Noun 1. pastime - a diversion that occupies one's time and thoughts (usually pleasantly)... [Middle English passe tyme, translation of French passe temps : passer, to pass + temps, time].
If stealing cars by youths has become a pastime, who has been sleeping on the job of raising these kids and has let them turn into lawless freaks who have lost any sense of right and wrong? To parents who claim they have taught them right from wrong, I say not on your life! They have failed in the one task which all parents must fulfill if they deserve the name of parent, that is to get the children, at an early age, to understand that consequences of anti-social, destructive and disrespectful behavior are severe and that good behavior towards other human beings is its own reward... END OF STORY. No more excuses about living in poor conditions, and having less. LESS IS MORE.
