Agreed. Rules and boundaries are needed for all children/teenagers whether they are goth or not. It's not their appearance that needs to be focused on but their behaviour and attitude. Respect, kindness, imagination and even ambition, are all good things to instil in children as well as fostering their ability to work alongside people, show an interest in others, caring for others and having a work-ethic.
