The latest generation of parents is too afraid to discipline their children. Our armed services must be gentle as they fight in wars. Our police force has been disabled by local governments to keep from harming the ones who mean them the most harm!
This new “time-out, no spanking” style of living has got to stop or we will find ourselves—as we are beginning to see now—living in total chaos.
Perhaps this new progressive culture out there believes somehow it will spare its children the painful lessons of life. I’ve got news for them: LIFE IS HARD! IT SUCKS AND THEN YOU DIE! These new wave parents are not doing their children any favors by excusing them from discipline and punishment that is well-deserved. Someday, not too far in the future, these teenage pool party crashers will be adults. And no matter how fast they try to run, the harsh realities of life will catch up to them. How will they deal with that—with strength and courage or with drugs and escapism?
Parents who teach their children consequences will surely build them up to be better prepared to face what life has to throw at them. That’s real love.
