Solemn kudos for parents of a South Carolina teenager who reported to police that their teenage son received a significant amount of explosive material and that their son had other startling material in his room. These parents sought not only to spare their son a horrible death but also other children in the community.
How did these heroes accomplish this great feat? By being parents to their son. These parents obviously undertake the task of parenting in a traditional sense, not the modern view of being friends with a teenager in hopes that the child will confide in the parent and find the parent “cool”. These parents loved their son enough to investigate his behavior and to hold him accountable.
Thank you for being a good example.
