After watching this story about a 60-something bus monitor being bullied a while back I proceeded to get out-fucking-right pissed off! I know, I know…you’re thinking I’m going to be a horrible parent because I cuss and whatnot. You’re wrong, I’m going to be a great parent because I’m going to be an active participant in the life of my son!
Why the Bus Monitor???
I understand parenting is not easy. I also understand that some aspects of parenting are left up to nature in regards to the personality the child may have been born with. However, as someone who has worked hard to evolve a bucket load in my 35 years, I am a firm believer that parenting is, without question, a vitally important part of who our children become. We cannot pass the buck and say “kids will be kids” or blame things like A.D.D. or the government or teachers on how they behave. What happened in these kids’ life that made it okay for them to bully their bus monitor??? If there is a child that came from your testicles or your ovaries, then YOU are the one responsible for building and creating that human being…so get to work!
If I’m offending you and coming across as angry…good, that IS my intent. I am fed up with the apathy and lack of accountability in this world. If you are not prepared or capable of raising a child, REALLY raising a child…then keep your dick in your pants and you keep your damn legs crossed. The idea that momentary pleasure is more important than the art of parenting is absolutely beyond insane. One reason this country is sliding downhill is due to a lack of parents that are consistent, active, determined, and accountable!
Let’s get to work people…if you can’t put forth the work then don’t have the kids. If you do have kids and feel overwhelmed ask for help…it takes a community and we’re ready and willing!!
