You hit one thing on the head. It’s up to the parents to lead and show the kids some things, the difference between right and wrong, ethics, morals, and how to put forth your best effort and have pride in a job well done. And how to change a tire lol.Lol,
No need to get defensive fellas.
Seeing some of you guys are so optimistic about kids not needing to have basic tools in their belt . Ok , lets forget 4th grade math lol. Most boys can't change a flat on their car,they'd rather wait two hours for roadside to do a 10 minute ordeal.. Parents dont want their kids learning practical things in life, but playing with a gadget for 19 hrs a day is fine lol! Personally ,I wouldn't want my kid to be brainwashed by the www, ie. the electronic babysitter. Try this the next time you go into ANY store, ask a kid a legitimate question regarding product in said store? -Deer in the headlights! It's like their first day,everyday.
Yet they deserve $15 an hour? Nope !
Let's be clear,
I'm not ragging on all kids,some are definitely over achievers, most are not. Most think they do not have to apply themselves, but just show up. What's more sad, is how their parents want to bury their heads in the sand, and make excuses why their children are so lazy and unambitious,and reward them for being that way. That's not teaching them chit ! How about accountability for starters? Show up on time ,give an honest days work, don't make anyone pick up your slack ! Simple enough.
For the over achieving kids , hooray for the parents?
Honestly ,this post shouldn't rub you guys the wrong way, if your kids don't fit into this category........right? Consider yourselves lucky that you did good,and your kids were paying ATTN.
I'm just glad I was given the opportunity to carry my own weight in life, and taught to not ride the coat tails of others.
Feeding yourself,and waiting to be fed, are two very different things. I'll teach my kid to hunt, instead of starve.
Hardly reinventing the wheel:/
