I am so sick of overly rich people adoring their new borns. Even Jennifer Garner who I have admired says she will do anything for the happiness of her children. Excuse me but that turns my old age stomach. Life, and I don’t care how rich you are, is not easy and children should,in my opinion, be taught that it is hard, something to be conquered. Instead the new young are being taught they are adored, and will grow to believe the world owes them something, and by God they will throw a tantrum until they get it.
For some reason, far beyond my ken, life is meant to be hard, I don’t know why but it is. I don’t care if you believe in fate, the now of it all, or nothing at all. Life is hard. And if you think that parents who give all to their young on a silver platter, and constantly tell them…you are wonderful, you are magic, you are the be all and end all…well all I can say there is much disappointment waiting beyond tomorrow.
There are lessons to be learned. Forget the silver platters because when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of it all..well there are just nuts and bolts.
What have you taught your children today? What will they remember?
