Parenting Series-Doing The Right Thing In A World Of Compromise; Teach Your Children Truth!

We live in a world of compromise. More then ever I hear parents excusing their lack of parenting by saying that everyone is like that, or things have changed. People with no conviction or people that are lazy always use the excuse that times are changing and we must too. That’s true for some things like gas prices and the cost of living, but are we becoming a society willing to adopt and adapt to anything that comes our way just so we don’t disrupt the flow? It seems that parents today are not only letting their children do things that are totally inappropriate- but things that are harmful to the child.

Recently  I read a book that a pastor wrote ( don’t be offended) and the subject of the chapter was ” honoring parents” and how children are supposed to obey and honor their parents. He described the culture we live in as harmful because parents today are allowing their children to disrespect them, to do things that are highly inappropriate and the parents are viewing themselves as progressive or ” cool”. The fact is all they are doing is setting their child up for total failure in this world. In the real work world, respect is a must. Children are not going to keep jobs if they disrespect their boss, wear pants down below their rear end, and talk like they are confused about their culture.

A friend of mine called me last week and told me he was in shock because he glanced at his daughter’s grade school text book to find a page on how to practice anal sex safely. There were specific details about lubrication and other very inappropriate issues that no 12 year old should be reading. He went on to say that the same school who was using the textbooks were coming down on students who were mentioning God or wanting to have a moment of silence in their day to pray. I am pretty understanding when it comes to parenting and I get that different cultures do things different ways. That’s all good and it makes sense, but there is a line.

Right is still right and wrong is still wrong folks. We all know it in our knower and it is very wrong to teach our children that what is wrong is right and what is hurtful to relationships is ok. This dangerous word called TOLERANCE is straight from the pit of hell. The way it is used today anyway is destroying any hope of a moral fabric that this country once had. I am all for tolerance when it means accepting a person where they are and helping them to overcome any obstacles they are facing. However using the word to pretend that things which are dangerous are acceptable, and things that are an absolute abomination are just fine is wrong.

I watched 2 mothers debate what their children should be exposed to recently and it was amazing to me. The ” progressive” mother defended her son being taught that about sexual orientations at 8 was fine and the other mom said that right and wrong had not changed and no matter how weird this world gets, it is still our job to teach right, not to teach popular. Parents- don’t forsake what you know to be true for the ease of it. This is your kid here, tell the truth.

Social Worker - 20+ years. Experienced with mental and behavioral health as well as alternative education, juvenile justice, addictions treatment also. Currently working with agencies and insurers on changing the way all the systems in these work, using my methods and model of treatments for all the above. We have a horrible system in place our success rates in treatment are 20 -35% and we pay doctors to keep us sick. We also have a problem with drug companies paying doctors to write for dangerous meds to even kids, all in the name of $.. I plan on changing that and in the meantime have been aggressively working at using this site as a platform to offer coaching, counseling and many other services in several languages..oh, and services that actually work! There's a new concept.. I use models I have developed and used with success rates more like 75-85%. Only programs I personally put together and ran in my 20 years in field... Please join the incredible group of followers here as very exciting things are happening. We currently have followers in 60 countries. Most of all, I promise to never let you leave my watch still suffering. My goal has always been to educate, dial in the least restrictive, least expensive , most successful and timely treatment possible. I want everyone to know that our country is a pharmaceutical playground and there ARE cures for things like cancer, liver disease, parkinsons and many more..as a matter of fact they are being cured ( not symptoms treated forever) but actually cured of diseases in many countries who don't allow drug companies to dictate laws.. Money is the only reason we are not using the same healthy and safe natural remedies that God put on this planet. Am I saying that our healthcare system is aware of cures but watches millions die slow painful deaths all in the name of money? Well, I will have to think about it - UMM- YES! I am saying that. If you have not read my homepage please do..let me tease you with a tidbit to get you there... Did you know that the USA is one of only 2 countries in entire world that even ALLOWS any drug companies to put an ad for drugs on television? Hmm. Why does the entire world protect their own, and make sure swindlers cant twist their minds an manipulate them into buying snake oil from drug companies..and why do they make legal the natural plants that heal cancer and so much more?
