guilt. These school systems and teachers whine and complain every year, about how tough it is to be a teacher. They label our children with ADD and
ADHD. They label them disruptive, say things like these kids are the not children of 20 to 30 years ago. Really? NO S#!T! These kids got it much
more harder than the generations previous to them.
I personaly feel its a combination of things.
Government, for taking away parents rights to be parents. IE Disciplining you're child. Currently, as a parent, the child knows you have little to
know authority over them. And all it would take to put you, the parent, back in you're place would be a few crocodile tears and a phonecall.
Parents, for not being around as much. Partly due to they cannot, because you need to work to support you're family - but also for the ones who
come home from work, and "are just too tired or stressed" to address things and spend time teaching their kids the stuff you're not told in school.
Manners, respect, understanding .... etc.
The Media, for creating images of what girls and boy's should be, and how they should act. Great examples are the tweens magazines. The media
does an excelent job at teaching kids that they are the centre of the universe, and it's all about them. And that the important things in life are
how many girls you sleep with, which celiberaty is dating who, and which company's just produced the latest sports car.
The Medical Establishment, For being incapable of understanding that people are unique people, and think different things, and act in different
ways. For creating a profile for "normal people" which under 20% of the population actualy fit under (these people are best described as those
condisderd "normal") And classing everyone that does not fit into this category as ones whom have some form of illness or defect, and are thus put
on drugs which further destroy the body and mind.
I think i've missed one, but cant think of it right this second :S
