Rev. Dr. Harrison’s Advice to Parents: Must-Read!



In a recent episode of “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News, Laura Ingraham invited Reverend Doctor Charles Harrison, senior pastor of Barnes United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, to discuss the alarming trend of youth violence. Laura highlighted several disturbing incidents involving teenagers committing brutal crimes, questioning the apparent disregard for human life among young people.

Rev. Harrison emphasized the crucial role of parenting in addressing this issue. “Parents have to start being parents and not trying to be the friends of their children,” he stated. He pointed out that many parents in larger cities are failing to set boundaries and hold their children accountable, which contributes to the escalating violence.

Laura concurred, sharing her own parenting philosophy: “I’m not your friend. I’m your mother.” She expressed concern over the tendency of young perpetrators to film their attacks and even brag about them on social media, indicating a lack of fear of consequences.

Rev. Harrison agreed, highlighting the absence of accountability both at home and in the judicial system. “If you have no consequences at home, you have no consequences when it comes to the judicial system,” he said, stressing the need for accountability to deter further escalation of youth violence.

Laura commended Rev. Harrison for his dedication to protecting young people and thanked him for his insights. The discussion shed light on the pressing issue of youth violence and the vital role of responsible parenting in curbing this disturbing trend.
