Children these days are troubled miscreants... through no fault of their own! Their parents just don't know how to properly raise a child.
Here's what I believe. The world today teaches kids that it is okay to sin. The first thing we do is teach that addiction is a good thing. I have heard marijuana called a gateway drug, but there's one that comes before that, and we introduce it to our own children... Caffeine. You probably think I am crazy, but caffeine is a drug. Itseasily addictive, and we give our children soda and coffee from a very young age. And if we don't, we drink it ourselves which tells children "This is okay to drink when I am bigger." So they start drinking it later because"Mommy and Daddy drink it." Then, we are shocked when our children turn to methamphetamines.
Secondly we promote sexual promiscuity. We get pregnant out of wedlock and wind up with deadbeat baby daddies. Our children grow up thinking this is normal, so the cycle repeats.
We teach stealing is right. How many times have you used a wireless internet connection without your neighbors knowledge? Or used one at a restaurant without even buying a drink? Walked out of the store with something you forgot to pay for in your cart? That is stealing.
It is our fault when our kids turn out bad. So think before you act. Your children are watching you.
