This is an open letter to you. Today I am particularly frustrated with a situation that has been ongoing and has come to the first stage of what I am sure is going to be an ending that will be very bitter in the mouths of many.
Why do you insist on the double standard? Your children learn from you, from your actions and from your lives. You are the example.
Children have an instinctive love and obligation for and to their parents. But as they grow and become more aware all the veils are lifted and your true self is revealed.
#parents need to #respect their children especially when they are grown men and women.
Respect is earned. It is not a parental right!!
I may not be the 'perfect' parent but I have always given my children space to grow...they will make their mistakes, I will make mine....but I can never blame THEM for the choices I have made.....how do we expect them to respect others and the world around them if we do not teach them the process.....forgive my ranting but I am frustrated with some members of the OLDER
generation....whose membership I think should be revoked forthwith!
Children, you cannot cure others of their blind ignorance. You can only keep the light burning inside of you to guide them when they decide to open their eyes.
