Parents Talk: Teens Behaving Badly
We don't teach our kids to hang dolls at school or act in a way that gets them suspended from sports. So why are they doing it?
Bad teen behavior has been a recent hot topic in the news.
Several players from the Maple Grove Senior High boys' hockey team were suspended from play for several games.
The suspensions involved 13 players for at least two games, some facing four-game suspensions beginning Jan. 17 for an "off-campus incident." The nature of the incident has not been disclosed by the school district.
Students and staff at Minneapolis Washburn High School are under fire for an incident this month in which teens hung a dark-skinned doll. The district's superintendent said she plans to review the social studies curriculum to make sure students understand historic implications of such actions.
Why do our children sometimes act in ways we don't understand? What is going on with these recent acts by teens in Minnesota? Share your thoughts below.
