Usually known for its beauty and affluent lifestyle, La Jolla took center stage last night when a 14-year-old minor was rescued from a canyon.

He was apparently hiking and got lost — he was by himself. He was reunited with his parents, who were waiting for him when the chopper brought him back to safety.

So, where were the parents when he took off? Didn’t they know that he wasn’t home? When I was a teen, and it’s not that long ago, my parents had to know where I was practically 24/7.

I can’t understand some of the parents out there today … where are their priorities … I understand that many families have two working parents, and things are hectic … but if you are going to have kids, please be responsible. Whatever happened to that saying “It’s 10 p.m … do you know where your kids are?”

I wonder how many parents out there could answer that question honestly? Today, teens are having sex and experimenting with drugs and getting into trouble in general, much earlier than you might think. The stats are on the rise on both accounts.

Parents, please, take time out from doing your own thing to spend quality time with your kids. Isn’t that why you had them in the first place?

    C’mon, how old are you? You really sound like a senior-aged blowhard, “when I was l little, parents always knew where their teenagers were…” – stop it. The kid was 14. He wasn’t doing drugs or having sex, he was hiking. Everybody needs to relax and stop inventing things to be afraid of.
