16 Year Old Girl Flies To Middle East To Meet Stranger


Bill Cosby was so right when he said parents are not parenting. This is not only a problem for African American families, but is a problem across the board.

16 Year old girl just returned home safely.... after being pursuaded to come back by authorities overseas.

How does a 16 year old girl get her passport ready, obtain the funds, buy the ticket, etc etc without parents noticing anything along the way? What kind of world are we living in?

Was she a bonehead? Yes...of course, many 16 year olds are. I'd say most of them are, especially in this culture where irresponsibility is almost celebrated. Nothing new there. But, that's what parents are supposed to be there for. To be there when they screw up...preferably acting before they screw up....providing them with information beforehand so that they can make good choices, and to guide boneheads into adulthood.

CBS has the story....
