If you want to know what us Adults should be teaching our kids.......

Watch the Movie "Coach Carter" !

There ARE folks out there....that actually "CARE" for kids, unlike those that just find giving "Free" stuff to kids as a "Reverent" cause (Sanders and Warren types)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coach_Carter

Coach Carter is a 2005 American biographical teen sports drama film starring Samuel L. Jackson and directed by Thomas Carter. The film is based on the true story of Richmond High School basketball coach Ken Carter (played by Samuel L. Jackson), who made headlines in 1999 for suspending his undefeated high school basketball team due to poor academic results.

"ADULTS"....should be wanting, and " INSISTING " the SAME from their "OWN KIDS" !

These days....."Lazy" is easier for "Adults" ! Lets the "Adults" spend more time on "THEMSELVES" !

Pretty Sad for sure !

Time for "ADULTS" to "Learn" again !

"ur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Try Teaching your kids WELL...… and not teaching them they "Deserve" a "Participation Trophy"..... for just "Being" !

We aren't here to make our own kids life easier, we are here to teach them how to make it in the "World".....on their OWN !

IIM,

I don't understand what you are talking about. Are you a parent? If so how old are your kids because I think you are very out of touch with being a parent now. 

I raised my kids to be self-sufficient. They worked hard in high school, and they did charitable works. They went to college on a total scholarship. I know loads of kids just like them. 

So please explain, what you think is going on.

You shouldn't put that "Thought" in Print. Very unbecoming of you !

I have 3 grown children, VERY productive for themselves and in society. They weren't given "Participation Trophys" in their lives, so they would "FEEL Good" about themselves.

Yours ?

I also have 3 grandchildren, that need teaching to be like their ADULT parents are.

"I raised my kids to be self-sufficient. They worked hard in high school, and they did charitable works. They went to college on a total scholarship. I know loads of kids just like them." 

I'm sure your smart, so what do you actually see being probogated on TV, In Print, and being spouted by the schools and Democrat Presidential runners these days ?

Pacifiers ?

Safe Spaces ?

Whitewashing of self inflicted debt ?

Deservance ?

Would you teach your children those kind of things …… Because it's the new ?

How is that very unbecoming? I was trying to ascertain how in touch you were with what is currently going on, and if you have grandchildren I would say, not very.

Yours ?

Obviously you didn't read my post. I said how mine were doing.

I'm sure your smart, so what do you actually see being probogated on TV, In Print, and being spouted by the schools and Democrat Presidential runners these days ?

What does that have to do with parenting? 

And your list does not apply to all of the Democrats. 

Whitewashing of self inflicted debt ?

Look, there are two truths that go with that one. When I went to college it cost for a private U $5,600 a year. Adjust that for inflation and it comes to $22,157.02, but that is NOT the cost. it is over $60K. Even state schools are way up. So are you advocating for kids not to go college, or to rein in the cost of college, or only have kids who get scholarships go to college? Pick one. 

The second thing is, not all of the Dems are advocating for paying off school debt. 

Would you teach your children those kind of things …… Because it's the new ?

Obviously I taught my kids to work hard as I posted earlier. Should I feign offense at that question?

No.... Ascertaining would be to just "Ask" without the final commentary. 
2.1  Perrie Halpern R.A.  replied to  It Is ME @2  - "I think you are very out of touch with being a parent now." 

"and if you have grandchildren I would say, not very."

Grandchildren aren't children that need to be taught "Real Life" ?

Another, "should not have put in print moment of yours" ! 

Apparently, using your own posting, you are "For" making it easy for kids ….. NOW !

By the way...."Ivey League" isn't what it used to be. ALL my kids chose to go to a cheaper "College". They ALL have 6 figure or over jobs. They even take me and my wife on vacation from time to time, although I could take them ALL on vacation at the same time. They just like to show their appreciation now and again.

"The second thing is, not all of the Dems are advocating for paying off school debt. "

The ones on "The Stage" are ! If those "Stage hands" make it to the "Presidency, would that not mean ALL the voters advocated for what they were selling ?

"And your list does not apply to all of the Democrats."

Maybe "Listen" to the democrats running for President of this United States. They're wanting to Apply their ideas over and above Democrats !

"and if you have grandchildren I would say, not very."

That is not an insult. That is just a statement and one the ended up being true. Being a grandparent means you are beyond the age of current parenting.

Apparently, using your own posting, you are "For" making it easy for kids ….. NOW !

Huh?

By the way...."Ivey League" isn't what it used to be. ALL my kids chose to go to a cheaper "College". They ALL have 6 figure or over jobs.

I never said it was. I didn't go to an Ivy League college and I did fine. My kids on the other hand did and they are doing well, too. And I think that it's very nice that your kids treat you well and they should!

The ones on "The Stage" are ! If those "Stage hands" make it to the "Presidency, would that not mean ALL the voters advocated for what they were selling ?

That is not true. There are plenty of candidates that are not for free school. 

Maybe "Listen" to the democrats running for President of this United States. They're wanting to Apply their ideas over and above Democrats !

Now that was condescending. I do listen and that is how I know what their positions are. I also read. Here try this: https://www.politico.com/2020-election/candidates-views-on-the-issues/amy-klobuchar/

"There are plenty of candidates that are not for free school."

Which ones ?

Klobuchar had a hard time meekly raising her hand when the candidates were asked if they opposed a "Socialism".

At least "SHE" had "SOME GUTZ", to quickly do it ! The "Others".…... not one thing from them.

Are the "Other" ones "SCARED" of Bernie and Warren bots !

"Now that was condescending."

How so ?

Did you not see/hear how the "Others" are afraid to go against Bernie and Lizzy in any meaningful way ?

Your actual words were: " Very unbecoming of you !" which implied something, right? Please set me straight.

And I disagree that the others were shy about raising their hands. They actually did a tally on one of the debates who agreed and who didn't. 

How so ?

It doesn't matter. You will never agree.

Did you not see/hear how the "Others" are afraid to go against Bernie and Lizzy in any meaningful way ?

actually no.

Correct ! As it actually said ….. It was "Unbecoming"..... Nothing more, nothing less !

"It doesn't matter. You will never agree."

Believe it or not....I've watched all the Democrat Debates..... and your correct, I won't AGREE after what I've seen/heard from those debates.

"And I disagree that the others were shy about raising their hands. They actually did a tally on one of the debates who agreed and who didn't." 

Really ? A quicky Yea or Nah spineless vote ? Where's the actual "Debate" ? This is the "Democrat's Presidential DEBATES" …..right ?

Which is an insult. Thank you for the definition.

I gave you a link to Politico, which clearly shows who believes what. That should speak for each candidate.

That is not up to them. That is up to the moderators.

Well... let’s see, love, caring, kindness, responsibility, respect, plus many other things. Being a parent is challenging and no parent is perfect. You do the best you can and hope that they become decent human beings.
