Pull the plug on naked Twitter teens
Fox News ^ | Saturday, March 22, 2014 | Dr. Keith Ablow

What may be news, however, is that parents of such teenagers would need a reminder of how to respond when their sons and daughters circulate photographs of themselves drunk, passed out or in various stages of undress.

Here’s what the parents of all the young people who fed the @LIPartyStories inappropriate images of themselves should do: Confiscate their phones, shut down their Twitter and Facebook accounts and test them randomly for drugs and alcohol every two or three weeks for the next year. Each positive test should result in being grounded for a month. And every one of the teenagers directly involved should be in psychotherapy.

School administrators should suspend each and every one of them from school for two weeks and admit them back to school only with a note from a psychologist or psychiatrist or licensed social worker stating that the student has begun treatment.

Why take such seemingly dramatic steps? Because every, single teenager who sent out a photograph of himself or herself involved in sex or obviously drunk or on drugs via @LIPartyStories is emotionally disordered -- probably suffering with one or more symptoms of a brewing personality disorder (narcissistic personality disorder), very possibly depressed, likely abusing alcohol or drugs or both and very likely addicted to at least one very potent drug: the Internet.

The problem with therapy is that often the caregivers have the very same affliction and just make it worse for the patient. Go to any drug or alcohol facility and you’ll find the caregivers are eith all ex-drugees or alcoholics or are still suffering from it...

You DO realize, don’t you, what the “millenials” consider being grounded?

I went with a relative to a Baptist church in Tulsa, last night, for their Celebrate Recovery program, and from what I saw, it didn’t seem that way.

There also was a neighbor that moved in nearby and I found out that she was working at a recovery facility and she was a former drug addict. In just the few weeks that she’s been in the neighborhood, she already zeroed in on a relative (here) that is not doing well “in recovery” and she was able to do more to help (it seemed to me) than we’ve been able to do in a couple of years.

NOW ... here I’m talking about voluntary programs, but I’ve also seen that the “mandated programs” where the person is forced into the program by the legal system, you will see many there who are still doing their drugs right in the middle of the program itself.

But, no one can cut through the drug addicts excises quicker than a former addict who is working with them. That’s what I’ve seen.

This is really good tough love. The young lady who gets disciplined this way at age 16 will scream bloody murder. Then, at 26, when she desperately wants to become an associate in a prestigious law firm, she’ll thank God for the prescience of her loving parents, especially when she sees friends whose career hopes were ruined by such postings.

In the “New Culture”, doing nothing is doing something.

I beat my kids up continuously for this failing. They continue to default to the cultural norms.

It seems like every generation goes out of it's way to try to out shock the previous generation's shocking behavior.
I've come to the conclusion that it is more of a pendulum type of movement and we happen to be in the destructive swing.

Back in my day, when I did something stupid and shameful, I got the crap beat out of me, and then I had so many chores for so long, it was six inches taller before I tasted freedom.

However I was not so Stupid, that it only happened once, my younger brother got the benefit of my demise, of course that was the plan all along.

And of course I didn’t even think about running away, I learned that through my older brother.

I don’t know where to “start” on the so-called New Culture, or what I would call Post-Modernism. I could start and then I wouldn’t stop for a long time.

The subject is quite involved and it’s pervasive and extensive ... and from what I can see in the Bible, it’s leading directly into the coming Apocalypse. This is not just a “cycle” that all generations go through and it’s not just another stage in society, which is supposedly “progressing” - but it’s a head-long rush into destruction.

Agree with your reply. In many recovery programs, it is a requirement to get a councilers job, that the counciler has a certain number of years under his/her belt, as a recovering addict.

The future of America. These are the new Americans that will pay for social security and pay off 17 trillion, and climbing, debt.

I can agree with that as long as they are recovered. If they’re still an addict they uually become an enabler. That’s what I’ve seen. Unfortunately too many times.

Yeah, you’re right on the issue of whether they are recovered or not. I wanted to make sure that this relative was talking to a truly recovered addict - or else, she was going to be “off-limits”. But, I assured myself that this is the case.

And back in those days when we did something stupid our friends didn't video record it and post it on Facebook for the whole world to see. :^)

We only got caught if a neighbor tattled...

That is going to be one hell of an expensive proposition under Zerocare.

I doubt that the parents are willing to pay for such treatment.

I would take the said offending naked and drunk party shot, blow it up to poster size and hang it on the refrigerator.

You can treat the teens, sure.

The photos? They are already on all the sites you don’t want them to be, in a matter of days. Too late on that one.
