The topic of this thread has evolved - so I am replying to the topic now.

I am struck how the "adults" in this thread have allowed themselves to controlled, directed and lead by grandchildren (where the operative part of that word is "children") or others. At some point in time these self centered animals will have to accept their response to peer pressure is not universal. They can be assured, the cell phone company is not going to bill them by Text. God help the children if they are going to wait for an HIV, Pregnancy or other medical result to "appear" on their smart phone.

The young folks will change - every generation has.

What is sad is to see the willingness with which adults pi$$ away their views and values just to maintain contact/strokes from their silly childish "friends".
