The importance of parenting


“We need to step up up and make sure we’re parenting, and it’s hard work,” he agreed.

Amanda Todd’s parents would have been absent (uninvolved) and, well, almost entirely permissive.  Remember – when Carol Todd saw her daughter’s obvious pleas for support in her famous video, she is on record as saying she never even bothered to ask. And she is also on record as saying that she allowed her daughter’s drinking and smoking marijuana, as it was something of little importance that she wasn’t going to fuss about.

Really, this is a story of parental neglect. No doubt about it.
