I don't have to tell you, parents have a tougher time today raising kids with character and integrity, than ever before! With information at the speed of light, at their very fingertips 24/7, much of it not appropriate for young minds, shaping who they are! Plus regardless of the political canditates you support, you have to admit society is more approving of anything that flies in the face of traditional values now more than ever! Truly it seems that has become it's most prevalent in this generation, especially over last four years in particular!
Even aggressive behavior in young people and a more completly "me-first" self-focused view, is becoming a bigger issue with school age children. So what can we as parents do to remedy this and do our part to help make it easier on our kids as they grow up?! Heck if things keep up at this rate, it would be scary to even drive on the freeways! Can you imagine pulling in front of someone who has a perpetual bad attitude and was never taught to share?! It maybe more than just the perverbial "Bird" he shoots at you! It happens now, but just think how much more it could, if a bunch of selfish, adults, with bad attitudes and a completely entitled opinion of him/herselves were out there?!
Kids getting along seems to be one of the first things parents have to address. Not getting their way and sharing and getting along with siblings are right there at the top! Check out what one mom out of Louisianna thought was a great idea to whip this issue in her home before it got out control!
So now after you pick yourself up off the ground from laughing so hard.. (check out big sis' expression! LOL God love her...) Can't you relate?! Oh man, I'm glad there are parents that don't mind posting to share these incredible home grown tips on parenting, aren't you?!
Do you have one you can share?
