HOW DO YOU DISCIPLINE YOUR CHILDREN AND TEACH THEM RESPECT
THERE IS ENOUGH BLAME TO GO AROUND
Today we begin a four part series on raising loving and respectable children. We invite each of you to share your thoughts and ideas, and we know that you do have lots of them and we will include as many of them as possible in this series. We all can learn from each other and by sharing your experiences it might be just the one thing another parent could use to help teach their child respect and save their life.
We are living in very difficult times and raising Children is made more difficult for a variety of reasons and non-more so than the shrinking economy. It is causing heart-aches, pain and stresses in a lot of families, and sometimes causes them to over react and make very bad decisions that have a negative effect on their children and family life.
Our Children are under a lot of pressure and they are acting it out in the homes, schools, streets and everywhere else with all sorts of violent acts. When this begins to happen, people start point fingers and blaming others. There is enough blame to go around when some say that it is liberalism that has caused the violence. Others say that it is the removal of prayer from our schools. Some say it is the steady stream of violence we see in the movies, on the nightly news cast, on all sorts of TV Programs and especially the video games.
There are still others who blame the government for overtaxing its citizens, and forcing parents to have to abandon their children for the workplace.
When it comes to our children using guns to settle their differences, there are those who would blame the gun manufacturers and the gun dealers. But no where do we see anyone taking responsibility for what has happened. Not the parents, schools, churches, business, government or the youth themselves. Our U.S. Congress refuses to pass sensible Gun Laws that could be a help in stopping some of the Gun Violence, but No; everyone wants to place the blame on someone else.
It is time that we as parents begin to accept the major portion of responsibility and take control of our children’s lives and get the government out of our homes and bedrooms. We as parents are responsible for raising our children and it does take the whole community to be involved and always willing to lend a helping hand.
Now I encourage each one of you to share some of your experiences in raising your own children and we will begin posting them in part two of “PARENT’S RESPONSIBILITY.” Part Two will be posted on Thursday June 20, 2013.
