WHO WILL HELP THE CHILDREN?
We have lost our way. In an era of “It’s all about me”, we have forgotten about leaving a legacy for our children. Where else can you find a five year old boy with bad credit because he has several utility bills in his name, and his mother thinks she’s outsmarting everyone because she keeps moving without having to pay any bills? Where can you find a female that was doing very well in school, but put on Ritalin because her mother found out she could get an ADD check each month? What about the father who flashes big money in the club every week, only to have the neighbors feed his starving kids? (14 million kids are starving in the USA). Don’t forget the people that make so much money and are so busy, they NEVER have any time to spend with their kids. I can almost promise that those children would much rather have an hour or two of time instead of a new luxury car every year. They would be ecstatic if their parent made one school event, one football game, one volleyball game, or one soccer game.
Ladies, why teach your girls all about “sugar daddies”, instead of letting her hit the books and get a scholarship to college? I promise you she’s smart enough. Sit down with her and let her show you how smart she truly is. How many “uncles” can she have in a life time? Fellas, how many “aunties” houses can you take your son to, and remind him not to tell mom when you both get home? You are teaching him how to treat women. He will tell sooner or later. How many girls and boys will continue to be molested by family members and have it all swept under the rug like it never happened?
What happened to teaching your children right from wrong? What happened to expecting them to excel in school?
We have failed our children miserably. We are so caught up in our own agendas, and they are slowly falling away, wandering through life aimlessly. We must get back to the basics, and make sure our kids get the education they will so desperately need in the future.
This was not written to criticize or demean. It is meant to be a wake- up call. I realize that change will not happen overnight. But, we have to start somewhere.
Our society has become so caught up in the spotlight, that we are leaving our kids behind in the dark ~
