At the risk of sounding like a stuck up prude, I need to ask a question. I admit that we are all different, have different parenting style etc, different ideas of what is appropriate yadda yadda. I am also aware of a mothers right to raise her kids as she sees fit. Having said that, my question is, do you think that there are certain things you can do that will influence how your child turns out as an adult? Or, do you think it really doesn't matter, they will become who they are destined to become regardless of education, back round, economic status what have you?
Last night my children and I attended a church festival. There was a Latina woman who was less than skinny, wearing spandex pushed to its very limits, wearing hoop earings as big as frizbee's and carrying a bedazzled cell phone and a playboy bunny purse. She had her two sons with her, ages about 5 and 6. These boys were wearing flat billed hats, big gold chains with crosses, baggy shorts, leather high top shoes and Lil Wayne T-shirts.
Here is where I as a prude enter...
I am sorry, but I cannot help but feel that these boys are having a lifestyle set for them that can only lead to destruction. If they were 13 and picking out their own clothes, ok well still not my choice, but at least they aren't being forced to wear it.
I felt really sorry for them. I get it, I do, that we are all different, but don't you think that some parents seem to go out of their way to set the bar low. How many educated people do you see with that "ghetto" look? Excluding entertainers (don't get me started)
I can listen to Lil Wayne all day long, but sorry, by little ones will NOT hear a song called Pussy Money Weed.
Ok, let the bashing start.
