Steven Wright: Gang prevention starts with the parents

February 20, 2014 

In the Feb. 13 edition, the letter “Unite to fight gangs” (Page A5) talks about having support from schools, clubs, community organizations and others to help children from joining gangs. Nowhere did I read that parents are responsible to control their children and to provide them with the guidance that is needed to keep them out of gangs and criminal activity.
