As parents it is our job to educate our children – not the government’s, not the school’s, not society’s – it’s OURS! A woman told my husband the other day that she didn’t like to punish her kids for bad behavior at school because the school already did. So if they took care of it, then she felt she didn’t need to. Oh wow! This is the same passive, socialist attitude that so many parents have about happily and willingly shirking their responsibility for teaching and properly rearing their children (and I can certainly add disciplining and teaching them manners, and what some might deem as proper values, as well). I am proud to say that I am not one of those parents, and I learned from the best, my parents. We were lovingly reared and taught by them.
