Troubled Teens: THE FIX

Dr. John Mayer

Troubled Teens: THE FIX – Say it Ain’t So, GEORGE! (Pataki)

Dr. Mayer riles against the snide remarks from former Gov. George Pataki of New York where he (Pataki) flippantly chided not only Chicago but also the nation on not being proactive on curbing violence. Mayer discusses the real state of crime in our society, especially youth crime, and the programs that are being effective to control and stem the tide of crime. Mayer cites parent involvement in teens’ lives as a core solution calling for parents to go back to basic parenting when it comes to teens.
