THE MERCHANTS OF COOL

Original post made by m on Sep 29, 2009

This was a recent post in the Town Square: "I would NOT want my middle or high school students to read the forums here at PW!"

Don't get me wrong. I think kids are precious. BUT! when you see this special online at PBS Frontline: THE MERCHANTS OF COOL detailing how kids are perceived and in turn acting out, it may shock you.

The noise in the library, a lack of parenting at home, and more may be part of the problem. Again, don't trust me, trust PBS
