THIS is what you get from this generation that we've raised.
I'd seriously like to see how a good parent these days is able to handle such an outrage.

I know how the previous generation would have handled it! Damned government interference.

Since LBJ's administration, the US government , in it's so-called "war on poverty", has systematically destroyed many core values of the American family. How? Over the years, our government has made it increasingly comfortable to exist without ever having to lift a finger doing anything resembling "work". Over the past 50 years or so, America's children have watched increasingly higher percentages of their parents sit on their arses all their lives, waiting for that (ahem) "disability money" to hit their checking account. Kids within these types of distorted families ARE CONDITIONED not to appreciate much of anything, unless it's some type of NoBama liberal-socialist freebie.

If you are truly interested, I'd be happy to!:-)
I'm dead serious. In a way I feel sorry for many who limit themselves to the t.v. and newspaper news. They don't get HALF of what they should. Guess I'm a news junkie because I've found out things I wished I'd never known. Also my wife spent years being active in our children's schools.

But I digress. Allow me to start from the beginning--the public schools. I was in the public schools in Dayton in the 50s and believe me, public schools today are NOTHING like they were then, aside from new knowledge discovered. I have spoken at length on the boards on this. Here is the difference. When we were growing up in the 50s, if you did something at school that required punitive discipline, you were in trouble when you got home. Both my parents worked and they STILL took the time to teach me and my siblings right from wrong.
If one of my siblings had kicked poor old grandpa with arthritis in the shins, he or she would have gotten their butt beat and had to apologize. I'm not saying that was entirely the right route, but the fact is, we KNEW it was wrong to just physically abuse someone just because they didn't do what we wanted (or prohibited that which we wished). THAT was bad enough.
But to kick Grandpa, THAT was utterly despicable and disrespectful. It was NOT tolerated.

I'm ex military and my wife and I got lucky to be able to raise our children during their formative years out of country. We had two back ups. One, if your kids did something bad enough to require it, they got deported without you. Second, we did not have a stazi like system trying to make sure we didn't " abuse" our children.(as if we would) Came back to the states and first thing you know the school was interfering with our child raising trying to tell them that we are wrong and they are right; on several issues I'll not mention as an aside.

Fast forward till when the kids were in high school. In our church TWO good Christian sets of parents had lost one of the pair to arrest due to false accusations made by the schools.
One was in the case of a special needs kid who did her own headbanging, another was because of a joke the kid had made because she didn't want to clean her room. It's easy to just join the political bandwagon and just ASSUME the parents were wrong. But in both of these cases the parents AND the kids suffered at the hands of state interference. Oh, and if they totally disagree with you on what you did with YOUR kids, they'll send you to a MANDATORY state sponsored child raising class that you have to attend, whether you agree with their principles or not.

Fast forward AGAIN to today. I don't know about your child or grandchild's school but in some other places, you could get called out for abuse simply for raising your voice toward your children if they do something wrong. No joke. Heaven forbid they should do something worse that requires a spanking when they can't understand reason. Parents walk on pins and needles today.

Just recently I and my wife visited one of our children's place for the first time. We noticed that the little two year old boy didn't even BLINK when told by his mother not to do something. He just ignored her. And all she did was tried to remove him from what he was doing. Now he's into taking things that aren't his and hiding them for his benefit.

I wonder. How's school going to be for that child if that child cannot even follow the directions of his parents.

Oh, add today this little government organization called " child social services". Better watch your step or your kids will be taken from you. And don't think THEY will do any better.
