p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Of great concern


Just want to bring to the attention of all you fine FM'ers a problem that I have seen recently and which appears to be becoming more prevalent over time. Specifically what I am talking about is the recent trend of parents (mostly mothers) turning a blind eye on acts of gratuitous violence on the pat of their offspring. And this gratuitous violence, if left unchecked will escalate over time into far more severe acts of aggression -- even bullying, wanton killing and acts of sexual predation. To bolster my argument, I present Photo #1 which shows a mother with two male offspring who can't be more than several months old at the most. And this photo was taken on very first day that the mother had taken her two children outside the home and they were seeing the real world for the very first time. But are these two looking around at the wonders of the real world and the beauty of nature? No, they are engaged in violent acts --see how the larger male of the pair is repeatedly pummeling his younger brother with that mean left hook and see his brother cringing in abject fear. But worst of all is the total disregard to this violence on the part of the mother -- she is actually turning the other cheek and acting as if nothing is happening. Now fast forward four years please and consider exhibit Photo #2. This is the same two brothers, now 4 years of age, and clearly exhibiting the same behavior but in a far more depraved and violent physically aggressive fashion. Note the left hook of the dominant brother and how he is now pummeling his weaker peer with so much brutality that even the snow is flying around them. My fear is that if this young male, and many others like him, is allowed to continue this activity he will become, as he matures into a full adult, a terrifying predator, killing at will and committing all manner of aggressive sexual acts on non-consentual partners. And to think that this all started because a disinterested mother turned the other cheek and didn't channel these aggressive tendencies into non violent activities when they were just several months old -- Legos, Barbie dolls, computer games, things like that. And so, in closing, I call upon all FM'ers to join with me and develop an outreach program that can educate these young mothers and hopefully prevent any more of these young growing to become apex predators.

Sorry Birdie -- maybe it's because it's a single parent family and we should be blaming the dad for splitting. Cheers, Andrew

Hey Tim -- you make a very valid point there. But you must realize that their schooling is all correspondence and online and so at the end of the day it is still the parents responsibility. Cheers, Andrew

Hey Nancy -- now I know you're a teach I'm going to blame you for all sorts of things! Just kidding -- teachers are one of the most important and, unfortunately, underrated keys to our future. Cheers, Andrew

That's how I took it --- and framed my comment accordingly

My chance to revisit your shots --- remarkable achievement!
