  1. No discipline at home. No discipline in schools. Kids today have no respect for themselves or others in society. Antisocial behaviour is already out of control. Parents don’t have proper time with their kids, it’s a case of out of sight, out of mind with parents these days! Adults who enjoy procreating children, when their have kids growing up, parents don’t wanna know! Knife crime is everywhere. You can’t crack your own kids anymore, children know this, so they get away with murder. National Service should never have been scrapped! It would teach kids right from wrong. What a society we live in when young thick kids carry knives thinking they’re cool.
