I dont work with teens anymore because so many are seriously selfish and violent. The girls are downright evil to each other and the violence knows no bounds.

We are raising a bunch of psychopathic narcissists who have no conscious to what's right or wrong anymore

Well if you watch any of this reality TV, you'll see where they get it from. What GOOD role model do these kids (especially girls) have? Nobody. I can't even think of one right now.

If you're a parent and you are looking to reality TV to be a role model to your children then you're doing it all wrong.

To add to my last comment, my parents highlighted people in my life that would make good role models. They introduced me to authors, philosophers, and people who just did good things in life to let me see people I would aspire to be like. If a parent is not doing that and their kids lives become engulfed in TV, that is hardly the fault of the TV.

Not only the girls...boys as well. It just is a bigger shock when it is girls...girls are dainty, kind, and all that other bs...they are in reality violent and mean spirited and selfish. I am mother and grandmother of two of each...

Perhaps she had a valid reason for breaking off her association and they kept her quiet from telling anyone why.

That does make sense.
Your micro-bio is half-empty

Everybody is hoping for a better explanation, but we probably won't get one until the other girl goes to trial, if then.

Sadly kids aren't held accountable for anything anymore. Parents don't have any follow through, because God forbid they actually be put out in order to discipline their child. Usually discipline is harder on the parent then the child, it's called parenting, if you dont plan on doing it for 18+ years, at 100% then DON"t have kids!

I think a big part of the problem is that kids aren't being taught consequences for bad behavior. They're not taught empathy. What ever happen to the lesson of treat others the way you'd want to be treated. If for once, these kids put themselves in other peoples shoes, say ask themselves how they'd feel if they were bullied and mistreated, maybe they'd think before acting so violently.

I agree; our society is so insecure that we won't admit we are raising bad kids.

We're afraid of using shame as a teaching tool when they're young. I'm only 28, but when I tried to lie about things as a young child, my parents shamed me. Once, I was playing with the family dog and thought it would be a good idea to try to ride around on her back. I was three years old and the dog was a toy poodle. I hurt the dog, and my mom asked me how I would feel if someone much larger tried to sit on me. I can still feel the shame and remourse I felt. It teaches empathy. Children are naturally a bit narcissistic. You have to direct their attention to how other people feel. It won't hurt them and it keeps them from hurting others.

I agree with ktm. Children are totally inward looking and selfish when they are young. That's how their minds are programmed. But teaching them that inflicting pain and hurt on others, animal or human, carries a consequence, is part of reprogramming. You don't need to use violence to do it. Sitting down with the kids and using examples, such as ktm's parents did, really does work. If the child is resistant, or does not learn, then look into professional help. My three kids were normal; they fought and hurt each other with words, but with lots of work and a million "conferences" they have grown into wonderful adults.

they should be tried as adults , and given life no parole , sounds like it was planned ,,,wonder if these two girls planned on life behind bars ?

This is obviously an extremely disturbing, sad story and these girls have some serious mental issues, but it makes me wonder about the way the new generation is perceiving things. We now live in a world where things like this happen, but why?! Is it because of how the media glorifies murder cases? And the murderers themselves? I'm not saying that all kids these days think this way, and like I said these girls obviously have major mental flaws... but maybe the media should stop turning murders into celebrities and take some accountability for what they are showing children who may not be developed enough to fully understand the situation. Just a thought.

The problem is this is not new. I've read dozens of stories like this. Bullying is over the top especially among young women and teens.

This is what the death penalty is for. If you kill someone because you didn't want to be their friend, there is no rehabilitating that. The two young murderers can never be integrated into society ever again. Life in prison is no quality of life for them; it's time for a couple of lethal injections by the state.

They can't be executed. The US SC ruled that killers who commit murders before their 18th birthday cannot receive the death penalty. That is what saved Lee Boyd Malvo (DC Sniper) in Virginia.

Depraved girls,mentally disturbed individuals! Where do they get their ideas from?? Lock em up!!
08:42 AM on 06/04/2013
Not depraved, they learned their values and morality on Facebook, and by watching their role models like Lindsay Lohan. They both should be tried as adults.
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

im guessing their behavior was learned from their parents .

I think life in prison would almost be to good for them. sick society

life in a mental institution would be my recommendation. boy, if i killed everyone with whom i don't want to be "friends" anymore.....where is this country, this world going..?????

First hopefully Shoaf the Oaf and her mystery numb brain side kick will be found guilty of murder not a watered down charge. Then Skylar's parents should decide on the penalty and their "recommendation" whatever they want done with these two rotten brats should be strongly considered by the "system." Heartfelt sympathy to Skylar's family, to hell with the sneaky, dirty, murdering monsters disguised as "normal" teenage girls. RIP Skylar RIP beautiful innocent child.

well, now, you won't have to worry about these girls getting punished for murder. see, in our country, if you're young and pretty? they will get probation, maybe serve 5 years, cause all the men involved will be feeling sorry for them, they look at these girls and say to themselves "that could have been my little angel" and then there's the typical male attitude, "well, if I help her out, maybe she'll come look me up when this is all over." Sick and Sad, but that's how it goes.
10:46 AM on 06/04/2013
You're delirious. No, that is NOT how it goes, as you say. How do you know their trial will consist of a jury of all men? I feel sorry for you and your distorted thinking.
Time bears away all things...

They probably want their mommies now. Since they are teenagers, I suppose their lawyers will ask the court to be lenient because well, they're young and can be rehabilitated, right? I hope the judge sees through their fake sorry tears for what it really is. They're just sad they got caught. Have to wonder what their own parents have to say about these girls. We all know what the victim's father had to say....
