EARTH TO MOM'S!!! HELLO??? Is there Anybody home??

Ok Ladies I am going to get serious for a few minutes!!!
This may hurt some feelings but I feel it needs to be said!!!
When you were a child, where was your mother??
My mother was a stay @ home mother for 20 years,
and when her youngest child graduated high school, only then did she go back to work!!
My mother was FAR from perfect BUT...... She was ALWAYS a Mother, First and fore most!!
No matter what, my mother was there, even when I didn't think I liked her that much,lol.
My father was in the Military, he worked from 8-4 and some times was away for extended periods of time!! My mother was left with the 3 of us, as well as babysitting,
no less that 4 other children on a daily basis!!!
My Mother ALWAYS had time to make our business HER business!!
We were a very traditional house hold,
there was no other excuse not to go to school,
unless you were deathly ill.
We were at the table every night,
to eat dinner with the whole family, we all had chores!!
Our parents were strict, but for some strange reason,
they were the coolest parents in the neighbourhood!
They knew every body by name and they were always
interested in what the kids were doing!!
When my Dad wasn't away on the Ship,
he was building small skateboarding parks for our friends,
rebuilding community centers in our neighbourhood, or just hangin out on the grass!!
He was even in charge of dishing out and enforcing the community services, some of my friends ended up having to do!! But EVERYBODY loved my parents!! They didn't take any crap, and wouldn't think twice about disciplining somebody else's kids right along side me, if we were caught doing some thing wrong,lol!!
I truly believe that woman need to WAKE the HELL up and realize that, once you have children, you are a Mother first and fore most!! No matter what!!
The reason why kids these days are so
disrespectful and ignorant to the world around them,
is because they are growing up in daycare,
their parents pick them up, feed them and put them to bed,
or they are coming home to empty houses at the end of their school day!!!
If there's nobody there to listen to their daily events @ school,
where do you think they are going to turn??? That's right, the computer!!
Chat rooms, facebook, predators and major weirdos, who are always there to listen!!!
Parents complain about the amount of time children spend on electronics these days,
but they seem to forget one thing..........
Parents are the ones who are buying these things for their kids,
spending thousands of dollars every year on them,
just so they don't have to spend time talking and interacting with their children!!!
Isn't that why you became a parent in the first place???
If you do not place a computer in your child's room,
you can 100% monitor the amount of time they spend online,
as well as what they are doing and who they are interacting with!!!
Too many parents these days, are expecting other people to raise their children,
but expect to take the credit for it!!!
It disgusts me how many women out there are more concerned
with their own social lives, closets, and the corporate ladders they are climbing,
then they are to be home with their children!! Supervising their actions,
and poking their noses where they don't belong!!
There was a time, when I was 16 that I couldn't talk on the phone,
unless I was sitting in the same room as one of my parents!!
Oh ya, you bet your ass it sucked but,
they always knew what I was doing, and where I was going!!
If I wasn't home on time, they knew who to call,
if I didn't come home they knew there was something wrong and went looking.
There was not one minute in my life that I didn't know that both of my parents loved me!!!
They didn't always get along, but no matter what,
they were ALWAYS Parents first & Parents TOGETHER!!
A united front to the bitter end!!! When it came to punishments,there were no rash decisions,
they always discussed it together in another room and then came together to dish it out!!!
Parents, seem to forget that
That is our RIGHT as Parents, don't EVER forget that!!
Put your foot down more when they are young and cute,
it will be much easier to to do when they are big and ugly!! lol
It's time Mother's focus more on the lives of their children,
and the members of society they will become!!
What kind of people do you want your children to become??
If you want them to be selfish, then all you have to do is...
Just keep being selfish and the rest will just fall into place!!!
