Always saddens me reading forums. People are always rude to one another like they feel writing online rather than being face to face means not being respectful and civil and that they should judge and stereotype. Now ive seen way more toddlers, children and adults misbehave than i have teenagers, however as a 'single mum' i dont go out in the evening/ night time so maybe i miss the teenagers mischeif. Any 'sensible' parent would have their child home at a sensible time, i cant imagine a parent feeling happy that their child is out at night time. So surely its not all night? Maybe just early evening? When i was a teenager i spent time in the park or around it. I guess its where you feel safe when you want to be out the house. Where would you prefer they be. Bearing in mind A: some parents cant afford activities every minute of the day and like grown ups they have free time before or after activity or have days off 2: kids like being with their friends ( why not) 3: parents have to work now days and kids have alot of holidays off from school, and there are no holiday clubs for kids over 13yrs. In the daytime we all have to share where we live with each other. It doesnt matter the age. If we as adults feel we have learnt to be good citizens we can teach manners and respect to our children and hopefully they will behave this way. Talk to teenagers nicely have a chat with them. Or point things out to distracted parents of younger ones, in a nice tone. I cant speak for all children or their actions but teenagers are still children and therefore still learning about society and social interations. Play a useful part in it. We will all be children adults and then seniors. No one is better than another. No one should be judged.

What a pile of gibberish claptrap. Get off benefits and stop having kids you can't afford.

I'm not quite sure where the 'man/teen in the park' fits into this - you'll haven't explained the background. However, I think you're right. We often demonize teenagers, but they're no worse or better than anyone else. Talking and listening to them is always better than jumping to conclusions and being hostile.

If people only had children they could afford, we wouldn't get anywhere near enough future tax payers to pay for someone to wipe your behind when you are old.
Try some joined up thinking and stop reading the Mail/Sun.

Wouldn’t need to as we wouldn’t be paying hugh sums to the baby factories to be on benefits.

And what are those sums exactly? As a percentage of government expenditure?

This was meant to be a response to people complaining about 'teenagers in the park' thread not a new one im not sure how it happened or the man/ teen bit! Odd! Im not surprised to have negatives, i think people come on to let off steam whilst hiding behind computers or phones, i was really only making a point that we shouldnt catagorise or judge. The single mum bit was because someone said bad teenagers are because of single mums. By the way i dont have teenagers so it wasnt personal to me. I just see worse behaviour in adults tbh. Anyone replying in a nasty manner only confirms this point. Many thanks.

Unemployment benefit is 3% of total benefit spending. 6% if you don't count the state pension.
People really should rely on facts rather than the Daily Fail.

Can i point out since (single mum) caught your attention which i thought it might. I am a single mum, i do get benefits, and my circumstance was not to have sex and be alone. The father became ill and sadly is no longer around. I dont believe that should matter though. However someone becomes a single parent or becomes to be on benefits will always be a sad story- disabled, illness, abuse etc. Most single parents are 'mums' because they are the ones more often to take on the full responsibility of their child, that doesnt make them bad parents. And what ever the reason a person is on benefits, the community should be helping support each other, i give back to my community by supporting people and caring about others and helping them.

English language I am shocked and horrified by your totally ignorant comments. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Single mum you are spot on about teenagers. I have 4 children 2 of whom are now grown, 1 teenager and a young'un who thinks he's a teenager. Over the years ive had countless teenagers trapesing through my house. My kids have often told me of rudeness and ignorance directed at them by so called adults. If people just had a little more tolerance and spoke to the kids as a normal human being I have absolutely no doubt that they will get respect back. Not all teenagers are monsters. You will always have rogue teens but we also have rogue adults.

Iwouldn't be surprised if English Language, who thinks the poor shouldn't have children, also complains about the need for immigration to keep the British society functioning. Being able to hold two contradictory opinions at the same time is of course the defintion of genius.
