I dont think there are more in Lakewood, but kids who grow up in more religious families tend to go way farther then if a person grew up in "less" frum family that I do agree with.

Like a rubber band - the harder you pull back, the farther they fly. :'(
Maybe we shoul feed our kids chazer now so they don't do drugs in 10 years.  ::) ::)
The Modox community has no kids off the derech and the irriligious do not have rebellious teenagers.
Maybe we should all go frei.  :P :P
Then all the Lakewood Haters on this Forum will love us.
They won't judge us by the way we dress (or lack thereof)or our lifestyle. (Kollel, Drug abuse, Chillul Shabbos etc.[In that order])

I think you are missing the point a little. I have 0 against lakewood, I am making a general statement, it just so happens it is in the Lakewood thread.

Its a different pot. I'm not discussing policies of accepting kids.

I feel that in very religious place such as lakewood, there has be to some system in place that gives flexibility to kids that aren't able to hold to such high levels of halacha. Instead of only having systems in place for off the derech kids, they should look into prevention.

Its the unrelenting bashing of kollel people that needs to stop. I know you like them, respect them etc bla bla.
AFAIK They are the one group the least deserving of criticism, whether its their "attitude" their "chinuch" etc. If your out to fix the world why contuinuesly focus on those who learn in kollel? Its always something that those "Lakewood" people are doing wrong....
It dosent bother anyone whats going on in Monsey, Flatbush, Crown hights, Cle, yerushalayim etc. Its Lakewood thats the sorce of all evil.

Good L-rd, can't you read?! We are NOT bashing kollel people. We are NOT bashing Lakewood people. In fact, we are not "bashing" anyone. judahk88, jaywhy, and I are making a very simple point: statistically, in ANY community, there is trend among off-the-derech kids: the more frum the family, the further the kid goes, R"L. "The greater they are, the harder they fall", and all that.

Please take that humongous, kollel-shaped chip off your shoulder. The only place where people are attacking kollel people - as of right now - is in your imagination. So lighten up, okay?

I lived in Lakewood. I lived and breathed the local politics. I've spent countless hours in the offices of various yeshivas (doing volunteer work), rubbing shoulders with some of the top brass in the community.

My sources? Myself. My own personal experiences, observations, and interactions. I think that's good enough.


Well, I've spent countless late-night hours sitting in the office of Yeshiva Ketana, talking community politics with the aforementioned "top brass". Those candid, open, shooting-the-breeze conversations put any mikva schmooze to shame.
And what pisses me off most of all about kollel people.... just who do you think it is that is paying for you to sit in kollel, anyway?! Other kollel people?!
As I pointed out in the post you so helpfully linked to, I am not (yet) a "Lakewood hater", per se. Although it is people like you that are pushing me more and more in that direction.
Again, I'm not some ignorant hater from Flatbush. I'm someone who used to live in Lakewood, who experienced all this firsthand.
Oh, and I'm in kollel, too. So they are, indeed, not necessary "holier than me". The difference is... I also work on the side, since I understand that the whole world isn't magiya li.
Need I say more.  ::) ::) You're a very "Knowledgable Locally Grown Hater" Ashrei Rabach shelamdach Torah!  ::) ::)

First of all after all those times saying he is not a hater, He says I'm not an Ignorant hater from Flatbush but rather a hater from Lakewood w/ major connections  ::) ::) :P
Second, I never had to announce that I'm not an anti-Semite.
Dunno why but nobody ever confused me with one.  ::) ::)

...And right on cue, Mimi K. comes charging in, machete swinging, with more unprovoked, hate-ridden comments. I actually try my best to love Lakewooders, but it's people like you who really give me a run for my money.

Clearly, you can't read, either:
The only place where people are attacking kollel people - as of right now - is in your imagination. So lighten up, okay?

I'm not talking about yesterday. I'm not talking about last week. I'm not talking about any time in the past. I am saying that right now, TODAY, nobody is bashing Lakewood. In THIS argument, we are making simple point that applies to Jewish communities everywhere. So like I said to churnbabychurn:
 
Please take that humongous, kollel-shaped chip off your shoulder.
It really doesn't look good on you.
