Everyone's so quick to point the finger and judge..when in reality it was your kids calling him for it. So if you did your job as adults and mentors then there wouldn't be any problems would there? Before you start judging and criticizing someone you don't know take a step back and reevaluate yourself. You sound so cool calling a kid 30+ years younger then you a scum or dirtbag.
