Complain but not do!

Why is it so many people complain about the laws and the they way things are done, but they will not do their own part in fixing them? I mean for instance: Parents want the kids to listen and follow the rules at school and the laws. Yet, they let their kids do what they want and ask the teachers to handle them and the cops to take care of them. I am referring to the many people that I see on T.V. that say, "I don't know why my son shot whom ever!" Or, "I don't know why my girls beat this other girl up!" But, yet these are the same parents that get mad when the law steps in or the school steps in to stop these kids. These are also the same parents that let their kids party or do what they want most of the time. I seen a boy today who was 13 yrs. old and he had more piercings then I have seen on most adults in my life. And, the mother was standing in line at the store saying, "Why don't you listen to me?" I wanted to tell her, "Well, it could be because you let him have or do whatever he wants!" I mean if my son came home with all those piercings I would have kicked his back side. And, he would get rid of everyone of them. This boy was rude to his mother and did not talk with nice language at all! Yet, she bought him all the clothes he wanted. I would have told him to take the clothes back because he did not earn them by talking to me right or treating me right. I think parents need to get responsible for their kids and stop passing the blame on everything else or everyone else. People take care of YOUR KIDS! What do you think? Do we pass the buck because it is easier then saying we don't know how or what to do or want to do it? Let me know what you think!!! **Peace and Love get's you through everything in Life**

AMEN!! I know someone right now who has been warned for years and years that his daughter was getting out of control...he did nothing. Now she's 14 and a spoiled little you know what, she's rude, disrespectful and ungrateful...and he doesn't know what to do. Had he started years ago, she might not be the way she is but he couldn't be bothered. Now he has to live with it. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Hi Carpathian, My feelings are that parents don't spend enough quality time with their children when they are younger. There are other problems of course like parents fighting in front of their children, gossiping about others and being rude to their children when they ask questions, even going so far as to lie to them. We have to give respect to get respect and that even applies to our children. The first six or so years are the most important in a persons life and although they may rebel for a few years in their teens if we handle things right by both expecting and giving respect, there will usually be no great problems. Blessings.

Which is why I will never be a parent; I know I will not have the fight in me when they get to the hormone years. Unless I'm allowed to use boarding or military school ...
