CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Dear Paul B,

I am a parent of a “child” at Stevenson. My daughter was NOT one of the kids arrested, but she tells me that she thinks that the bust could have involved 400 students, not just the 65 or so that have been “accused.” She knows kids who walk around with $1,000 in their purses and they are always willing to help someone with a score or lend them the money to do so. My daughter is a sweetheart, and would never want to let us down. She respects her parents and family, and knows how important and relevant it is to keep her reputation as perfect as it is. We have always discussed how one “dumb move” can jeopardize her good name and our family’s good name — and her ability to be accepted at the college of “HER CHOICE.” What are the parents of those other kids doing for or TO them?

Lucky Parent


Dear LP,

You are not so much lucky, but “old school,” just like me. I don’t accept any of the baloney that kids try to sell us. I am watchful over their relationships, purchases, hours they keep and their studies. I have a right to know, and I ask many questions, just like a cop! If they don’t like it, their life becomes a living hell. I am NOT their friend, nor do I pretend to be one. I am a Dad first, and encourage discussion, communication and I am always there to help. I cannot help them much when they are booked for possession, burglary, or any other felony. I am not an attorney who can help with a reduced sentence. I am, however, the first person that they see in the morning to send them off to school with that whisper in their ear to “make us proud and learn something.” Their ski trips, clothes, lunches and spending money is there, but only if they play by MY RULES. When I believe something is going on that needs my attention, that is when my parenting skills are in “high gear.” I am in search of the truth with my kids, and consequences are ready to be meted out. If you love your kids, make sure that they have some hard-line, well intended, and steadfast rules to follow. They will thank you for your love AND your protection of them when they grow up. It’s our responsibility, right?
