I am concerned about the future!
In a world where texting pictures of cock n’ balls and watching people get fist fucked in the ass is of the norm, we have reason to be concerned! I am not a parent but find it equally as appalling that these things I just named are available to people of all ages with the touch, or click rather, of a button. These things may sound horrifying to some of you…especially any of you older than me. But be assured…people, including children! are being desensitized to this crap every day. When little Annie refuses a Cleveland Steamer and is later ridiculed by her peers because “C’mon! Everyone is doing it!” maybe you will start to get as scared as I have become! I am attempting a humorous spin to this because quite frankly any other way leaves me panicked and completely disgusted. But similar scenarios ARE real!
I believe we live in a time where parenting is of the utmost importance and unfortunately the term “parenting” has become a joke. People have kids like it was a sport. They want to bare children instead of working on themselves thinking that will solve all their problems. People just don’t seem to give a damn about offering guidance to their children any more. This makes me sad. All too often I see people expose their children to things they never should! Drugs, alcohol, bad language, irresponsibility, lying, etc…, etc… I could go on and on! Do you really think its okay to get drunk around your children? Do you really think its okay to take your kids to Las Vegas- the City of Sin!?
I understand you can’t shield your children from everything and I don’t think you should! However, choosing to act in a respectful way around your kids will go far. You may not think you’re damaging them by the things you do but trust me, you are. Kids need consistency and structure. They also need clear-minded, sound guidance. If you can’t contain your “adult” lifestyle long enough to properly raise your kids please don’t have any. If you can’t get along with your child’s mother/father please don’t have any. And if you’re not willing to be the best parent you can be PLEASE do not have children!
Disgusting acts and psychological strains are becoming more and more common place. I am scared to see what my generation’s children will grow up to be like. I hope that by then their kids will see the damage that has been done and work to reverse it. Better yet, I hope my generation (and others before me) will begin to do a better job and not accept reality as the norm. The norm is becoming quite scary and we should not accept it nor allow it.
