Parenting In The World Today


10154092_705584726160458_921790716_n

You know dealing with teenagers is a pain in the behind. They do not reason with you and they think that they know what it best for them. It is amazing that teenagers think that they know everything in the world when it comes to a variety of things. They think that parents are just giving them a hard time just for fun. However, parents are just trying to make them see that live is not easy, and they cannot always have what they want out of life.

People thinks that it is easy to work and that all they have to do is show up. They think that they do not have to do anything else. Teenager’s do not like to work and they do not think that they should have to do more than their share. Teenager’s just do not understand how the world works and they do not want to know. Sometimes you just have to let them see for themselves how the world can be and maybe then they will understand.

One of these days they will have their own children and they will be going through the same stuff that they put their parents through but only worse. It is crazy how when you get older; have children of your own that you find out that your parents were right about some of the things that you thought you knew about when you were a teenager. It is the little things in life that bring back those memories of your childhood and how you did not listen to your parents. You try to bring your children up the right way and hope that everything works out in the end. Once they reach that age of adulthood you hope that the things that you have taught them over the years will make them a honest, hardworking person.

However, you cannot see into the future and the only thing that you can do is be there for your children to help them through their trials, and tribulations throughout their life. Many parents do not care if their teenager’s are doing the right thing or not. In this day and time it is considered okay for a teenager to become pregnant, have sex before they are married, and many other things. Where did the morals go? What is different about the world today compared to years ago when boys, and girls courted each other before they had intimate relationships?

Parents do not seem to mind that their teenager’s are going out to parties having a good time; getting pregnant, doing drugs, drinking, and anything else that they want. Parents do not seem to mind that their 13 year old is going to have a baby when they are just a baby themselves. She knows that when she had her first child she did not know anything about being a mother to another life. It was something that she had to learn through trials. However, she could not be a better mother now and she cherishes the fact that her children are who they are right now. She keeps her children close, and tries to keep them out of harms way. Because you cannot trust anyone in this world today. You never know who will hurt you and you do not know when people will snap.

She knows that she cannot keep them safe forever but she does know that right now she can limit the people that they are around. At least her children have enjoyed their childhood without the worry of games, cell phones, internet, and other things. She is old fashioned in the way that she thinks and some people seem to think that her children will not appreciate the things that they have done for them. You know her children say “I Love You” a million times a day. They see what happens in the world today from the news, and the radio. Children missing, abducted, raped, murdered, and whatever else happens to them. My heart hurts every time I have to hear about little children, adults, and many other innocent people that have to go through anything like this.

It is sad and scary to think that our children have to grow up in a world like this. It is sickening to see that the world is heading into a place that no one wants to live in. Every time you turn on the television something bad has happened somewhere in the world. All it takes is saying something wrong to someone and they will snap into someone that you do not know. How safe is our children in this world? Why do parents not keep a closer eye on what their children are doing? What happens when your child or teenager gets into trouble do you bail them out or let them learn a lesson? When she was a teenager she did not think about having sex, doing drugs or hanging out with the cool people. That is all these children think about now is making sure that they are part of the crowd doing what the cool kids do. It is quite amazing that people allow themselves to follow the crowd instead of being themselves.

You do not have to act like something that you are not because if people like you for who you are then you will not have any problems. She tries to be herself in every situation because if people do not know the real you how are they going to know if they like you. Now, in the age of technology parents have many things that they can put their children in front of to keep them out of their hair.  A built in babysitter that is going to corrupt their minds from playing games, sitting in front of the television, playing on their cell phones, I pads, and handheld devices. What happened to making children go outside and use their imagination?

Oh wait! It is easier to buy them expensive items to keep them occupied and out of your hair than to make them use their minds to have fun. Children are learning way to much at such an early age that they think that it is the way that it is done. Parents do way to much in front of their children and what happens when these children see these things. When you do drugs in front of your children they think that it is okay to do these things. Then you have your children selling drugs to other little children because they saw their parents doing it. When children see their parents having sex in front of them they think that it is okay and so they are going to do the same thing. Because that is what they have seen when you get a little child that can tell you everything about sex there is something wrong with that picture.

She tries to understand why parents do some of the things that they do and she just cannot understand what people do. Allowing your child to get their nails done like an adult, dressing them up to look like they are older than what they are, letting them go out on dates before they even become a teenager, allowing them to have a Facebook page at ten or eleven years old, giving them cell phones at ten years old, I pads at the age of eight or younger, buying the most expensive games because that is what your child wants, and anything that they want. The future children of the world spend their time playing way to many games and even adults get carried away with playing games. She has seen many adults live their life for playing games, which that is their right if that is what they want to do with their life.

This is not teaching our children anything about the real world. When they grow up and get out on their own they are not going to know what to do because their parents bought them anything and everything that they wanted. So what is the parents going to go to their house all the time to take care of them? Clean their house, cook for them, do their laundry, and whatever else they want. When does it end? When do they finally learn that they cannot have everything that they want out of life unless they work for it. When do they step up and do these things for themselves? It is essential that they learn how to cook, clean, work, and do things for themselves.

To each his own in this world. This is some of the reasons why children are going around doing the stupid things that they do. When you are stuck in a house playing nothing but violent games, and watching violence on television it sends the wrong message to our younger crowd. They seem to think that it is okay to do these things because the people in the videos, and on television make it as real as they possibly can. It would be interesting to see what type of effects playing violent games or watching violence everyday has on the mind, and brain. It has to send some type of hidden message within the things that they are seeing to make them think that it is okay to shoot up schools, rape, murder or whatever to other people.

When you have games that allow gamers to rape, murder, and who knows what else in the virtual world they will apply those to the real world. How are they going to know what is real and what is not if they are allowed to play these games for long periods of time. A couple of weeks ago she was watching Criminal Minds and there was a man and a woman going around raping, and killing women because it was all part of a game that they were playing for long periods of time. Parents have to know that this is damaging their child’s mind.

Okay now, that I have said my peace about certain things I know that there will be more later on throughout this writing process. It is a scary world that we live in now and the ones that are going to suffer the most is our children, their children, and so on.

Naked Man Scares Girl In Walgreens’ Restroom After Sex


How crazy is this? It is amazing what people do in public…

CBS Tampa

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Police arrested a man after a 6-year-old girl saw him naked in the women’s restroom at a Walgreens’ store.

According to Winter Haven Police, Christopher Mahurin and Jenna Lynn Frey had sex in one of the stalls of the women’s restroom at a Walgreens store Saturday around 8:00 p.m.

The girl’s father stood nearby outside the restroom as the young girl entered. Mahurin left the stall completely naked and pushed the girl towards the door and she began screaming, WFLA reported.

Her father heard the screams and entered the restroom to grab his daughter.

American Breakfast Foods are Getting Pricier


Yet people still pay the prices regardless of the amount of the meals.

CBS DC

NEW YORK — Breakfast is now being served with a side of sticker shock.

The price of bacon is surging and the cost of other morning staples, like coffee and orange juice, is set to rise because of global supply problems, from drought in Brazil to disease on U.S. pig farms.

And it’s not just the first meal of the day that’s being affected. The cost of meats, fish and eggs led the biggest increase in U.S. food prices in nearly 2 ½ years last month, according to government data. An index that tracks those foods rose 1.2 percent in February and has climbed 4 percent over the last 12 months.

While overall inflation remains low, the increases in food prices are forcing shoppers to search out deals and cut back.

Denise Gauthier, 54, a screenwriter in North Hollywood, Calif., calls the rising prices “shocking and outrageous.” To cope, she…

Goodbye, Twitter Music: the app will die in mid-April


Even though I do not use the music app I thought I would share…..

Gigaom

Built in secrecy and released in a high-profile swirl of hype just under a year ago, Twitter (s twtr) is finally pulling the plug on it’s #music app. According to a tweet from the company, #music’s iPhone app (s aapl) has been deleted from iTunes as of Friday, and the service will cease on April 18 — coincidentally, the day the service was first announced.

Twitter #music was meant to be Twitter’s foray into “music sharing,” intimately working with engineers from Rdio and Spotify to create an extra social layer for streaming music services. The company had acquired music ranking service We Are Hunted to build #music months before it debuted in mid-April of last year.

Although #music…

Frederick Woman Guilty in Son’s Death


This is so sad that someone would do this to their own child….:(

CBS DC

FREDERICK, Md. — A Frederick woman faces up to 30 years in prison for fatally abusing her 3-month-old son.

Twenty-three-year-old Elizabeth Tramonte was convicted Friday in Frederick of first-degree child abuse resulting in death after entering an Alford plea to the charge. In an Alford plea, a defendant doesn’t admit guilt but acknowledges the state has enough evidence to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Sentencing is set for May 15.

Tramonte was charged in the November 2011 asphyxiation death of Blake Tramonte.

Prosecutors say an autopsy and subsequent investigation revealed evidence of physical abuse.

The News That Interests Me Most


Sunday News after the Passing

I like to read the front page, and then work my way through the paper to the comics. The comics are the best part of the paper. Many of the articles that are in the newspaper are interesting to read. But I live in a small town so the articles are short and to the point. The one section of the paper that I do not care too much about is Sports. About the only thing that I like to watch with my husband is the UFC. I love to watch a good fight.
