Raise your kids right!
Posted 02 September 2012 - 03:21 AM
I was absolutely appalled. I actually shouted "Oh my god!" and didn't even mean to. I cannot believe that this little boy did this. How are their parents raising these kids? That's disgusting. I wish I knew which apartment he lived in and who his parents were.
I just ran to the gas station with my daughter real quick and returned very shortly, the small group of children were still playing. As I was parking, my window was down, I noticed the older boy (around 16) walked up to another little boy with the same toy gun, pointed it at him and said "I'll shoot you!" Now I know where the younger boy is getting it from. Please... I am telling as many people as I can about this because I simply can't believe the direction that this generation is heading. I thrive to raise my daughter right and I absolutely do not want her being raised in a generation like this.
Please, raise your children and pay close attention to them, love them, take pride in them, and DON'T GIVE UP ON THEM! Your children are the FUTURE of our race! I hope one day to meet these kids parents. This is not the only thing I've noticed, they are extremely disruptive of the apartments property. The other day I saw they intentionally breaking the sprinkler systems and spraying them at parked cars.

All it takes is one generation that chooses not to pass on traditional values to their kids, then you end up with brats who produce more brats because they were never taught how to raise a child in the first place. And so on...
(*) 'parent' here is a generic term for whichever figure(s) a child is most exposed to, be it a father and mother or Bevis & Butthead.

I recently had my neices so called gangsta bfriend over and he wanted to kill a chicken.. I showed him how and he finally did it but it nearly took him out.... I had killed many animals to eat when i was younger. We protect them way to hard when they are young. we tell them thier uncle that jumped off a building fell we tell them lie after lie about death. and when given a chance to make the right choice about life and death they lie to themselves. Kids in my experience can handle the truth and a little carnage when they are very young. it scars them but they understand the gravity a bit better. some are just f'd up and there was never anything we could do about ted bundy. My advice is stop lying to them about the serious things. there is nothing wrong with telling them chicken little is whats for dinner. or that frank didnt care about himself or anyone else so he jumped off a bridge and really hurt grandma bad when he did it. They need to learn early that there is no do over for certain things. and that what any of us do can cause very real pain.
But you know the real key?
let them go with you have them help cook dinner. whatever your doing even if its dangerous. they will mimic the kind of respect you show things and learn from it. Kids just want thier parents to do things with them anything... even if it isnt play. I sure busted alot of knuckles and hurt myself alot. but i loved nothing more than helping dad work on a car. My own daughter i have discovered takes those opportunities to talk to me about everything. wow non playtime = talk time. it just comes out i dont even have to ask
I learned about a bully trouble sleeping her new best friend. the bruise on the girl in class. its like having dr phil on your couch making your kid talk to you. and i have an extra pair of small hands for the work on the house i am doing.

I have new neighbours above me, can't be much older then 20, the previous one were 90 years old, deaf and active but i never did hear them, the new i can already hear before i get inside...
Sometimes i just go outside to hear some quiet.
This is the age of being loud and selfish and not care for others...
I think i'm getting old

Not too long ago, my wife saw a picture on a girls facebook page whom we used to go to high school with. The picture was of some male, holding her NEWBORN baby in his hand with a REAL handgun in the babies lap and holding up a gang sign. It struck my wife and I and we reported it to facebook. Call us over reacting but in my opinion, she should face criminal charges for that. Its horrible knowing parents intentionally raise their children to be monsters. It only makes me love and cherish my daughter more and take pride in everything she does.

Do I have to ask - in whose opinion of right? What is the source of right, what is the source of morals? Why not just call the problem out in it's overall scope: remove the true source of righteousness, & morallity goes with it ... and it will amplify through the generations if not fixed.
Raise your kids right!

"Many clever men like you have trusted to civilization. Many clever Babylonians, many clever Egyptians, many clever men at the end of Rome. Can you tell me, in a world that is flagrant with the failures of civilisation, what there is particularly immortal about yours?"

hehehe.. lets debate that now.
The causes may be debatable...
I say it is the fault of Reality TV and Celebrities
like i just said. Monkey see, Mokey Do
in the 50s TV shows hinted on domestic Violence, and there was a lot more reports at that time of men hitting their wifes.
now you got shows where dumb people are famous because they sleep with people on camera, so people will be dumb and make videos in hopes of being famous too.
but all goes to how your parents raised you and how you are going to decide if your going to learn from their mistakes or just repeat them.
my 3yo reads better than some high school kids I bet.. now is that the school or the parents fault? i say parents becasue my kid really hasnt been to any school and only knows what Mom and I teach him.

The 1950s gave us assorted Playhouses, game shows, Theatres, variety shows, and westerns. The only show I can recall that "hinted on domestic violence" was the Honeymooners.
I suppose it's possible that reports of men hitting their wives increased due to Ralph threatening to send Alice to the moon, but I'm skeptical.

•In I Love Lucy, Ricky Ricardo repeatedly turned Lucy over his knee and spanked her like a child after a particularly harebrained scheme. May count as Values Dissonance to modern audiences since at the time it was meant to be seen as funny.
-ohh last night my 3yo boy saw me getting water for my wife. I walked in the other room to give it to her and came back to check on the PC in the kitchen and get some water for me and he was walking up to give me a cup of water he poured! how cute.

if your kid is all polite and cant fire badwords and stuff cos you never taught them, then my kid will sue your kid. what my kid gotta lose. he is all happy being rude and kicking arses all around. what i gotta lose as a parent. i love how my kid how hes grown just like me and my attitude and thinking will never change cos thats how i am
if you wanna raise your kid and don't pass them your moral values and ethics. let them learn everything. let them know the ways of your society. let them understand how to tackle problems and handle situations like they arises. don't raise your kids how you want them to be. Raise them how they are needed to be raised and that's not how you think the way it is. i know its sad but if you live in a world where people shoot people, then raise your kid in a way that he can dodge bullets and shoot entire hood in a single bullet.
