I know you'll never read this. I wish I could say these things to you instead of about you. However, over the last year that we've been sharing a
wall, we've become friends. I like you guys. I enjoy our BBQ's, fishing together, playing with your kids.
But there are some things I really need to get off my chest.
You guys are terrible parents. There I said it. Even though I have no children of my own yet, I know bad parenting when I see it.
You tattooed your 3 year old sons face last week. 3 dots under his eye. When I saw this I was horrified. When I asked you why, you replied,"Cuz it's
gangsta!" You're right, it is gangsta. It's a gang tattoo. He's 3. What are his teachers going to think about that? What will a doctor say,
assuming you ever take your kids to see a doctor? Yeah I know it's Hawaii and you guys are part native. Tattoos are part of your culture. I get it.
Hell I'm covered in tattoos from head to toe. But not even I would tattoo a 3 year old. Not to mention your apartment is not the most sanitary place,
and you have no business tattooing anyone in there with kids around. Do you know the first thing about infectious diseases?
You watch loud, violent movies all day and all night on your giant flat screen TV, which is mounted on the other side of my paper thin kitchen
wall. Then when your kids don't want to go to sleep, you scream at them to "shut up, lay down, and go to sleep". Every single night. I wonder why
they have so much trouble sleeping at night. How about I force you into a corner on the floor, and scream in your face till you go to sleep?
You smack your son way too much. I've seen the bruises on his back and legs. For god's sake, I can hear you hitting him through the wall. And you
wonder why he cries all the time, and why he keeps running over to my place. He's trying to get away from you.
Your 3 year old drinks more soda in a week than I drink in a year. Enough said on that.
Whenever your 1 year old is awake, she is screaming and crying. I don't mean crying as most babies do. She is in pain. The sounds that come out of
her are not just cries for attention or a new diaper. Something is wrong with her. I swear it sounds like you guys are pulling her arms out of the
sockets. I've never seen a baby so upset, so consistently, for so long. You refuse to breast feed because you think it's gross. So instead you give
her "formula" (an appropriate name for this concoction) with a list of ingredients that reads like my chemistry homework. I am fairly certain that
she A) is having really bad stomach problems from that swill you make her drink and or B) she is deaf from an ear infection which never received
proper medical care.
As I'm typing this I can hear you yelling at the 3 year old. "Shut the hell up and get the hell away from me!"
I hate to say it, but these kids don't stand a chance at life thanks to you guys.
If I must say something positive, thank you for showing me how NOT to be a parent.
