heres a parents comments about their son being a juggalo – it breaks my heart how a good kid can now go on a bad path by following the crowed and becoming a juggalo .
I have a 13 year old son who attends school here on the reservation (no its not a forgien country). These “juggalos” are a huge problem here as well. The Canyon Day junior High School had to take action to completely ban, any type of association with this band/group, “ICP”.
My own child was getting caught up in the situation, he was making self tattoos on his body, wearing the clothing under his uniform, and had his ipod on 24-7. Its almost like he was being ‘brainwashed‘. His grades droped dramatically in school, his entire attitude was negative. I honestly believe listening to this music had a lot to do with it.
As a parent I took responsibility and sat down with my son and listened to the music, from what I could hear and understand the music ‘defies authority’, encourages ‘self mutilation’, and was singing about ‘God’. Ok i don’t think it was gospel music, and don’t think it was our lord and savior ‘God’, that they were singing about.
I have since taken his ipod away and have erased the memory off of our computer. In hopes that this will keep him from listening to the music. 13 years old is a hard age and my son did not need this negative type of influence. As a parents we need to be more aware of what our children are listening to. I did know but did not make an effort to listen, until it got out of hand.
