stronger than that of your parents, and when the parents are out working or studying most of the day, there's only so much time they have with these kids to try to instill good values in them.
But as a parent, you should also know who your kid is hanging out with, you're supposed to be involved in his life.
Also, if your kid is the type to do this sort of crap, then there will be signs. If all the kid does is heckle people, then really, it's not the end of the world. But if it's worse, then you're bound to notice something. It's not really the straight A student, the nicely mannered, polite and respectful kid that will do this.
