   Condoms in High School

Oh no, someone might have sex

Or, God forbid, do drugs

To all those people who think sex or drugs is the problem:

It's not

It's you people

Thinking the problems are in the kids

Thinking the outlets are the problems

Sorry, it's your fault

You created the kids

You destroyed their world

And you expect them to be good

"Do as I say not as I do"

Maybe the first step to solving the problem

Is taking part of the blame

Or maybe this is too real

For you to take seriously.

I agree with you. But also with mcpanicfanic that we as young adults can make the right choices on our own. Parents must stop coddling their kids and tell them why things are bad exactly- not just forbid doing drugs or having sex

Or kids can think for themselves and not do stuff they know is bad for them. Like drugs and alcohol. DERRRRR
