“Parents should be the chief law enforcement officer of their home and with their children. It is time that parents be parents again and not just friends to their children. Know your children’s friends, where they’re going, who they’re hanging out with, know what they’re doing, what they’re texting. What they’re saying on their phones or computers, social media. Get involved in your child’s life before it’s too late.”

–Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly during a Feb. 8 news conference.
