Our young can have sex at any time. This complicates life. In the past, it took discipline and responsibility to discourage sex. Now, developments in birth and abortion control along with sex education in public schools has made juvenile intercourse the new big easy. We have a growing problem. Children need to learn discipline and responsibility. As we make life easier we lessen the need for disciplined and responsible behavior. The amount of obesity in America is the result of a generous supply of food and the lack of disciplining young hunger. Add the problems that have come with the easy access to information and the growing trouble with dishonesty and porn on the Internet. Human weakness is an immutable part of our nature and we must remember that discipline and responsibility are remedies not the cure.
