeless

Postby Ken7 » Feb 5th, 2019, 9:22 am

I read this report this am and it makes me wonder?

Just why do we have children under the age of 16 becoming homeless? My thoughts are the days of parenting are gone. This would not happen in the day when I was 16 years old. We grew up to respect our parents, our elders and others.

I feel the lack of parenting is a direct reflection to this issue. What are your thoughts?

I don't know but growing up in a small town I never heard much of it. Guess kids with crappy parents made their plans and marked the days on the wall when they could hit the road.
Maybe too many options or resources today, who knows.

It's a result of the left wing's failed social experiment.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

The irresponsible have breeding rights, the rights to produce kids at will. When they don't want the results around any longer, society has to pick up the pieces.

Children are breeding children, imho.

some of it's bad parenting (I've seen it first hand with some parents) and some of it is because some kids no matter what will do whatever they want regardless of the consequences..and when it gets that bad that the parent loses all control over the child, they really have nowhere to turn to for some help so they give up..

I also wonder how many of these kids that become homeless come from divorced families ??

Bad parenting, bad schools, and no one asks for help(?) The schools are very heavy handed and toss plenty of students away at the sake of their education over tiny perceptions of threat. The only thing a student has to do is write an English essay about an alien attack that kills teachers and before you know it, the RCMP and principle are bullying the child out of school. Central School is a testament to this and they do a great job (even with alien attacks). Thankfully there are options available post-secondary. Perhaps a number of the kids have undiagnosed mental disorders.

Because you can't discipline your kids and they turn out to be garbage.
The state wants to be the parents to all of us and it is doing a lousy job.
until we take back our lives from bureaucracies and politicians....this sort of moral decay is going to continue.

Lack of discipline at home and at school.

For as long as I've known there have been youth living on the Streets. I imagine the number is mainly young men, unfortunately the young girls who end up on the Streets quickly get picked up by the slimes who thrive in our communities.

From *bleep* home lives to behaviour problems.. all sorts of reasons kids run. And sometimes they get kicked out ( new BF doesn't get along with them, sexual abuse, long list.
