#lp This was one of the major highlights of my weekend. I took two young fellas who had been labeled “bad” because of their behavior, and in less than a day inspired them to be better. We have a great opportunity to find a healthier way to address our kids about their behavior. Rather than scolding them, model the behavior you’d like to see from them. Set clear boundaries… Make understandable and simple requests… And convey the incentives and/or consequences. Make sure they face those consequences and/or reap the benefits once they make a clear choice of how they will respond. They’re not bad. They just lack the concept of structure. If we can restore the idea of it taking a village to raise a child, maybe we can stop writing off the “bad” kids and show them that, through love, they too can live and learn in greatness.

Days after Michael Brown’s death, Ferguson looks like a war zone

A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.

But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.

Years of tension have reached a boiling point
