Is it just me or do parents these days overly coddle their children?
If a kid is going to ride their bike they not only seem to be wearing a helmet (which I never wore) but are also wearing knee and elbow pads.
Parents want to change everything so kids don’t get their feelings hurt.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I heard they want to get rid of teachers using red ink because it’s too harsh on the kids.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â They want them to use colors like purple or green because red has a stigma.
I don’t know about you but the often harsh world I grew up in made me who I am right now.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I was as sensitive as they come as a kid and reality was what toughened me up enough to survive the world without always breaking into tears.
I realize the world has gotten a lot scarier and a lot more dangerous since I was a child.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Now predators can use the internet to find innocent children and that is a scary concept.
One of the reasons I’m not sure I want to have children is because I’m not sure I want to bring a child into the world we live in right now. Children can only be protected so much before it ends up taking away from what life is supposed to be. If it weren’t for the pain we feel in our lives at times the happy moments wouldn’t be nearly as beautiful.
