We Need To Take Back Our Kids!

What happened to good old days?

You cannot tell me so much has changed since we went to school. So many kids feel threatened, bullied, and so many feel there is no one to talk to. There are so many commercials on ant-bullying, help for families in conflict. This playground image used to say it all. Fun on the playground,everyone getting along,sharing the swing. Now it seems like it is easier to deal with conflict with a gun or a knife. Teachers are afraid of the students. A few short years ago, students and teachers showed respect for one another, you showed up to class to learn. Today, it is easy to skip class, smoke, drink, have sex outside school grounds. I heard K-12 has over 2 million students because students learn at their own pace,plus you have all the drama of school anymore. There is so much at stake for our kids future. I could not imagine having to go through a metal detector or being searched just to enter my home room class. K-9 units and metal detectors is the normal in the schools.

Citizens are afraid to go to the malls, the grocery store, post office for fear of being targeted. Violence used to be more heard of in a big city, now small towns are making headlines. So many families target practice together, go hunting , I understand that, but the kids know where the guns are kept what is worse, so many know the combinations to the gun case. It would be hard as a parent to wonder if I can trust my child enough not to take my weapon to show their friends. So many accidents happen when a gun just went off. Mornings are crazy for so many families. You rush out the door in the morning not giving a second thought as to what is in the child’s backpack. So many teens today have a phone attached to the ear, they text a question not ask it. what happened to communication? I see so many commercials that center on one thing the phone. I can’t believe the phone is part of the dinner table decor. The yummy sandwich trumped talking on the phone … supposed to be priceless how about just plain rude manners. Several years ago TV Land had a commercial about eating together. Really, we need a an actor to tell us to eat together? I know we all lead very busy lives but at what expense to our children?
