I didn’t get the child hood I wanted, instead I got stuck with two miserable parents. Parents who said that they want to see society change but had no clue how to be pro active in seeing change. I wanted a mom to teach me how to do make up. I wanted a dad to walk me down the Isle. I wanted a mom that was willing to allow me to express myself. I wanted a dad that was sober long enough to tell me he loved me and genuinely mean it.
Your kids deserve to be treated like humans and that means letting them tap into autonomy with out holding them back or down. You aren’t showing love sending them to time out or even spanking instead you are teaching neglect and abuse. Spanking gives the idea it’s OK to hit anyone anytime if they do something wrong. That is fucking awful.
One thing I have been trying so hard to articulate lately has been if God is so big and told us to love the least of these why the hell are the Christians the ones expressing the most bigotry and hate? It makes no sense what so ever unless… No one listens in church which that is sure what the fuck it seems like. We are all trying to go through life the best we know how too and not one of us consented to being born. Boomer parents stop acting like we owe you everything and stop being so entitled. The millennials are so far from entitled and the boomers are too blind to the massive fuck up to see their own entitlement. Most boomers anyway.
