Call Parents Out When Their Kid Is Acting Stupid!

Call Parents Out When Their Kid Is Acting Stupid!

The apple does not fall far from the tree. Today we have a generation of children who are the most disrespectful, ungrateful, lazy and entitled group I have ever known of. They have no respect for adults or children, they bully, they refuse to do chores, they don’t know how to follow simple instructions and have zero boundaries. Kids today often are playing the ” thug” role, or at least trying and it is only getting worse. Schools are overwhelmed with behavioral problems and do very little to find the root issues to these terrible problems.
I have an idea! Actually, I have more than an idea, I have evidence that something is missing in the way schools discipline the troublemakers. I have personally been handed 80 expelled, busted and disgusted teens with felony violence charges, gang involvement, drugs, and a total absence of respect for anyone or anything.

I addresses each kid case by case, and did something unusual; I made the parents play a part in the solving of the problem. They felt a response cost when their child acted out. They had to leave their jobs and come right to the school for a meeting. I put some of the pressure on them. After many meetings and therapy sessions, the truth usually came out. It was the parents who were the culprits They modeled for the child one behavior after another that were simply imitated by the child. I have worked with many hundreds of families, and 80% of the time, we ended up doing a treatment plan for the parents, not just the children.

I m not saying that all kids are bad today.. What I am saying is that a large group of kids that are making very poor choices and many times it is the parental behavior that is influencing and molding who their kids will become. I think they should get parent training , and do their part as well. Be a parent! Do your job!

This 14 Second Video Changed My Life…

My son has been a bull rider since he was 10 years old, and is now only a year away form adulthood. He is stubborn, handsome, smart, and more determined to do what he wants than most and willing to do the work to get there.
Yesterday, we were at one of his bull riding events at a major venue. I did what I do when we go to rodeos. Got my camera ready to tape his ride so he can review them and see what he needs to work on, etc..
Yesterday I had a revelation about my youngest son. He is who he is. He knows the risks, and has carefully taken every precaution to protect himself from injury. Even having done these things, he like most riders, has been busted up many times form being bucked off of a huge mean bull.
I support him. I will always support him. I will not be a dream killer because of my selfish desires to have him protected from any dangers. He is ok with it, so I should be too, in this case. Yet as I was filming this short clip of his 6 second ride, my heart dropped to my feet as I watched this huge bull come within inches of stepping on my boy’s head.
Watch this very quick clip and see what you would feel if it was your child on there. Would you be able to support them, or would you just keep them in a bubble as long as you could to shield them from any harm as long as you could?
I am talking my flesh and blood here, so this is a personal post in that way. I want to know what other parents would feel like watching a child of theirs doing this week after week for years….Input welcome.

How far should we go to support our children’s dreams?

” You cannot pr…

” You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness” – Jonathan Safran Foer

Hunter S. Thompson once posed this question- ” So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed? ”

Readers, if you can connect these two quotes as they pertain to your own life, you may find that you are happier than you think. You may conversely find that you have some living to get on with. Powerful words these men spoke, if you can apply them in a practical way to your life. Be well.

California Bully ( 9 ) Gets Hit With Restraining Order After Incident At School-

California Bully ( 9 ) Gets Hit With Restraining Order After Incident At School-

So in California, one father is all jacked up about an incident that took place at the school where his 9 year old son attends. It appears another boy, also 9 and known as a bully came up and cracked the other boy in the jaw. the dad states that the school says they cannot doing anything ( memo to school admin-. Zero tolerance for battery is in place).

The father decided to go to court and get a restraining order against the child who attacked. The law says the kid must be served in 5 days, but nobody at the school can or will release his name and address. Now the dad is up in arms and frustrated. I would be too.

If this is not the boy’s first offense, and if it were me as the administrator, I would suspend him, and order him and his parents to a 2 day anger management workshop to attend as a family. After all, in my experience, kids learn this behavior from someone, so it couldn’t hurt the parents to attend a workshop for their own accountability as well as the boys’. Feedback? What would you do if it was your boy, as the bully or the victim? These are problems schools face everyday and do not know what to do. Give your input!

The Road to ” Forward” Was Never Paved- Our Gullable Amercians.

The Road to

In honor of the first lady’s recent public rap effort supporting eating more vegetables, and the President himself being tight with rapper Jay-Z, I felt inspired to freestyle some and drop my own set , which I have affectionately called;
Ode to the Old
A long long time ago, a man in the White house meant a man who could run the show.
While then the man kept our enemies in their land, we today help them attack, even give them a hand.
The rules we have are now all “bad” and our rights are rewritten, scratched on a pad.

The guns I don’t mind, being taken away. But it should not be us who loses them I say!
Give billions to killers, to arm them for battle, but strip us of ours as you take the saddle. I hear rapping from the White House and dancing as well, while we all walk the road to hell.

Rapping on carrots in front of some kids, surely wont bring us any hope for this path, this path you have chosen brings us a horrible wrath. Rewriting the laws to fit your agenda, has only been serving an ego not the masses. Arming and hiring our terrorist enemies cannot be mistaken, this is a damn war you are making. You tell Russia they are a ” regional ” power, as Putin steps on you like a crumbled up flower. He dismissed you as an “idiot”, and you obliged as you do, by proving his vile words totally true.

Why would you take the greatest country around, and pound it again and again in the ground? The answer to that lies only within, but your cards are now showing, and the jury is in.
You are no more than an enemy to our people, and cannot even enter a church with a steeple. Mosques and brotherhood breakfasts you are quick to attend, but not a union meeting when jobs need a mend.

You may have fooled some, for all of the time and all for some of the time, but none that saw you coming had a doubt in our heads, that you would like to dismantle this place -render it dead. Its a shame the platform you ran to get here, leaving those you used living in fear. You will play golf, and dine with the enemy while we stand back and wonder why you are free.

Executive orders are used as a reason to help the your agenda, but just for a season. Vacations will keep rolling, for you and your crew, and I hear you even got the daughters working for you. We cant find those jobs, the healthcare, the hope, that you promised so boldly. You lied on that too, but who can be shocked? You rarely come through but watch painlesly as our world is rocked. Shame on you for being who you are, a man of power, yet off by so far. Forgiveness is there for those whose who will change, but the lure of the world has left you the same.

It is one thing to make a mistake or two, we all are human and occasionally do. But what you are doing is terribly vile, and the lies coming out of your mouth are now expected of you. Blaming Fox News or a certain political group, might fly if you had any trust with the people, but 38% approval tells that your stories are feeble. The few that remain faithful to the agenda you make, I feel bad for -they were unable to see a fake.

The good news for us, is we are Americans you see, and that flag was paid for with a price very dear. The constitution as well is not your note pad. People fought for those rights and they wont be made void, no matter what you may change . Divide and conquer is an old way of taking down, even a solid country with thinkers around. The problem you have and will one day see clear, is that not one of our soldiers will live in your fear.

You keep the billions you take to vacation, while people today are fighting relocation. You keep the distractions coming with useless campaigns and pointless agendas. We all no where deception will lead, and you are just steps from reaping that seed. So keep your hand down, don’t salute your marines. Refuse to say God and don’t say the pledge. Dishonor our veterans and lie to the people, use up the remaining few sheeple. Soon you will find yourself alone, and with no power at all. You cannot avoid that, even though you may stall.

Eat, drink and be Merry, while the people of our country still struggle, but know that the life of a liar is no badge of honor. Better you stayed in your land and not lead a country, that wont bow to your hand and will never look back. The freedoms we have were hard earned before, and if need be again they will be earned once more.

Soon its time to move on Mr. President. You may even try this again some where else some other time, but be sure you learned one thing through this charade, it wont fly here now, and it will not fly then.

As the first lady recently rapped on national television, ” Holla Now”

Equality-An Unrealistic Dream? What’s The Point Anyway?

Equality-An Unrealistic Dream? What's The Point Anyway?

First off, I must note that I did not come up with this idea for a post. Some woman put me up to this, and you know how that can be. A set up probably, but I took the bait and here I am writing about equality. What is equality anyhow? Is it when all people of all sex, race, size, intelligence, age, wealth, looks, shoe size, marital status, corporate status and things like those receive “equal” treatment in this world? Is it the idea that all people get treated equally and fairly with their rights protected in the exact same way that any given person’s are?

My former boss was not fair to me. In his case I think he was a “flamer” though, so he just didn’t like me I guess because I was straight. Plus he was from New York, and you know how obnoxious they can be, just saying “good morning” to someone. It really was not an equality based business anyhow so I should not count that experience. Lets stick with a simple subject like marriage. I am so tired of hearing how women should not stay home with the children, and hearing about women’s rights and women’s ability to perform the same duties as a man.

A man is the stronger partner then the women, we all know that. We like to pretend that everyone is at an equal level, but the truth is, how many high school fights do you remember between a girl and a boy? It would not be fair would it? Every once in awhile I have seen a couple of kids of opposite sex get physical in a fight, but usually they were black.

Equality is a myth. People are designed to play certain roles in society, or have just taken on the roles that we all know of today. I don’t think the people want equality, I think they want personal exceptions in certain situations and use the word equality to justify and acquire the exception that they want.
Should a person born in one country be able to lead another country? How about support the enemies of the country they lead? Is that equality? No, but we support it every day.
When my kid is in line at school to try out for the basketball team, and another kid is a foot taller also trying out, should the taller player get picked? Why?

How come I cannot drive through Cabrini Green Projects in Chicago without risking being shot? Is that equality?
When I want to go say “Hey” to Michael Jordan over at the basketball game, while he is in the stands, how come I get turned away by some paid bodyguard? That’s not fair!

I have had 13 hip surgeries due to a botched surgery. Lost the house, the cars and all, couldn’t work for years, but when I wanted to tap disability until I could work, no go- they said I was too young to be injured! Equality.
Whether you are pro-life or pro-slice, the fact is we murder millions of babies that are simply unborn, every year. We call them ” fetuses” to justify our exception. Certainly cannot call that equality though.

I could go on for ever about equality, but with this audience, it would probably be a waste of time, and I will probably waste my time writing. I heard not all bloggers are too sharp. As a matter of fact you may not even understand my point here, unless you have at least a four-year degree, like I do….
People are in love with pity parties. People enjoy being victims, or they have nothing to whine about. Give people equality and you will have a certain group complaining about how unfair it is. You cannot win, so you play the game.
The truth is today’s social institutions have no sense of equality other than the mandatory posters on their walls. Think of it this way, if I raise my child without proper nutrition, in poor school zones, and without proper discipline, and he applies for a job as a fire fighter, does he or she have a fair chance at getting the job? Well, if the competition is exactly the same as far as physical shape goes, it should be fair, right? No way. Physical condition is just one part of the job. What if following instructions is mandatory? The other competitors may have had the benefit of much better schooling, and polishing, simply due to their economic status growing up. Equality in this scenario? Not really, but who is to blame?

As Milton Friedman says, Freedom before any attempt at equality. We all want freedom, but I am not sure equality is even realistic. As a side note, you should have been offended at something written in this post. If you were not, equality is not even deserving of a place in our dictionary.

Racism- It Comes In Every Color- Warning- Truth Ahead!

Racism- It Comes In Every Color- Warning- Truth Ahead!

Colored folks. That’s what my grandma used to call black people. She didn’t mean anything negative by it, as a matter of fact she had close friends who were “colored”. I was thinking about the racism that did exist back in the day, the slavery, the separate water fountains, and all. That was racism. It was made clear that negroes were not as worthy to eat or drink in the same place as white folks, or ” crackers ” as we are sometimes called now. I read about some of the terrible things that occurred and shutter to think that they happened to anyone. It was unfair and wrong.
Fast forward to today, I am just as shocked to see the same thing happening but in reverse. Is there a payback movement going on? Do I have to pay for what NONE of my ancestors did? As far back as I can trace, nobody in my family was a slave owner, and some say only 10% of white men did. The rich ones. So why do I have to walk on eggshells around anybody who does not happen to be white? I don’t and I wont. I don’t owe a damn thing to anyone just because I was born a certain color. I act white, talk white, and am proud to be white. I hope black people feel the same about their race. So what is all this hatred for white folks going around, as if this generation caused the problems that existed in the past? Its ridiculous.

If nobody is offended yet, keep reading. I am just getting started. This is my blog and I have a right to say what is on my mind. It relates to kids as well, so all the more I will preach on. I have a very close black friend who is like a mentor to me. She has lived through hard times and shares the stories, yet does not have an angry bone towards me because she senses the respect I have for her, no matter what color she is. She calls me a cracker when we are playing around, and I ask her if I can call her black, or if she changed it back to ” African American” this week. Its all in good fun, no tension. We both agree that it is getting out of control. During the elections for President, we talked Obama. She asked my opinion, and I told her I thought he was a well polished, well spoken, pathological liar who was using the black population to further his agenda, but had no intentions of helping anyone but himself. She told me she tended to agree, but would vote for him just to get a black man in office. We agreed to disagree on that and moved on to a different topic. Had I had the same talk with another person, they may have become offended because I gave my honest opinion. That’s wrong. We live in a place where FREE SPEECH is allowed, and we should be tolerant of everyone’s feelings.

Before I go further, I want to remind those you who don’t know, that during my 24 years as a social worker, and foster parent, I took in about 15 black teens, and about 15 white teens, and a few Hispanics to live with me. I care about everyone, no matter the color. I have spent more time working with minority families, in their homes late at night then I have with whites. We have talked about the fact that the jails are filled with 80% blacks, and whether it is because our system is racist, or because blacks commit more crimes. We talk about real issues, and try to solve real problems.

Most of my black friends are people I can trust, people who still call their close black friends the ” N” word when joking, but I would never want to say that word or think of doing it. You know why? Because I have lived long enough to see that bad hearts come in every color. I know many white people who are called ” rednecks” and they are proud of it, I also know of people that are white, who have bad hearts, and they call black people niggers. I call them trailer trash. Am I wrong?

As a non-racist person, I refuse to do a few things.

1- I refuse to bear the guilt of something that white people did before I was born. I wont.
2- I refuse to discriminate against any color person, when choosing my friends.
3- I wont tolerate racism when it is in my presence. I will point out that someone has a bad heart, but wont call racial names.
4- I will not stop going to my favorite places to eat or hang just because people there are mostly black. It feeds into the whole division thing.
5- I will ALWAYS judge motives, not skin color.

So the point of this post is to remind people that racism can go either way, and at this point in time, I am feeling a shift in culture as if I am labeled bad because I am white, in some circles. It happens to whites too. The other day, I waited in line at an office to get a form turned in to help me with some grants I was applying for. I was the only white person, and about 8 black ladies were in front of me. They all got their forms approved within a minute of approaching the black lady at the window. When I got there, I was told they were not ” accepting ” any more applications! That is racism. I told my friend about it (the black mentor) and she told me to stay right there. She drove up there and reamed the lady a new one, and got my application approved. That is a friend. But why should she have to do that? In 2014?

I guess the same reason she calls me when she needs a similar favor. Its good to have friends like that, but too bad we have to do stuff like that for each other. We had a conversation about the media and celebrities and the way rappers and singers are portraying race today. Some is neutral, and some is flat out hatred. It is a shame we have to consider what color we are before going into certain neighborhoods or places of business. I would rather die standing my ground than be scared to be attacked because of my skin color. I am not intimidated by anyone, and will not allow anyone of any color to make me feel ” less than” for any reason. Whether black or white, African American or Cracker, I wont play the race game. People need to teach their children about these things, and stop this terrible cycle. Instead, the kids I work with are many times racist by age 6 or 7. Sad, very sad.
Last time I spoke to my mentor friend, she greeted me with a playful “cracker” joke, and I responded with a playful, ” I don’t understand ” You People” …..and we talked as usual. It took years to build that, and I don’t recommend greeting strangers with that, but for us, its a way to vent and mock the way things are, not to judge. Make sense? I have a feeling another post like this is on the way in the near future. Let me hear what your thoughts are people?

Are You Double Minded? Fail Much?

Are You Double Minded? Fail Much?

I was watching one of the few television shows that I like, and there was a very interesting story line. The show has excellent actors and usually keeps me guessing. Not to promote, so I will just mention that the initials are CM and it rhymes with “minimal finds”…haha
The story line was about a man who had taken on so many identities in his life that he ended up disconnecting mentally and snapping trying to keep them all straight. I felt a kindred spirit and was prompted to think of my own life, and how being double minded has ever affected me. I am pretty sure that anyone who has read my about page knows I don’t hold back about my personal struggles, and that I say what is on my mind. Not to offend anyone, that is just how I am wired. Sometimes it works for me, and sometimes against me. It is what it is.

However I often think of a scripture verse form the book of James, that reminds us that a double minded man (person) is unstable in ALL of their ways. Not a few ways, not occasionally, but unstable in ALL our ways. That is a little scary to process, as I think anyone can spot some double mindedness in ourselves. At least I can.
We all have to have a base, a foundation, an anchor to hold on to lest we burst free into an uncontrollable realm of endless choices. Everyone needs to have a home base. My home base happens to be scripture. That is how I measure myself against what is good, what is right and wrong. Am I saying I always make the right choices? No, no way. I am like a boat that is anchored to the dock, but has a long rope attached, and sometimes find myself adrift in the hard and cold waves, wishing I had stayed at the dock. That is a painful way to live and it always makes things harder than they need to be. Yet I daily find myself having to re-direct my thoughts or actions, to try to stay at the dock.

Things just don’t work when they are done the wrong way, with wrong intentions, or with impure motives. I know because I have experienced the failure of living that way. We can have everything on the surface that makes people ” think” that we have it all together; nice cars, homes, families and all- but what lies deep within is what really matters. Whether you are a CEO reading this, or a blogger like me, a salesman or whatever- makes no difference. We are all vulnerable to crumbling as a result of double mindedness.
I happened to flip on another program after CM, and it had a similar but different storyline. This show is mega popular, and attempts to make inappropriate lifestyles ” fit” to the everyday viewer. It is the first major show to lay out a twisted rendition of how “normal” families should be. However, the problem is that it is still wrong. My wrong bell still went off, even though it was on television and people watch it. Making something popular has nothing to do with whether it is right or wrong. No connection at all, yet I see the world trying to make things appear right, when we all know the truth.

Adopting the world’s mindset is dangerous, and most of the people who do it simply do not have a dock to go back to, so they drift like waves in the sea, bumping, bruising, and wondering why life is so confusing. It really is not confusing. it is our rebellion to do the right things that cause confusion, heartache and pain.

I have worked with literally thousands of people as a social worker and troubleshooter over the years, and I found that we all have some things in common as humans.

1- We often take the hard road, only to fail and then question why we failed, or even blame God or our spouses or someone else.

2- We are very much allured by the popularity of things in this world. Often, many of us are like sheep that follow the next sheep wherever it goes, and when the cliff is right there one sheep follows the other right off.

3- We don’t realize we are swimming upstream in this world when we choose to do what is right, and not to do what is wrong. If you have ever paddled a canoe upstream, you are well aware that you may not stop paddling without an immediate shove downstream by the current. Every day, we have to decide what we will dwell on, what we will allow, what we will do and actually follow through with it. We may get this boat back to the dock yet!

So if you are experiencing trouble in your mind, and confusion then you might be double minded in a certain area of your life. Identify it, address it, and keep paddling. Most of all, make sure you have a home base! Without structure, we all will fail. People often say to that they have children that need structure because they have a tendency to act out. I then ask them if they have structure in THEIR life!
If you are an adult, and you still doubt that you need boundaries to be successful, to survive, then consider the following scenario as if it were real;

All stop lights and speed limits are no more!

Do you know how scared we would all be to go anywhere? People going in every direction, flying through traffic with no idea where they are headed, and just one big deadly bumper car game. We would not make it. We need the structure. The same holds true in our daily lives.

I once heard a story of a man who wanted to purchase a high rise condominium somewhere so high up that the cars looked like ants in the parking lot. He was escorted to the newly finished building by the developer, and they rode the elevator to the top floor. As he walked in to the condo he was amazed, impressed and could not believe the awesome décor and beauty. A few minutes late the developer opened the patio door, hoping to seal the deal with a super high breath-taking view of the ocean. The man walked out on to the porch and after about one step on the deck, he ran backwards into the condo! The developer asked him what was wrong. The man responded ” Where is the little fence around that deck? The developer smiled and said ” Oh, we just have not put that in yet, but we will next week”. The man was horrified and left the property as he was so scared of what he saw. What did he see? He saw a place with no limits, no boundaries, and it scared him to death. The truth is, the little decorative fence they use on most patios are cosmetic, and would not stop someone from falling over. They look nice and they give us an idea of where to stop while we are in that place.

We all need little boundaries in each areas of our lives. Reminders of where right and wrong, good and bad are. We all have a boat, and we all need to keep paddling back to the dock, so we can live with some peace and hope. It sure beats being busted and disgusted all the time.

That’s what I hear anyways! 🙂

Girls With Mental Illness More Likely To Become Pregnant-

Girls With Mental Illness More Likely To Become Pregnant-

I don’t think this is breaking news, but I do not see it addressed too often.. Girls who suffer from real mental health issues are getting pregnant at higher rates then those who do not. I see this as a supervision issue, at least in the teenage years, and an educational issue as well. I think many young girls are taken advantage of by males who see them as a weak link. Feedback welcome!

How To Change Your Life…For Good!

How To Change Your Life...For Good!

When is enough really enough? I get home and the first thing I do is flip the light on, then I kick my shoes off by the door, I fix a large diet soda with ice, and hit the power button on the laptop to see what is new.
This is my routine when I get home from a day out. I am tired of routine, mundane living, so I mixed it up last week and kept my shoes on until after I had my drink, and left the light off. Sadly I did not feel the winds of change bursting through my veins, just left in the dark for the whole 5 minutes of the experience.
Small thinking equals small results. So I decided to make some even bigger changes and risk everything, change my thinking, change the way I see things, the way I view my family, my country, and other things that have an impact on my daily decisions. The thing is, change is a bit of work! As it turns out, it actually requires discipline and a reset of our brain every now and again.
People have written books on how to make changes in life, how to adjust to changes, how to adjust to the adjustments, and so on. Nothing wrong with that, but here is a thought on change- Change is all about what you decide to think, and what you direct yourself to dwell on. It is simply difficult, and hardly easy, change that is.
Socrates made a statement (so I hear) that the key to change is to focus on building the new , not fighting the old. I think there is much truth in this and we all can learn something about looking back at what went wrong so much. We focus on what did not happen instead of what can be, what should have been different instead of what we can make different. Its a problem with all of us, the pity party about the past and the lack of vision for the future. The changes we need to make do not require extensive study and books, they require discipline and resolve. We decide to view what may come about instead of what was once a maybe and we move forward. Sometimes we get so stuck in the past, looking back that we trip on our journey forward. Whatever you need change in, why not today, why not now? Waiting for a sign? Here is your sign- Just do it!

Justification For Mandatory Parenting Classes. Man Bites His Baby’s Nose Off.

Justification For Mandatory Parenting Classes. Man Bites His Babies Nose Off.

Just when I had think I had seen almost everything, this story appears. A man was upset that his 1 month old son would not stop crying, so he did what any parent would do..HE BIT 1/3 OF THE BABY’S NOSE OFF!

If anyone questions the need for parenting classes for new parents, this should turn things around quickly, I hope.

Babies are an absolute life changer for any parent, no question. It gets frustrating when you do not know what they need or want. However, pulling a Mike Tyson on my children was never an option. I have never walked away from an anxiety ridden moment when my children were young and thought to myself, ” I should just go back and rip half his nose off”. So how should young mothers and fathers get the training they need to handle hard times with babies? Between SBS ( Shaken Baby Syndrome ) and all of the severe physical abuse that goes on in this world against babies, how and when do we step in and say enough is enough?

.Giver and Takers- Who Do They Say You Are?

.Giver and Takers- Who Do They Say You Are?

Disregard the non-existent post that I just deleted, shortly after I THREW my truck keys in the Dumpster while taking the trash out this morning. There now that it is off my chest I will carry on with a real , and saved post that will actually be discernable to a certain degree anyhow.

We are back, live and that’s what counts! Have a very good topic and hoping for some feedback on this subject, as we are ALL impacted by this in one way or another..

You!- Yes You- Giver?- Taker?

I will tell you now which one you are and maybe even why. Hate the game not the player, no hater mail but this is a little something people often turn quickly from and close up those ears for. LISTEN! TIME TO TIGHTEN UP!

There in 2 types of people in my world, and in this post specifically only 2. Givers, those who were taught at a young age to serve even when in leadership roles, by example;

And those Takers- those who were spoiled, handed everything, were not taught a young age to do anything but ask for more, and still be whining in the end.

This is a simple blog, I am a fairly cerebrally challenged, but yet simple in a good way, kind of person. So I keep it simple .

You may be a giver, if you NEVER get enough of ANYTHING. The want is always for more of this and more of that, although when you get it, you still cry like a 2 year old at naptime.
{ Oh, that reminds me, you takers were mostly left undisciplined and should have had a few good whacks with a parental hand on the bottom but likely were coddled instead and given your every desire, which in turn, made huge problems for you when you got to be an adult, because the REST of the world is not here to serve and pamper you.} ( new record for run on sentences right there)

It might take a few years and some licked wounds to get on your feet, thanks to the NON- parenting you mom and dad chose to do.
Yes , I think spanking is the answer for cranky and stubborn 2 year olds when they are disobedient and cannot communicate effectively with you any other way. No I am not for child abuse or ” hitting ” children. Spanking once in a awhile is a whole different arena.
Moving right along, you Takers, you may be a Taker if you find yourself sucking the life out of whomever you are constantly taking from? Not taking subtle hints?

Time for grown up school. You cannot play that way in the real world. Parents teach your kids to work, and be disciplined, respectful, teach them how to learn contentment in any situation, and that it will never come in the form of material goods or money, or what kind of car you drive or whatever. People have lost their ability to be content in ANY situation, and are now just plain ” freaking out ” when the fit hits the shan- if you are pickin up what I am putting down..

Notice we have committed most of the used space to Takers. This is because think they are the only ones living and in need of anything. Therefore we have to use more space to describe you. Although it has crossed my mind that if one is a remorseful, willing to change Taker, understanding the root cause and all- then welcome to the reality show we call LIFE.
Now I am too worn out and worked up for the givers section, but you don’t need me to tell you anyhow. I am ending this post as it has been inconsistent enough for me to blog now, and move on. Scattered is my brain today. Feedback on givers and takers please!

I Have Been Busy Doing Nothing All Day!

I Have Been Busy Doing Nothing All Day!

This is not a real post I guess. Its a guilt post, like guilt flowers when a man has done something wrong… I am tired, and over loaded, busy all day and I still manage to crawl to my couch and slide the laptop over to me while everyone settles down. I just cannot stop for even a day. I wonder if there are classes or a group to help with this blogging problem I have. I do not know the whole audience but I know some of you and would like to know many.

Shout out to my brother Shaun in Scotland! Prayingforoneday and you have inspired me along with the others. I will hit you up soon to chat! You people wherever you may be, mean very much to me, and to the cause of this blog. I often wonder if I might be passing someone on the street, or at the airport who has seen this blog. I wonder if maybe I almost bumped into one of you at a restaurant but never knew it! Maybe I have seen one of the bloggers I follow, or just been very close and never knew it…
Anyhow, coming strong tomorrow and to all a good night. If anyone can guess what the title of this post has to do with the photo, please do post. They are directly related.
Best,
