I am just thinking out loud here, but ever since the laws have changed toward parenting I have noticed a very large increase in not only laziness, but
criminal activity amongst our nation's youth!
Think about (if you are at least 30 years old) back in the day, if you were bad in school.....Guess what?? You got a beating from a wooden paddle at
school! Not to mention the beating from dad when you get home for him having to take the call about you while at work!
So you would get the epic butt beating (with the wooden paddle with holes in it) from the school principal, then again at home...
Now a days, you can't even smack a kid without going to prison!
Lack of discipline in my eyes is one of the main reasons for the youth to act like an idiot that can't get in trouble for anything they do!
If you are raised as no matter what you do or how bad it is, the worst you get is yelled at......What kind of upbringing is this?? You are aware 100%
that no matter how bad the situation, or how bad you are, you will get nothing worse than someone telling you not to do it anymore!
Now I am no advocator of beating the crap out of a child, just a smack on the butt to embarass the child (not in public, and not in front of others)
so your child knows that this kind of behavior is not tolerated and will not be tolerated no matter what that young immature mind believes!
The change in the youth has completely shifted, from playing outside and any kind of physical activities to playing on their new tablet, cell phone,
laptop, video game system, etc!
I know technology is great, and this is how we advance as intelligent species, but why does this mean that kids no longer have fun doing things
outside or with people?
So if you actually raise your child better than you were, why wouldn't you do all the things your father did with you and more??
Take your child outside to go hunting, this isn't so the child learns how to kill.....This teaches a child how to be responsible with a gun......Teach
him/her of the dangers and show how powerful guns actually can be!
Raise a child to respect people.....This is where parents really lack! Children should always show respect for others.....Yes sir, thank you, simple
things that go a long way! If you raise a child to show nobody any type of respect, then what do you think will happen in school or even further down
If you don't want society to raise your kid (which you shouldn't) then you need to parent up and raise your child appropriately!
Sorry about my rant, but I feel this is one of the major factors with the youth we are having......People killing kids?? How can someone raised with
morals and ethics even think about doing something this barbaric? They wouldn't is the answer!
Please open up any discussions about what you believe is the reason. I think parenting is the only CHANGE we need to be more successful in stopping
these kinds of actions from happening! Banning guns is not going to change a thing, criminals will find a gun......There is a law against killing
people, yet criminals still do it....!
