by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Children are Bored, Impatient, Easily Upset and Friendless
Editor’s note: We’re continuing on with Lori’s bashing of modern parenting and public school. While getting your children to help around the house is a good thing and instilling a work ethnic is also beneficial in the long run as you will notice Lori never explains how all these rotten children she’s blaming rule their homes and demand to have all their wants met.
Children today get everything they want right when they want it. This causes a child to not develop self-control which is beneficial for every area in life. “The ability to delay gratification is one of the key factors for future success.” Children need to learn to work hard for what they want just as most adults must do. (This is why the entitlement culture we are presently living is so harmful for human beings; it takes away motivation to work hard.)
As many of you have noticed, children rule their homes more than the parents do these days. “Unfortunately, in order to achieve our goals in our lives, we have to do what’s necessary, which may not always be what we want to do”. The major problem with children ruling the home are parents who are allowing their children to rule. Parents need to let it be known when the children are very young who rules the home and it’s not the children. Our children clearly knew this and respected us as their authority. It makes child-raising a whole lot easier as well.
We have become a nation of seekers of pleasures rather than seekers of God. Children need to learn to work from a very young age because work is good for everyone. “Why aren’t children helping us in the kitchen or with laundry? Why don’t they tidy up their toys?” Next time your children say they are bored, tell them to clean, declutter, or organize something.
