Americas children in danger.

I may tick some people off. I may have some agree with me... What this is an opinion and I as you are entitled to one:

What we need from our law makers is not more laws, or spending, or anything like that. We need sanity... law review, and a return to traditional values. Most importantly, we need to empower parents in the raising of their children. As a parent, I had a very healthy fear as my children grew older of the random nutjob calling CPS for me trying to discipline my children. I think, for the most part I did Ok. I had some big wins and some big fails... But that being said... It was always a thought in back of my mind.... Will someone see what I am doing and freak?

This ties the hands of parents... especially with "problem" children... Will there be abuse? Yes, and no law or CPS will stop it. Will a child feel picked on by their parents? Yes... I felt like I was.. but my mother was trying to make up for my father not really being a disciplinarian and then not being there... She did her best... And trust me... the woman never gave a thought to CPS when she grabbed the handiest thing to beat my butt with. I wasn't a bad kid... I was a lazy kid with a big mouth... (Not much has changed either). I really didn't get in trouble doing bad things... I got in trouble doing dumb things... or running my mouth... I was in 1 fight in school... Mr. Randy Johnson... Someone said I was "Talking about his Mama." which, looking back on it now was freaking funny, because I hardly knew the dude.. Never had a problem with him... I wonder what happened to him? Anyway... I digress..

"Parents" today are expected to deal with their kids, amid a barrage of influences outside the home.... All while, having God pulled out of school, being forced to drink this "everyone is special, everyone wins, don't hurt your feelings" kool-aid, violence and sex everywhere... and more and more people letting their children run wild... and parents wanting to just be friends... These are not your friends... these are spoiled brats with a "entitlement" mindset... They have no concept of working for your dinner.

We need to pull back on the "government knows best" reins... and give the power back to the parents. Not only that, hold parents accountable until their children are of age.

Empower the parents people... Support true morality... Support Prayer in schools... and expect more from our children. God gave you these gifts, and like any gift from God, they can be perverted and used for evil.

God bless parents that stand for their children... by standing in the way of their children making bad decisions.
