Philly Mayor Michael Nutter just might be my new best friend or BFF as the kids like to say. And speaking of kids, the Mayor and I agree 100% on one thing: Parents need to grow up and raise their own kids!
In a stirring speech Nutter recently said, “Parents, it is your responsibility to know where your children are, what they are doing, and who they are with. They are your children and you need to raise them!”
In an effort to cut down on teen crime, loitering, and gangs, Mayor Nutter has issued a very stict curfew and plans to hold parents responsible for their children, something I have to cheer.
Do you suppose the idea might filter out to all 50 states and it might be possible to enter a restaurant where children actually know how to eat and how to behave while doing it?
It’s a thought, radical, I know, but a thought…
