These day parents seem to be passing their children off to someone else to be raised! It's so sad to see so many children who are missing out, due to their parents selfishness! The entitlement attitude that is becoming the way of the world, will soon take us out at the knees if something isn't done!

Let's Get REAL!

Ok Ladies I am going to get serious for a few minutes!!!
This may hurt some feelings but I feel it needs to be said!!!


When you were a child, where was your mother??
My mother was a stay @ home mother for 20 years,
and when her youngest child graduated high school, only then did she go back to work!!
My mother was FAR from perfect BUT...... She was ALWAYS a Mother, First and fore most!!
No matter what, my mother was there, even when I didn't think I liked her that much,lol.
My father was in the Military, he worked from 8-4 and some times was away for extended periods of time!! My mother was left with the 3 of us, as well as babysitting,
no less that 4 other children on a daily basis!!!

My Mother ALWAYS had time to make our business HER business!!
We were a very traditional house hold, there was no other excuse not to go to school,
unless you were deathly ill. We were at the table every night,
to eat dinner with the whole family, we all had chores!!
Our parents were strict, but for some strange reason, they were the coolest parents in the neighborhood! They knew every body by name and they were always interested in what the kids were doing!!

When my Dad wasn't away on the Ship, he was building small skateboarding parks for our friends, rebuilding community centers in our neighborhood, or just hangin out on the grass!!

He was even in charge of dishing out and enforcing the community services, some of my friends ended up having to do!! But EVERYBODY loved my parents!! They didn't take any crap, and wouldn't think twice about disciplining somebody else's kids right along side me, if we were caught doing some thing wrong,lol!!

I truly believe that woman need to WAKE the HELL up and realize that, once you have children, you are a Mother first and fore most!! No matter what!!
The reason why kids these days are so disrespectful and ignorant to the world around them, is because they are growing up in daycare, their parents pick them up, feed them and put them to bed, or they are coming home to empty houses at the end of their school day!!!

If there's nobody there to listen to their daily events @ school, where do you think they are going to turn??? That's right, the computer!! Chat rooms, facebook, predators and major weirdos, who are always there to listen!!!

Parents complain about the amount of time children spend on electronics these days,
but they seem to forget one thing..........
Parents are the ones who are buying these things for their kids,
spending thousands of dollars every year on them, just so they don't have to spend time talking and interacting with their children!!!

Isn't that why you became a parent in the first place???
If you do not place a computer in your child's room, you can 100% monitor the amount of time they spend online, as well as what they are doing and who they are interacting with!!!

Too many parents these days, are expecting other people to raise their children,
but expect to take the credit for it!!! It disgusts me how many women out there are more concerned with their own social lives, closets, and the corporate ladders they are climbing, then they are to be home with their children!! Supervising their actions,
and poking their noses where they don't belong!!

THAT IS A PARENTS JOB, NOT TO MENTION, THEIR RIGHT!!! PERIOD!!
There was a time, when I was 16 that I couldn't talk on the phone, unless I was sitting in the same room as one of my parents!!
Oh ya, you bet your ass it sucked but, they always knew what I was doing, and where I was going!!

Why?? SO I WAS SAFE!!
If I wasn't home on time, they knew who to call, if I didn't come home they knew there was something wrong and went looking.
There was not one minute in my life that I didn't know that both of my parents loved me!!!
They didn't always get along, but no matter what, they were ALWAYS Parents first & Parents TOGETHER!! A united front to the bitter end!!! When it came to punishments,there were no rash decisions, they always discussed it together in another room and then came together to dish it out!!!

Parents, seem to forget that
THEY ARE THE BOSS, THEY MAKE THE DECISIONS, WHAT THEY SAY GOES!!!
That is our RIGHT as Parents, don't EVER forget that!!
Put your foot down more when they are young and cute, it will be much easier to to do when they are big and ugly!! lol

It's time Mother's focus more on the lives of their children, and the members of society they will become!!
What kind of people do you want your children to become?? If you want them to be selfish, then all you have to do is...
Just keep being selfish and the rest will just fall into place!!!

I am a stay at home mother. I would not have it any other way. I love being a huge part of my son's life.

My mother was a stay at home mom too. Now a days too many people put the importance on having more things and so they work more rather than putting their kids as the thing of most importance.

Okay Half Pint Honey, Your mother was a stay home mum and what are you a 40+ old male chauvinist???
Well I was a stay home mum for the first 19 months of my childs life and learnt that the cheating father wasn't providing anything for the child, no clothes or food and hammered his life out when he asked for food. I quit being a stay home mum and became a corporate mum and provided for my child and kicked my husband out although he is still married to me he is in a mental asylum with a mental disability.
With your kind of hatred Half Pint Honey, do us all a favour will you?? Stay single and back off from the human race as we have a reason why we women work and provide for our offspring and I am one of it and so were my mother and grandmother and great grandmother we ALL turned out okay.
We are independent women not wives needing a tail to walk around and bonk and if the men are not suited or worthy enough we are proud to stand up and take responsibility rather than being a doormat house prostitute and an unpaid maid.

I am now a single mum who provides for my child got a problem with that, tough luck, you are no one to tell me its not accepted as I told my in-laws and brother in-laws off and did what I had to do for my childs welfare.

So long Half Pint Honey, you stay with your beliefs that working mums are no good and I as a working mum will say that my child respects me better as I have more to give than just wipe tears and fix bruises and cook and be a sex slave to a cheating man.

I was a single Mom, for the first 6 years of my son's life. I did not have some cheating man to stress me out!!

At no point did I say "women should NEVER work". I believe you may have missed the point of what I was saying!! I know that people need to work to survive and provide for their families!!
After working in early childhood education for over 12 years. I have seen many women who are more concerned about their jobs than their children, and after a few years, it shows in the children!!
Everybody has situations in life, that's life! But teaching our children how to be productive members of society, Is a parents job, not the babysitter, or the child themselves!!

I agree. If social life can be brought down to realistic levels, not only children will receive attention they deserve from their parents, but other vices that directly or indirectly come out from such neglect will also come down. I have always been an advocate of not more than four outings for parents in a month.

Thought provoking and needed reminders of what makes a family.

Mothers play the most important part and are the role models for their children though fathers do too but cannot replicate mother's role.

I find some mothers fail in their roles and feel sad for their children. In the initial years children should be the priority of parents especially the mothers. They cannot outsource child upbringing to others unless there are compelling reasons for doing so - siva
