If my son did that to me (he wouldn't), he'd be looking for a new place to live.

That was man to man talk. Maybe son need a warm advice from dad, but dad it turn to cold beast.

A symptom of the breaking down of morality and civility, particularly among certain youths.

Maybe the kid was just fed up?

Well, if the kid did better in school, and wasn't a punk, he would've known that stab wounds don't HEAL people.

If the dad was at fault for abusive behavior, well, that's what happens I guess.

But no matter what happens, we can all agree, this article isn't complete and lacks a lot of vital information. All we can do is speculate.

Fantastic writing as usual.
