Twelve and thirteen-year olds are an entirely different story. “Pranks,” like the one you refer to above, are inexcusable. True, temperaments and natures vary and not all boys are created equal, so that parents are not necessarily to blame for their offspring’s behavior… but failure to chastise them in the strongest of terms will only lead to more trouble down the line.

Let’s hope that the problematic youngsters were dealt with in a manner that will foster their growth and maturity in the right direction, and that the victim of their aggression has completely recovered from the trauma.
