Bill Cosby Says Kids Need Family To Succeed
Bill Cosby says problems plaguing teens stem from a lack of parenting:
“What I see from today’s kids is no love. No teaching. No respect. We are allowing CDs, BET, MTV and all of the rest of them to make our children feel good about animalistic behavior. That is insane. I think these children are being given misrepresentations of love due to a lack of parenting. That is why in lower-economic neighborhoods you often see children and young adults fall into a world of murder, drug dealing and anger. And I’m not just talking about blacks or kids in urban cities like (others) would have you believe. I am talking about all colors.
When asked how problems could be rectified, Cosby said in an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he thought education and family are key:
“But young people also need to know about responsibility. We need to ask parents what they think success is. We also need to teach children that education is the way to get out of whatever circumstances they come from.”
