“I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.”
I’m sorry but was anyone listening when Whitney belted out the part about us teaching them? I guess not because this generation is rude, crude and an embarrassment. I’ll give them credit for doing one thing right though. They’re an embarrassment to all races, not just minorities. Growing up I remember having rules to follow about how to act when I was in public. As I grew up these rules changed with me as I got older. I learned there were certain things you didn’t talk about in public. Didn’t matter if you were with your parents, or with your girlfriends. What you talked about behind closed doors, stayed behind closed doors!
But these little hoodrats just don’t seem to care about looking classy. They think it’s cute to be trashy in public. They don’t understand that by talking about who they’ve been with, how well he eats it, and how good his thing was they just disrespect themselves and their parents. The sad part is their parents either don’t care or don’t have a clue what their kids are like. Every day it seems like there’s another story coming out about the decline of today’s youth. 15 year old Amanda Todd committed suicide because she was being cyber bullied after making the mistake of flashing a boy online (http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/12/world/americas/canada-teen-bullying/index.html). 12 year old Autumn Pasquale was killed by two boys all over a BMX bike (http://anuddercast.com/blog/2012/10/23/everyones-autumn/). And it’s not just the kids; parents are just as bad if not worse. South Florida mom charged with aggravated assault for beating her 15 year old daughter with a tire iron (http://www.wsvn.com/news/articles/local/21008395454363/mother-accused-of-abusing-child-with-tire-iron/). A teen mom and her boyfriend duct taping a 2 year old to the wall (http://abcnews.go.com/US/shocking-photos-reveal-abused-toddler-duct-taped-wall/story?id=11798328#.UIikYO-gGdw).
SERIOUSLY?!! What is going on with people these days?!! I just don’t understand what goes through their heads. Now I’m a psychology major, so my job is to spend time walking through people’s heads. And that can get mighty interesting. But no matter how much I learn I just can’t figure out why in the hell people are the way they are these days. You’ve got people almost beating the hell out of their friends because they disagree on who to vote for. People running around more worried about getting the hot new gadget, instead of making sure their kids are doing well in school. You got absentee parents wondering why their good boy or good girl ended up that way. “He/She was a good kid I never would’ve expected something like this.” Yeah how many times have we heard that line! Know why you don’t understand, BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT THERE! These people don’t take the time to sit down and talk to their kids.
Something as simple as “how was your day honey?” can make a difference. We’ve got parents out there more concerned with getting “white girl wasted” rather than spend time with their damn kids. Oh you’re real quick to push your troubled kid on somebody else as long as you can make it to happy hour in time. I get it that birth control is only 99.99% effective, but we all know the risks that come when you have sex. I’m not saying don’t have sex. All I’m saying is when you make a baby those partying days are over. Doesn’t mean your life is over, just means your priorities need to change. Especially if you’ve got a kid with behavioral or drug issues. Your kid gets accused of being a bully, step up and take responsibility to help them change. Your kid gets busted for being drunk or high, step up and take responsibility to help them change. Your kid gets expelled for fighting, step up and take responsibility to help them change. Don’t just sit there and go “oh it’ll be okay.” No it won’t be okay! Until these absentee parents step up and start acting like parents, we are all screwed!
