Teach respect of women

Published: Tuesday, March 4, 2014 5:30 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

In a recent Northwest Herald article, the issue of untested rape kits across the country was addressed.

The issue should not be that of the laboratory, but the how and why rape has become so prevalent in the U.S.

Parents, do not assume your sons will grow up treating women with the respect they deserve, and not objects for the taking, unless you make certain they are taught properly.

Mothers, you do not want your son growing up to be a rapist.

Fathers, you do not want your daughter to be the victim.

As the old song goes, teach your children well.
